To report a Photo

You can read our rules for photos here to make sure a photo should be reported.

Every photo will have an icon that is either a flag or the "three dots" menu. Click to report the photo:




On the app:

1. From the person's profile, click the "three dot" menu icon, then "report"

Note: Reporting a photo will only result in the photo itself being removed if it breaks the rules. If you want to report something highly offensive, please report the profile itself.

How to report someone if you can't find their account


If you no longer see the profile on OkCupid, please let us know and we'll be happy to look into the account further. Include as much information as you can, such as their name, location, age, if they messaged you, if you hid/blocked them, etc. This will help us find them so we can look into it further. 

We do not let people know that they have been reported or who reported them. We also do not tell people specifically why they were banned. We want you to feel safe reporting people to us, so we will not share your information or details with anyone.
