In May 2017, Google will update its Inappropriate content policy to include dangerous and derogatory content. Google prohibits content that harasses, exploits or disparages an individual or group, or that promotes hatred, racism, violence or discrimination of an individual or group. This update will replace and incorporate current policies on intolerance, harassment and exploitation, and physical harm. The Inappropriate content policy will be updated to reflect this change.
