Report abuse

To keep Classroom safe for everyone, we remove content that violates Classroom’s abuse program policies.

Who can report abuse?

Only students using a personal Google Account for Classroom can report abuse. To find out your account type, check the email address you use to sign in to Classroom. If it ends with @example.com, you can report abuse, but if it ends with @yourschool.edu, you can’t.

If you’re a G Suite user, contact your organization’s administrator to report a violation.

If you’re not sure what kind of account you have, see how to sign in to Classroom.

What happens when you report abuse?

When you report a class as abusive, the report and the class are reviewed. Classes that violate the abuse program policies are removed.

If you report a post or a comment as abusive, it’s removed immediately.
