BeReal is about discovery. We are proud to offer a platform that empowers users like you to share a glimpse into your real life and discover that of your friends. We want BeReal to be a place where our users can have fun and express themselves while feeling safe. We developed our community standards to help ensure you, and all our users, use our services safely. We care for you. 


In short

At BeReal, we value authenticity, spontaneity, and kindness. As a general rule, we require the content you post on the App to be true to yourself, respectful to others, and lawful. If you feel your rights are not being respected, or that another user is behaving inappropriately, please let us know.


In detail

Authenticity

You must only use content owned by you when posting. Your daily BeReal, RealMojis, profile picture must depict yourself. You must not use falsified images, other people’s pictures, or misleading pictures to identify yourself.

Pay attention to other people appearing in the content you publish. Make sure anyone appearing on your BeReal agrees before posting, whether they are a user of the App or not. Respect their copyright.

One person = one account. You cannot share an account.

Do not use the App if you are under 13. We require your birthdate during the account creation process to determine whether you can use the App, which can change depending on your country of residence. 


Respect

We have a zero-tolerance policy against all inappropriate behavior toward our users. If you come across inappropriate behavior, let us know.
