What happens when I report a story?

All reported stories are reviewed before the appropriate action is taken. Sometimes we will request more information to ensure we take the proper action after confirming the violation. If a story violates Wattpad’s Content Guidelines or Terms of Service, it will be removed.

Please also note that all reports remain anonymous.
