How to Report a Profile

The Wattpad community is a safe and positive environment and all Wattpadders are encouraged to share their thoughts and opinions in respectful and appropriate forms. Discussing opinions on works, conversing with others, and developing new ideas together are all great ways to interact on Wattpad. In some cases, however, disputes can occur and may result in users being reported. If you would like to report a user for cyber-bullying, harassment, threats, or impersonation please follow the steps below.
