Google+ profile suspensions

Examples of violations

Violations include:

  • Pretending to be someone or something that you don't represent
  • Posting content or comments that violate our policies

Learn more about our User Content and Conduct Policies.

What happens when a Google+ profile is suspended

When your profile is suspended, other people on Google+ can't see your profile.

You can still sign in to Google+ and see what other people share, but you won't be able to do things like:

  • Share new posts or comments
  • +1 content
  • Join or create Collections or Communities
  • Add people to your circles

When your Google+ profile is suspended, you can still use other Google services, like Search and Gmail.

If your Google+ profile is suspended for more than 60 days, your posts and comments might be removed.

Appeal a Google+ profile suspension

To appeal a suspension of your Google+ profile, use a computer to sign in to your suspended account and follow the on-screen instructions. You may be asked to remove or change any content that violates our policies, or to provide more information.

Note: In some cases, you may not be able to appeal the suspension.
