Filing a report

Report an issue 

If you see another player bullying or harassing or threatening players, cheating, or otherwise violating the Stadia code of conduct, you can report them. All reports are reviewed. The safety of our players is our top priority. Responses to violations of the Stadia code of conduct vary, and can include:

  • Assignment of a new Stadia Name, if you create an inappropriate Stadia Name.
  • Temporary bans: If you violate our policies, we may send you a warning. Repeated violations of our policies may result in temporary loss of access to Stadia or temporary restrictions to features such as communications and multiplayer games for varying amounts of time.
  • Permanent ban: Access to the platform may be suspended if you commit egregious or repeated violations or try to circumvent suspensions through the use of multiple accounts. 

The Stadia code of conduct can be found at g.co/stadia/conduct

Note: We will never reveal your Stadia Name, or any other information about you, to any other players that are involved in the incident you’re reporting.
