Vulgar language policy

Some language may not be appropriate for viewers under 18. We may consider the following factors when deciding whether to age-restrict or remove content. Keep in mind that this isn't a complete list.

  • Use of sexually explicit language or narratives.
  • Use of excessive profanity in your video.
  • Use of heavy profanity in your video’s title, thumbnail or associated metadata.


Here are some examples of content which may be age-restricted:

  • A video focused on the use of profanities such as a compilation or clip taken out of context.
  • A video featuring road rage or sustained rant with heavy profanities.
  • A video with use of heavy profanities during a physical confrontation or to describe acts of violence.
