Impersonation report guidelines

  • Profiles or pages with clear malicious or personal attacks will be removed, with no proof of identity necessary from the person making the report.
  • Profiles with no clear malicious goals, but perhaps with just your full name, may require you to send a photo of a government issued ID, such as a driver license. You don't need to submit it as you fill out the form, but we may request this information for our investigation.
  • It's possible that another person coincidentally shares your name and isn’t impersonating you. We don’t take action on profiles like these.
  • Pages that impersonate another company or organization will require an authorized representative of the company or organization being impersonated to provide a form of business verification.

While we review each report, please note that we won't personally notify you of our decision. If you see that the profile is still available within a few days, it's likely that we've determined it isn't in violation of our policies.
