The pub.dev verified publisher badge lets you know that the pub.dev site verified the identity of the publisher of a package. For example, dart.dev is the verified publisher for packages that Google’s Dart team supports.
The badge appears in several places on pub.dev, next to packages that verified publishers published:
- Package search results
- Package detail pages
- Publisher profile pages
- The pub.dev front page
Each publisher has a page with a list of
all packages belonging to that publisher,
plus additional details such as the publisher’s contact email.

To ensure that creating verified publishers is low cost and available to anyone, pub.dev relies on DNS (domain name system) domains as an identification token. We chose DNS verification because many package authors already have a trusted domain and a homepage for that domain. During the publisher creation process, pub.dev verifies that the user creating the verified publisher has admin access to the associated “Domain Property”, based on existing logic in the Google Search Console.
