Verified business accounts have been authenticated using a multi-step verification process to help you know whether you're chatting with the right business.
The badge next to the contact's name means that Meta has confirmed that it is the authentic presence for that person or business.
The verified badge is a tool to help people find the real accounts of brands and businesses using WhatsApp. If an account has the verified badge, we've confirmed that it represents who or what it says it does.

Note: Every WhatsApp message is protected by the same Signal encryption protocol that secures messages before they leave your device. When you message a WhatsApp business account, your message is delivered securely to the destination chosen by the business.
