Google Screened

Google Screened provides you added protection since businesses with this badge go through extensive background and license checks. 

On Local Service listings, you will see the Google Screened icon  next to these businesses. 

Financial Planners are an exception and may still receive a Google Screened badge without any customer reviews.

How it works

All firms that have the Google Screened badge must pass a business-level background and a business-owner background check. Additionally, each professional in the business must pass a license check and the business overall must have a 3.0 star rating or higher. In some categories, each professional in the business must also pass a background check. See Requirements by category for details.

These checks ensure that the professionals you work with have been vetted and provides you added peace of mind as you work with them.  

Who it covers

Only firms that provide professional services including Law, Financial Planning, and Real Estate are eligible for the Google Screened badge.
