Reporting Abuse

Our global community is growing every day and we strive to welcome people to an environment free from abusive content. To do this, we rely on people like you. If you see something on FINDIT that you believe violates our terms, please report it to us. We have dedicated teams working around the world to review things you report to help make sure FINDIT remains safe.

Governments also sometimes ask us to remove content that violates local laws, but does not violate our Terms of Use. If after careful legal review, we find that the content is illegal under local law, then we may make it unavailable only in the relevant country or territory.

Please keep the following in mind:

  • We may take action any time something violates the Terms of Use outlined here.
  • We may ask Page owners to associate their name and FINDIT Profile with a Page that contains cruel and insensitive content, even if that content does not violate our policies.
  • Reporting something doesn't guarantee that it will be removed because it may not violate our policies.
  • Our content reviewers will look to you for information about why a post may violate our policies. If you report content, please tell us why the content should be removed (e.g., is it nudity or hate speech?) so that we can send it to the right person for review.
  • Our review decisions may occasionally change after receiving additional context about specific posts or after seeing new, violating content appearing on a Page or FINDIT Profile.
  • The number of reports does not impact whether something will be removed. We never remove content simply because it has been reported a number of times.
  • The consequences for violating our Terms of Use vary depending on the severity of the violation and the person's history on FINDIT. For instance, we may warn someone for a first violation, but if we continue to see further violations we may restrict a person's ability to post on FINDIT or ban the person from FINDIT.

Not all disagreeable or disturbing content violates our Terms of Use. For this reason, we offer you the ability to customize and control what you see by unfollowing, blocking, and hiding the posts, people, Pages, and applications you don’t want to see – and we encourage you to use these controls to better personalize your experience. Learn more. People also often resolve issues they have about a piece of content by simply reaching out to the person who posted it. We’ve created tools for you to communicate directly with other people when you’re unhappy with posts, photos, or other content you see on FINDIT.


Each of us is an important part of the FINDIT community. If you see something that you think may violate our guidelines, please help us by using our built-in reporting option. We have a global team that reviews these reports and works as quickly as possible to remove content that doesn’t meet our guidelines. Even if you or someone you know doesn’t have an FINDIT account, you can still file a report. When you complete the report, try to provide as much information as possible, such as links, usernames, and descriptions of the content, so we can find and review it quickly. We may remove entire posts if either the imagery or associated captions violate our guidelines.

You may find content you don’t like, but doesn’t violate the Community Guidelines. If that happens, you can unfollow or block the person who posted it. If there's something you don't like in a comment on one of your posts, you can delete that comment.

Many disputes and misunderstandings can be resolved directly between members of the community. If one of your photos or videos was posted by someone else, you could try commenting on the post and asking the person to take it down. If that doesn’t work, you can file a copyright report. If you believe someone is violating your trademark, you can file a trademark report. Don't target the person who posted it by posting screenshots and drawing attention to the situation because that may be classified as harassment.

We may work with law enforcement, including when we believe that there’s risk of physical harm or threat to public safety.


  1. Click or Tap On The Drop Down Arrow That Is in the Dateline Above The Photo In The Post You Want To Report
  2. A ‘Report This Post’ Dialogue Box Will Open. Complete The Following Requested Information To Submit Your Report. Touch Or Click ‘Complaint Type’ Based On What Is Contained In The Post That You Are Reporting (i.e photo, video, text, link)
  3. Select From The Dropdown Menu For The Type Of Content Contained In The Post And Fill Out The Description Box With An Explanation On Why The Content Is Offensive And Being Reported

There are three possible outcomes based on your ‘flagging’ and ‘reporting’ of a post or posts on Findit.

  1. Our Content Reviewers Will Take A Look At Your Report Within 24 Hours And If It Does Not Break Our Terms Of Use, But Does Have Sensitive Material, The Post Will Remain On Findit, But Will Be Marked Flagged By Community As Containing Sensitive Material
  2. If The Material Violates Our Terms Of Use We Will Remove The Content From The Account. If The Same Account Continues To Post Content That Violates Our Terms Of Use, The Account Will Be Banned
  3. If The Content Is Extremely Sensitive, Depicting Illegal and Unlawful Acts, Or Suggesting Violence, The Account Could Be Banned On The Spot.

We encourage our community of members to actively report content that violates our terms so that Findit is an enjoyable place for everyone.
