Configure your DigiCert brand site seal

DigiCert Basic, Thawte, and GeoTrust TLS/SSL certificates come with a non-animated site seal. When you interact with one of these site seals, you see additional details about the domain, the organization, the TLS/SSL certificate, and the validation.

The site seal brand is tied to the certificate brand. In other words, to display the DigiCert Smart Seal, you need to have a DigiCert Secure Site or Secure Site Pro TLS/SSL certificate installed on your site. To display the DigiCert or GeoTrust site seal, you must install a Basic or GeoTrust TLS/SSL certificate on your site.
