Abuse

Cloudflare offers network service solutions including a reverse proxy, pass-through security service, and a content distribution network (CDN). Because Cloudflare is a reverse proxy, our IP addresses appear in WHOIS and DNS records for websites using our services. We do not have access to our customer's content. Cloudflare is not a hosting provider.

We accept the following kinds of reports:
Copyright infringement & DMCA violations
Trademark infringement
Child pornography
Phishing & malware
Violent threats
What can you do?

Cloudflare will forward all abuse reports that appear to be legitimate to the responsible hosting provider and to the website owner. In response to a legitimate abuse report Cloudflare will provide the complainant with the contact information for the responsible hosting provider so they can be contacted directly.

What are we unable to do?

Since Cloudflare is not a hosting provider we do not have the capability to remove content from a website.

How do I report?

If you do choose to file a report with Cloudflare, you’ll want to select the the appropriate category for your report on the reporting form. Please provide a high level of detail in the description of the content, the exact steps needed to access the content, and the location of the content on the page. For reports of a sensitive nature, including nonconsensual pornography, please use the “general” option. We only review reports of URLs resolving to Cloudflare IPs.

What if I’m a law enforcement official?

Law enforcement officials can contact us directly at [email protected]. You must include your badge & case number when contacting us to receive a response. It is a crime to falsely impersonate a law enforcement official.
