Community Guidelines

Welcome to the Friendly community. Always be kind and respectful to others or your account and profile will be subject to termination. We want our users to express themselves freely as long as it doesn’t offend others. Think before you act and abide by our community guidelines both online and offline.

Below is a list of our community policies. If you violate any of these policies, you might be banned from Friendly. Always report any behavior that violates our policies, and read up on our Safety Tips.

 

What is not allowed on the Friendly App?

 

  • Nudity/Sexual Content

    No nudity or sexually explicit content. This is an app intended to find friends and therefore there should be no sexual activity or requests for “hookups”.

 

  • Harassment

    Do not engage, or encourage others to engage, in any targeted abuse or harassment against any other user. Reports of stalking, threats, bullying, or intimidation, are taken very seriously and law enforcement may be contacted.

 

  • Violence and Physical Harm

    We do not tolerate violent, graphic, gory content, content that advocates for or glorified suicide or self-harm, or any actions or content that advocate for or threaten violence of any sort, including threatening or promoting terrorism. Physical assault, coercion, and any acts of violence are strictly prohibited.

 

  • Hate Speech

    Any content that promotes, advocates for, or condones racism, bigotry, hatred, or violence against individuals or groups based on factors like (but not limited to) race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, disability, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity is not allowed.

 

  • Private Information

    Don’t publicly broadcast any private information, yours or anyone else’s. This includes social security numbers, passports, passwords, financial information or unlisted contact information, such as phone numbers, email addresses, home/work address.

 

  • Spam/Impersonation

    Don’t be fake. Don’t use Friendly to drive people to external websites via a link or otherwise. This will lead to immediate termination of your account. Do not impersonate, or otherwise misrepresent affiliation, connection or association with, any person or entity.

 

  • Promotion or Solicitation

    Soliciting other users is prohibited on Friendly. Do not advertise your event or business, non-profit, political campaign, contest, or to conduct research, we may delete your account.

 

  • Prostitution and Trafficking

    Promoting or advocating for commercial sexual services, human trafficking or other non-consensual sexual acts is strictly prohibited and will result in your account being banned from Friendly

 

  • Scamming

    Friendly has a zero-tolerance policy on predatory behavior of any kind. Anyone attempting to get other users’ private information for fraudulent or illegal activity may be banned. Any user caught sharing their own financial account information (PayPal, Venmo, etc.) for the purpose of receiving money from other users may also be banned from Friendly

 

  • Minors

    You must be 18 years of age or older to use Friendly. As such, we do not allow images of unaccompanied minors. If you want to post photos of your children, please make sure that you are in the photo as well. If you see a profile that includes an unaccompanied minor, encourages harm to a minor, or depicts a minor in a sexual or suggestive way, please report it immediately.

 

  • Copyright and Trademark Infringement

    Do not post any work that is copyrighted or trademarked by others, unless you have a legal right to do so.

 

  • Illegal Usage

    Don’t use Friendly to do anything illegal. Always comply with the laws in your state/province and country.

 

  • One Account/Profile Per Person

    Don’t create multiple accounts, or joint accounts with friends or family. We may add these features in the future to allow you do accomplish this but currently only one profile per person is permitted.
