About Google Screened

Note: Google Screened is currently only available in certain verticals in the U.S.
Google Screened helps professional service firms build a trusted reputation online. Businesses with this badge go through extensive background and licence checks.

On Local Service 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 licence check, and in some categories, a background check. See Requirements by category for details.

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

Who it covers

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