How To Verify your Business Manager and Turn on Two-Factor Authentication

PSA: Facebook is rolling out an entire new security practice due to fraudulent activity occurring across the platforms’ Business Manager accounts and Ads Manager. 

If you don’t want to get shut down and experience issues such as ads randomly being disapproved, it’s critical to make sure that you verify your Business Manager and turn on Two-Factor Authentication for your agency’s Admins.

Follow along as we take you through step-by-step how to easily verify your Business Manager, turn on Two-factor Authentication, and avoid future problems!

Verifying your Business Manager 

1. Go to business.facebook.com

2. Select the business you need to verify to be directed to its Business Manager

3. From the Business Manager home page, click Business Settings > Security Center

4. Under Business Verification, click Start Verification 

5. Enter your Business Details and click Next to proceed

IMPORTANT: If your business is not listed, follow Facebook’s guide for uploading official documents: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/159334372093366

Once you’ve confirmed your Business Details, the next step is to receive a Verification Code via text message, phone call, or email.

You’ve officially submitted your business verification details! Now, Facebook will review your submission. Make sure to look out for a notification once the review is complete!
