Why You Need to Verify Your Facebook Business Before May 1!!Posted by Nitin Jain / March 27th, 2023 / No responses
Recently, Facebook has made some changes in its policies for app developers. Essentially, app developers who require advanced access permissions (on the Facebook developer console) are now required to complete business verification. This means that if your app uses Facebook’s services, such as Facebook Pixel or Facebook Login, you must complete your business verification.
Things to Know About the Recent Changes!!
Apps that require advanced permissions and data sharing for functioning, must be linked to a verified business entity. Facebook has recently introduced these major changes on the Facebook Developer console. In case you have an app developed and using advanced access (such as email, public profile, etc) you will require to complete the Facebook business verification before May 1, 2023.
However, if the app is exclusively intended for use by app users with a role in the app itself, verification isn’t mandatory.
The app developers can directly verify their Facebook business via their Facebook developer console admin panel. Furthermore, according to policies of Facebook, only an individual with an Admin role in the business will be able to finish the verification process.
