Verify Your App from Facebook

In order to use Facebook app ID on your website, you must verify Your App from Facebook. Even though the verification application won’t take time to set up, it takes around a week to get verified.

To submit the verification application, you have to prepare the following things first:

  1. A completely developed Facebook app
  2. A 1024×1024 pixel compliant app icon image
  3. Send at least 1 successful API call
  4. Create a screen recording by using your app from a user’s perspective
  5. Make your app publicly available
  6. Create a test user and share the credentials 

To know more about the full requirements, check the official requirements list on Facebook. If you have everything on hand, now you can submit your app for review. Facebook recently published a step-by-step guide to this review submission process. It may take around a week to verify your app.

You must make a successful API call for each permission within 30 days of the App Review submission. Otherwise, Facebook won’t verify your app.
