Ensure readers can report inappropriate content

As required by the Digital Services Act, you should make sure that people who go to your blog are able to report inappropriate content they find on your blog, including illegal content. To do this, you should use the default reporting mechanism. Follow the instructions below.

Use Blogger’s default reporting mechanism

Blogger has a built-in reporting mechanism. You can find the “Report Abuse” button in the template menu. If you use one of the standard templates provided by Blogger, the button should already be there. Depending on the template you’re using, it can be found in the footer at the bottom of the page, the sidebar, or in the navigation menu.

When you create a blog, you should make sure that you implement and retain this button. If you have previously deleted this button, you should restore it. You can use the default button even if you are building a customized blog.

If it was removed, you can add the “Report Abuse” widget to your blog from the Layout page in blog settings, or add a direct link in your template to blogger.com/go/report-abuse.
