Recently, we at DigitalMaas launched a new feature called InfoLock that prevents internet users from changing a listing’s information.
We’ve been long aware that info security is often an issue for Google Business Profile owners. A major worry is that a user edits key info on their listing even when it is accurate and updated. If you search through local SEO forums looking for a solution to prevent internet users from editing your details, many specialists and experts say that isn’t possible.
With InfoLock on the DigitalMaas Platform, you’ll be able to lock a specific field and automatically reject all suggested edits for that field.
How does InfoLock work?
You’ll be able to find this in your individual location overview. To activate it, simply click on the lock icon on the right side of a specific field.
GBP sections/properties included in InfoLock
- Business Name
- Phone Number
- Primary & Secondary categories
- Business Hours
- Website URL
- Business Description
Why should businesses activate InfoLock?
1. Confirms the validity of location information
You want your customers to trust that the details on your Google Business Profile are true, updated and accurate, and it’s a red flag if any of your info is wrong. This feature ensures that your business details are correct and saves you time from trying to reject any and all suggested edits.
2. Comes straight from the source
Customers no longer have to wonder if the information about your business is correct. Because you’ve locked certain parts of your Profile from being edited, business details are certified true and correct and indeed come from the source and will lessen your worries about possible cyber-attacks from competitors.
3. A much-needed solution
We mentioned earlier that local SEO specialists don’t have a solid answer as to how business owners can lock their information on their Business Profiles. The DigitalMaas Platform now gives you that confidence that a solution is within reach and works with just a couple of clicks.
This feature is available for Platinum and Premium customers only. To subscribe or upgrade, please contact our Customer Success Team.
