Community Guidelines

Our Community Guidelines are designed to ensure our community stays protected. They set out what’s allowed and not allowed on the Habibi app, and apply to all users and all types of content on our platform, including photos, videos, text messages, and audio messages.

Spam & deceptive practices

  • Pretending to be someone you are not — whether it’s one of your colleagues, a celebrity, or a friend — or trying to mislead others about who you are is not allowed.
  • DO NOT create or run an account that isn’t real, create more than one account, or create new accounts with the intent of violating these guidelines.
  • Links that send users to websites featuring content that violates our Community Guidelines are not allowed on Habibi. We also don’t allow content where the main purpose is to trick others into leaving Habibi for another app
  • Habibi doesn’t allow spam, scams, or other deceptive practices that take advantage of the Habibi users in any way.
  • Asking people to participate in cash gifting or other payment systems is not allowed.

 

Hate Speech, Harassment and criticism

  • Habibi is not the place for people to hurt, insult, or disrespect individuals based on their race, gender, religion, ethnicity, culture, age, disability, nationality, or immigration status. To keep Habibi a positive, motivating place, we will restrict the sharing of insulting content or remove it entirely.
  • Shaming people for their bodies, appearances, or social status is not allowed.
  • Do not participate in targeted bullying or harassment of another user, or encourage others to do so.

 

Sensitive content

  • Pornography has no place on Habibi. We prohibit the sharing of mature and explicit sexual content, such as images of nudity where the poses, camera angles, or props suggest sexual intent.
  • Promoting or recruiting for commercial sexual services, prostitution, or other non-consensual sexual activities is strictly prohibited and will result in your Habibi account being deleted.

 

Violent or dangerous content

  • Habibi does not allow content that promotes dangerous or illegal activities that may result in serious physical harm or death.
  • Habibi does not allow violent or disturbing content that is meant to scare or disgust viewers, or content that encourages people to perform violent or criminal acts.
  • Habibi does not allow content that honors, promotes, or supports violent criminal/terrorist groups. These groups are strictly prohibited from using Habibi for any reason, including recruitment.

 

Minors

  • Habibi demands that you be at least 18 years old to join the app. As a result, photos of children are not allowed. If you want to post pictures of your own children, make sure you are included in the picture as well. Please report any profile that involves an unaccompanied child, promotes harm to a minor, or portrays a minor in a sexual or provocative manner.
  • Habibi does not allow content that is harmful to minors’ mental or physical well-being. A minor is anyone who is under the legal age of majority, which in most countries is anyone under the age of 18.
