The YouTube Trusted Flagger Program

The YouTube Trusted Flagger Program is an invitation-only program that seeks to empower YouTube users to keep their community clean.

To ensure that YouTube's Community Guidelines are followed, we have a community flagging system which allows users to report potential violations to us. Once a user flags a video, a review is triggered. Our policy enforcement team reviews flagged content 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, promptly removing material that violates our policies.

To make the flagging process more efficient, we invite a small set of users who flag content regularly to join our Trusted Flagger Program. Membership in the Trusted Flagger Program gives users access to more advanced flagging tools as well as periodic feedback, making flagging more effective and efficient. As always, the policy team at YouTube makes the final determination of whether content should be removed.

YouTube enables billions of people to discover, watch and share originally-created videos by providing a platform to connect, inform, and inspire others across the globe. We need your help to keep YouTube safe.
