Report workspace content to Slack

Slack’s Main services agreement, User terms of service and Acceptable use policy (‘Terms’) prohibit sharing certain types of content, including illegal content. Prohibited content will be deleted or otherwise managed in accordance with applicable law. Violations of Slack’s Terms may also result in the deletion of a workspace or account. If you believe that prohibited content has been shared in your workspace, you can report it directly to Slack.

Note: To request deletion of personal data or for help with other workspace issues, get in touch with your Workspace primary owner.

What to expect

If you're located in a country or region covered by the European Union's Digital Services Act, you’ll receive an email confirmation once your report has been submitted, and we’ll provide an update after we’ve reviewed your submission. If you have any questions during the process, you can reply to your confirmation email.

If Slack takes action on the content that you’ve reported, we are legally required to notify the author of that content. We’ll tell them the reason for the action and may provide general information including the workspace name, the time stamp, the content that was submitted, etc. We will not disclose your identity unless strictly necessary, such as in cases of infringement of intellectual property rights. 

We also review reports from users located outside of the European Union and will take action, where appropriate, consistent with applicable law and our terms and policies.
