What is the purpose of Business Verification?

Business verification is a service offered by SiteLock where it verifies the phone number and physical presence of a business. This is typically conducted to assure online users that a business actually exists and it is not a fly-by-night setup. This consists of:

  • Phone Verification - You need to enter your phone number in the SiteLock Panel and request a verification. Within an hour, you will receive an automated call from SiteLock and you will be provided with a 4 digit code. You then need to submit that code in the SiteLock Panel to verify your phone number.

  • Postal Address Verification - After providing your postal address in the SiteLock Panel, you will receive a letter at your postal address within 7-10 days of requesting verification. This letter will contain a 4 digit code that needs to be submitted in the SiteLock Panel to verify the physical address.

Note

If you want to display your contact information on the TrustSeal, it is necessary to verify your business details.
