Learn to report Google+ content | Learn to report Google Forum content

  • Posts must be related to Google+. If you have questions about or want to discuss another Google product, please visit that product’s forum.
  • Choose the most appropriate category for your topic. Using the appropriate category makes it easier for other forum visitors to find your topic, and it also makes it easier for other members, volunteer Top Contributors, and Googlers to help you find the answer you need as quickly as possible.
  • Posts must be easy for others to read. If you're posting in a forum, write a short subject that describes your topic. Subjects may not be in all caps or contain excessive punctuation, and posts may not contain unnecessary URLs.
  • Be careful. To ensure your safety, security, and privacy, never post your email address or any personal information you don’t want to share in the forum. Be cautious if you contact others offline or ask others to contact you.

Your posts can't include the following types of content. If they do, we may remove your post. And in more serious cases, you may be banned from the group or lose access to your Google Account.
