Content policy for "About me" information

About me is your place to control what people find about you as you use Google services. Our products are for everyone, and we want you to be in control of how you express your identity and how much you choose to share.

The policies below help maintain a positive experience for our users. We depend on users to let us know about content that might violate our policies. After we are notified of a possible violation, we might review the content on the profile and take action, including restricting access to content, removing content, and limiting or terminating a user’s access to Google products.

Photos and other "About me" content

Display photos, cover photos, and other information shared must comply with the Photos program policies.

Google Account name and impersonation

There are few other restrictions on your name, but to prevent spam and abuse we might put some limits on names, such as limiting length and the use of some symbols and special characters. We also limit how often you can change your name, and some words and phrases are not allowed.

Do not mislead or confuse others by pretending to be someone else or to represent an organization that you do not represent. If your "About me" information is found to be impersonating, you might lose access to certain Google products, such as YouTube.
