Reporting a specific chat message is the best way to let us know about a chat you think may be a violation of our Content Policy. First off, if you receive a chat request with a message you’d like to report, don’t select Ignore. (This will make the message go away.) Instead, follow the directions for the device you’re on below.
If you’re on on the iOS or Android app
- First, tap into the chat message.
- If it’s the first time you’ve been contacted by this user, there will be a prompt asking you to accept or ignore their chat request. Tap the More Options link under the two buttons, then select Report. If you’ve already accepted this user’s chat request, tap and hold the message you’d like to report, then select Report message.
If you’re on the web
- Click on the chat request or message to open the full chat.
- Roll over the message then click on the flag icon.
Submitting reports is one way you can look out for yourself and your fellow redditors, so we appreciate your help making Reddit a better, safer place for everyone. Reporting disturbing content can bring up hard emotions or may be triggering in ways you didn’t expect, so if you need support, Reddit has partnered with Crisis Text Line to connect redditors who are in any sort of crisis with trained Crisis Counselors. If you’re inside the U.S., text CHAT to 741741. If you’re outside the U.S., check out other support resources available in your area.
