You should not post other people’s private information unless they’ve provided you with explicit authorization. You may also not threaten to expose people’s private information or encourage others to do so. 

What information is considered private?

Contact information that is not in the public domain such as phone numbers or email addresses;

Mailing addresses, somebody’s physical location and any identifying information of private addresses such as GPS coordinates; 

Identifying documents such as government-issued IDs, social security numbers or national identity numbers that are private in their region;

Financial information such as bank account numbers and credit card information;

Medical records


What about photos?


If you're under the age of 18 and you think a photo or video on VSCO should be removed because it violates your privacy, please report it through the chat window in our Help Center. 

Depending on your age and the country you're reporting from, we might not remove the image unless it violates our Community Guidelines. In those cases, we encourage you to get in touch with the community member who posted the image to request its removal.

If you see an image that is your intellectual property (an image you took), please fill out our DMCA / Copyright form.


If you have deleted images from your VSCO profile or have deactivated your VSCO account but they are still appearing in search engine results, please contact the search engine in question to request the removal of the content.
