Some well-known public figures and Pages with large followings (ex: celebrities, journalists, government officials, popular brands and businesses) are verified by Facebook as having an authentic identity. You'll see a blue badge next to their names. Hover over the blue badge on a verified profile or Page to learn more.
We verify profiles or Pages to help you be sure that they are who they claim to be. Keep in mind that not all authentic profiles and Pages are verified and that you can't request to have your profile or Page verified. You can report fake accounts that are impersonating you, your business or your brand.
If your profile or Page isn't verified, there are other ways to help your followers or the people that like your Page know that your identity is authentic. For example, you can:
  • Link to your Facebook profile or Page from your official website
  • You can complete the About section of your profile or Page to provide more information.

Can I request that my profile or Page be verified? 

Facebook automatically verifies certain accounts to help people find authentic profiles and Pages. We're not currently able to accept requests for verified profiles or Pages from the public. If you see a fake account that's impersonating you, your business or your brand, please report it.
