Facebook is a great way to share photos with friends and family. You can post pictures of your own family, outings or just about anything that interests you; however, you want to make sure you are safeguarding your family as much as possible. There may come a time when someone else will post a picture of your child without your permission. How do you report that your child's picture has been used on Facebook without your permission? You can read the steps below on how to report the violation, or you can contact Facebook customer support here.
Facebook has protocols in place to help protect the privacy and security of children. To make a Facebook report that your child's picture has been used without your permission, follow these steps:
Click on the link for the form to complete for a child under 13 and follow the prompts on the screen. You will need to include the following:
For children 13 to 17 years old, parents cannot submit a request on the child's behalf. The child would have to make the request to Facebook unless the child is mentally or physically unable to make the report on their own behalf. Parents can talk to their teens about internet safety, encourage them to make a report and assist them in reporting the violation on their own.
Once the report has been submitted, Facebook will work to remove the photo or will provide you with a notice of why they didn't remove it from the other person's page.
Protecting your child's privacy and overall safety is a concern for all parents. Facebook has tools in place to help parents keep their children secure while enjoying the features of its social media platform. When you notice someone has shared your child's photo without your permission, you do have options and can take steps to have the photo removed from the person's page. For more information, contact Facebook here.
