At Wattpad, our vision is to entertain and connect the world through stories. Our community lies at the heart of this vision; our writers use Wattpad as a place to nurture and unleash their creativity, readers all over the world use Wattpad to find stories that resonate with them, and a wide variety of communities have found their home at Wattpad. We pride ourselves as being a place where everyone can feel like they belong - be that through stories, or the communities they belong to.

A key part of creating this sense of belonging is our effort to build a safe and positive environment on Wattpad. This has been a continuous process over the years, and we're dedicated to finding ways to improve the mechanisms we use to keep our community safe.

Today, we're excited to announce a new and improved process to help us moderate images on Wattpad. Using a combination of technology and human moderation, we're building a new layer of protection to help us find and remove images that violate our Content Guidelines. Our aim is to better enforce our Content Guidelines and ensure Wattpad remains one of the safest spaces online, while giving you as much freedom to continue to express your creativity and unique voice. To learn more about our new image moderation process, check out our FAQ on Image Moderation.

We'll be rolling out these changes to all of the Wattpad Community over the next few months. Releasing these changes over a period of time will allow us to learn and make improvements to our new process so we can more effectively moderate images on Wattpad. For now, we encourage you all to read our Content Guidelines and review any images you've uploaded to make sure they follow our guidelines. Additionally, if you happen to find images on Wattpad that may violate our Content Guidelines, please feel free to report them through our Help Center. With your help, we can continue to build a safe and positive environment for everyone.

We look forward to sharing more updates around keeping our community safe in the coming months!

Your friends at Wattpad HQ.
