Sexually Inappropriate Content & Behaviour Policy

We work hard to keep Depop a safe and inclusive space for users to buy & sell unique fashion. We do not allow users to share content or engage in behaviour that is not appropriate for all members of our community, including the use of sexualised language, sharing explicit content or any other type of adult materials, or behaviour that may put other users at risk of harm.

Depop will act on any inappropriate and/or sexualised content or behaviour that contravenes our Community Guidelines. This includes content or behaviour on listings, in imagery, in direct messages or comments, or any other part of the app.

Prohibited content & behaviour includes, but is not limited to:

  • Advertising, requesting, offering or accepting the sale of sexual services or imagery
  • Commenting on the sexual or physical attractiveness of another user, including unwanted and/or unsolicited compliments
  • Engaging in sexualised conversations or discussions
  • Inappropriate contact with or conduct toward minors (or those perceived to be minors), including grooming or attempting to groom minors
  • Making inappropriate, sexualised requests of other users
  • Repeatedly contacting another user via unwanted, unsolicited messages or comments for non-transactional purposes

  • Making inappropriate or suggestive comments or approaches toward other users
