Google Screened

Note: Google Screened is currently only available in select verticals in the US.

Google Screened professionals have passed extensive background and license checks conducted by Local Services Ads or our trusted partners. Local Services Ads verifies that their professional licenses are current and that background checks have been completed and are kept up to date.

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

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 in some categories, 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.
