Flag inappropriate user profiles

Profiles of users who are contributing false information, uploading offensive content, or taking other abusive actions that violate Google Maps user contributed policy can be flagged for review. See the instructions below to flag user profiles who are contributing policy violating content on Google Maps.

Before you begin

  • Check the policy. Only flag user profiles that contribute content that violates Google policies. Don't flag users that contribute content you don't like but is still factually accurate and relevant. Google doesn't get involved when merchants and customers disagree about facts, since there's no reliable way to discern who's right about a particular customer experience. Read the policy before flagging user profiles.
Be patient. It can take several days for a profile to be assessed.
