If you're reporting a child's account registered under a false date of birth, and the child’s age is reasonably verifiable as under 13, we will delete the account. You will not receive confirmation of this action, but you should no longer be able to view this child’s profile on the site. Our ability to review and take appropriate action on a report significantly improves with the completeness of the report (ex: URL of the profile).

If the reported child’s age is not reasonably verifiable as under 13, then we may not be able to take action on the account. In this case, if you are not the parent of this child, then we strongly recommend that you encourage a parent to use this form to contact us.
