Policies and Safety

Millions of users respect that trust and we trust you to be responsible too. Following the guidelines below helps to keep the Virtual Classroom fun and enjoyable for everyone.

Our staff carefully reviews flagged content and determine whether there’s a violation of our Class Rules.
Here are some common-sense rules that'll help you steer clear of trouble. Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don't try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around the guidelines—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created.
Nudity or sexual content The Virtual Classroom is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your video, even if it's a video of yourself, don't post it on the Virtual Classroom. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation.
Harmful or dangerous content Don't post videos that encourage others to do things that might cause them to get badly hurt, especially kids. Videos showing such harmful or dangerous acts may get age-restricted or removed depending on their severity.
Hateful content Our products are platforms for free expression and education. But we don't support content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, caste, sexual orientation, or gender identity, or content that incites hatred on the basis of these core characteristics.
Violent or graphic content It's not okay to post violent or gory content that's primarily intended to be shocking, sensational, or gratuitous. If posting graphic content in a news or documentary context, please be mindful to provide enough information to help people understand what's going on in the video. Don't encourage others to commit specific acts of violence.
Harassment and cyberbullying It’s not ok to post abusive videos and comments on The Virtual Classroom. If harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and may be removed. In other cases, users may be mildly annoying or petty and should be ignored.
Spam, misleading metadata, and scams Everyone hates spam. Don't create misleading descriptions, tags, titles, or thumbnails in order to increase views. It's not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments and private messages.
