Many of you have shared your concerns with us over the past few days about the Momo Challenge--we’ve been paying close attention to these reports. After much review, we’ve seen no recent evidence of videos promoting the Momo Challenge on YouTube. Videos encouraging harmful and dangerous challenges are clearly against our policies, the Momo challenge included. Despite press reports of this challenge surfacing, we haven’t had any recent links flagged or shared with us from YouTube that violate our Community Guidelines.

It’s important to note that we do allow creators to discuss, report, or educate people on the Momo challenge/character on YouTube. We’ve seen screenshots of videos and/or thumbnails with this character in them. To clarify, it is not against our policies to include the image of the Momo character on YouTube; that being said, this image is not allowed on the YouTube Kids app and we’re putting safeguards in place to exclude it from content on YouTube Kids.

If you see someone promoting any challenge with an inherent risk or harm, please flag it to us immediately.

This is such BS! How about all the kids who were asked if they have seen this character and all answers were YES! Its sad to know YouTube wouldn't take this more serious and out their all to stop it but chose to do nothing just so they don't lose people but what about innocent children who get brainwashed or may loose themselves or others!!! There are numerous of my own friends who asked their children about it and answers where yes and actually witnessed it ! This is unbelievable !

When are you guys going to work on the pedophilia ring that is taking place in the comments section on the content containing minor children? Time stamping, child porn trade, and illicit comments aren’t enough? Lets look into this please.
