If you think a channel is sharing problematic content or spam, you can report them or report specific updates.

- As a follower, report from the channel: Tap > Report.
Report a specific written update, photo, or video on a channel
- Long press the written update or media you want to report and select Report. If you’re a follower, you can also check the box to unfollow the channel.
For more details on how we keep channels safe, read the Channels Guidelines. Please be aware that a user report of conduct in violation of our Channels Terms of Service won't necessarily result in us taking action in or banning the channel or channel owners or admins.
- If you report a channel, you won’t be notified if it’s been banned or under review.
- You’ll remain anonymous, even if you’re a follower of the channel.
