What if my business already has a verified badge?

Your business might have received a verified badge previously to indicate that your account was official. If you have a verified badge today, you keep your verified status. No action is required from you.

Update business information before subscribing

Make sure your business profile is up to date before you become verified so your customers have accurate information about you. Once your business has been verified, your WhatsApp business profile business information such as business name, category, address, email, or website, will be locked. You will not be able to update these without losing your verified status. Additionally, once your account is verified, your profile picture will be locked for 20 days. After that period of time, you’ll be able to apply to update your profile picture twice every 60 days. This helps us keep WhatsApp safe for everyone, and to protect your account from being impersonated.
If you change your business information after your account has been verified, your verification will be canceled and you’ll have to resubscribe for verification. Note that canceling your Meta Verified subscription removes all but your 4 most recently used linked devices, removes your web page from the web, and makes its address link available for others to claim.
