Hateful Content, Terrorism, and Violent Extremism

Not Eligible for Recommendation:

Any Hateful Content, Terrorism, and Violent Extremism that is prohibited in our Community Guidelines is prohibited anywhere on Snapchat. For content to be eligible for recommendation to a wider audience, it must not contain:

Content from, or promoting, Terrorist organizations, violent extremists, or hate groups

Such content is prohibited in our Community Guidelines, which means it is also prohibited in these Content Guidelines.

Hate speech

Our Community Guidelines prohibit content that demeans, defames, or promotes discrimination or violence on the basis of race, color, caste, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or veteran status, immigration status, socio-economic status, age, weight or pregnancy status. These Content Guidelines go further to prohibit content that is ambiguously demeaning to any of the protected categories listed above. If it is unclear whether content is intended as a “dog whistle” for discriminatory beliefs, we err on the side of not promoting such content.
