Instagram is a reflection of our diverse community of cultures, ages and beliefs. We’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the different points of view that create a safe and open environment for everyone. We created the Community Guidelines so you can help us foster and protect this amazing community.
If you see something that you think may violate any of our guidelines, please help us by using our built-in reporting option.
We have a global team that reviews these reports, and works to remove any content that violates our guidelines. These teams are based in locations worldwide in order to give coverage to reports 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Even if you or someone you know doesn’t have an Instagram account, you can still make 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.
It is our policy to remove content that violates our community guidelines. We may remove entire posts if either the imagery or associated captions violate our guidelines. We also may disable entire accounts for violations of our Community Guidelines.
We may work with law enforcement, including when we believe that there’s risk of physical harm or threat to public safety. For more information, visit our full blog:section here or view the full guidelines on our Help Center.
