What happens when you report a video on YouTube? When something is reported, it’s not automatically taken down. Reported content is reviewed along the following guidelines: Content that violates our Community Guidelines is removed from YouTube. Content that may not be appropriate for younger audiences may be age-restricted.
How many reports does it take to delete a YouTube video? A YouTube channel is terminated if it accrues three Community Guidelines strikes in 90 days, has a single case of severe abuse (such as predatory behavior), or is determined to be wholly dedicated to violating our guidelines (as is often the case with spam accounts).
Will someone know if I report their video on YouTube? We rely on YouTube community members to report or flag content that they find inappropriate. Reporting content is anonymous, so other users can’t tell who made the report. When something is reported, it’s not automatically taken down.
How long does it take for YouTube to take down a reported video? A YouTube staff member will review the video and the user’s channel within 24 hours of your submission. If the complaint is valid, YouTube will remove the video and potentially penalize the user.
