If a user sees something harmful or inappropriate, they can use the reporting tools. Users are then told that ‘you have reported successfully’. This feature offers zero opportunity to describe the reason for reporting. The user who has been reported could also be operating from a desktop and not signed in, so there is little to no accountability for those who break the platforms community guidelines.
Users can also report a profile. Users are asked what was inappropriate and given four options: Underage, Inappropriate Content, Spam and No Reason. Users are then thanked for their reporting.
Users can block profiles. This will remove any of the history you and that account may have had.
Users can turn off features such as ‘Knock Knock’ as well as hide their ‘Online Status’.
