Dear YouNow Community, 
At YouNow, we take the trust & safety of our users very seriously and invest a lot to ensure that every user feels safe on our platform.
Although most YouNowers use the service as it is intended - to come together and meet people - there will always be exceptions, who wish to bully, abuse, and cause harm to others. We aim to protect the community from such users. As such, our moderation team bans tens of thousands of users from YouNow every month in order to keep YouNow and safe place for you.
Note that we also honor our commitment to our community, and we listen to each and every user who wishes to appeal their suspension or ban through support.younow.com.
It is important to maintain your privacy and security, too, and we wanted to share a few safety tips (which should be kept in mind for social media and Internet safety in general – not just on YouNow!):
Don’t share personal information. We all love YouNow because we can connect with friends from all corners of the world, but sharing personal information publicly (including phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, etc.) can open unwanted communications. We strongly discourage you from sharing this sensitive information with people you do not know.
Don’t click unrecognizable links. In the chat, users may share URLs that link to inappropriate or phishing websites. We ask that you flag the users posting such URLs, and make sure not to click them!
Don’t do anything online that you wouldn’t want your parents seeing. YouNow is a public place, like any other. Parents, friends, teachers, or others who know you might be watching, and so you should behave accordingly.
Remember that everything you do gets recorded. After you end your broadcast, the recorded video lives on your profile for 3 days, or is permanent if it is your most recent broadcast. You do, however, have the ability to remove any video from your profile by navigating to the “broadcasts" tab.
If you do experience inappropriate behavior, bullying, or any other conduct from users that makes you feel unsafe, please utilize the following safety features:
BLOCK the user.
FLAG the user. This is important not only so that the user cannot contact you, but can also be reviewed by a moderator.
CONTACT MODS. Available on YouNow’s website, you can use this feature when you need to report a user, but want to include more information than flagging allows you. Find the “Contact Mods” option as a link below the hashtags on the left hand panel of YouNow.
Our #1 priority is that each and every YouNower has a safe & fun live broadcasting experience. We hope you never need to use the above safety features, but if you do, we wanted to let you know that we have your back!

Sincerely,
YouNow Moderation Team
