Reporting content on Spotify


At Spotify we work hard to elevate creative expression and want our community to safely present their authentic selves, but that does not mean that anything goes.

Our long-standing Platform Rules outline what is and isn't allowed on Spotify. We prioritize the review of content that impacts minors, presents a greater risk of offline harm, or may be illegal.

What type of actions are taken against illegal content or content that violates the Platform Rules?

When we find content that violates our Platform Rules or is illegal under local law, we may take a range of actions. These actions may include removing content, restricting distribution, applying content advisory labels and/or demonetisation.

How can someone report content on Spotify?

If you feel that a piece of content may violate our Platform Rules, please report it through our secure reporting form. The content owner will not know who made the report.

To report content that you believe infringes your intellectual property rights or otherwise violates the law, please contact us. Content reported through this form (unless it is being reported for intellectual property reasons) will also be reviewed for Platform Rules violations. More information on Spotify's policy to address intellectual property infringement can be found in our Copyright Policy.

Abuse of our reporting process can lead to restrictions on your ability to submit reports in the future, and repeated violations of the Spotify Terms of Use, including our Platform Rules, may result in your account being suspended or terminated.

Who can report content?

Anyone with an email address can report content on Spotify, even if they do not have a Spotify account. Please note that abuse of our reporting process may restrict your ability to submit requests in the future.

Can content decisions be appealed?

Options for appealing content decisions vary by location, and we will continue to expand our capabilities in the future.

If you disagree with an enforcement decision taken on your content or in response to your report, you may be able to submit an appeal. To do this, please follow the instructions in the notification you may have received from Spotify.

How do I report other problems with the app?

If you find inaccurate information or issues with app functionality, you can report them here. If you're an artist, your label or distributor can help fix problems with your music.
