How to Report a Facebook Photo or Video that Violates the Privacy of Your Child

Did someone post a photo of your child on Facebook without your permission? Would you like to see it taken down?

If asking the individual to remove it results in little luck, Facebook can help if it's an image of your child aged under 13. Just fill out this form.

Reporting Photos & Videos That Violate Your Privacy Rights

Facebook provides people with ways to report photos and videos that they believe to be in violation of their privacy rights. We'll remove photos and videos that you report as unauthorized if this is required by relevant privacy laws in your country, as long as the reported content involves you, your child (under 13) or another person for whom you are the legal representative or guardian. Photos or videos involving anyone else will need to be reported by the individual themselves.

I want to report a photo or video that violates the privacy of my child.

  • If your child is under 13: If you'd like to request the removal of an image of your child aged under 13, please fill out this form.

  • If your child is between 13 and 17 years old: While we understand your concern as a parent, unfortunately we can’t take action on behalf of your child if they are over 13, unless they are mentally or physically unable to report this to us themselves. We encourage you to talk to your teen about this issue and help them submit their own request to have this content removed. You can learn more about keeping your kids safe on Facebook by visiting our Safety Center.

Facebook also gives image privacy rights guidance on how to report a photo or video that violates the privacy of someone who's sick, hospitalized or otherwise incapacitated, as well as if you don't like an image you've been tagged in.

Rock those privacy rights!
