About our App Use Standards

The Robinhood App Use Standards apply to all types of content on Robinhood and govern what is and isn’t allowed on our platform, including customer support interactions. We’ve developed these App Use Standards to help ensure Robinhood continues to be a safe and inclusive environment as we work to democratize finance for all. While we may need to update our App Use Standards occasionally, you can always find the most current version here.

Enforcing our App Use Standards

Our first priority is to maintain the safety of our customers. To that end, Robinhood maintains the right, in its sole discretion, to make determinations as to whether any activity violates our App Use Standards. If we believe that you have engaged in any activity that violates our App Use Standards, we may take a number of actions, based on the severity of the violations. These actions could include, but are not limited to: removing content, issuing warnings, limiting platform access, and removing customers from the Robinhood platform who take repeated or egregious actions against our App Use Standards.

If we have taken corrective action against your account for violating our App Use Standards and you disagree with our determination, you can submit an appeal by sending an email to appeals@robinhood.com.

Robinhood’s App Use Standards are written in alignment with our Terms and Conditions.
