Pipe is a global community, and we're committed to creating an environment where diversity and inclusion thrive. We're into users who play nice and treat others with respect. We're not into users who discriminate, spread hate, or engage in other forms of toxic behavior. These guidelines exist to let you express yourself freely while also helping us maintain the safe, authentic, and accepting environment we strive to cultivate. Any violation of these guidelines may result in the removal of prohibited content or a permanent ban from Pipe.

Treat other Pipe users with respect.

We have a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination, harassment, and abusive behavior. We want you to be yourself, but not at the expense of someone else. Anyone found bullying, threatening, or defaming another user will be banned.

We will also remove any discriminatory statements displayed on profiles. You're free to express your preferences, but we'd rather hear about what you're into, not what you aren't.

If you see someone breaking the rules, please report them using the [block/report icon] button found in the upper right corner of their profile, and we'll take it from there. You may also encounter people on the app who upset or offend you without necessarily violating our guidelines. In those instances we recommend using the block feature, which will prevent you and the other user from seeing each other or having future contact.

Make your safety a priority.

Your safety, both on and offline, is important to us.

Pipe will never ask you for personal details like your password or credit card information. We're all for getting to know you, but please protect yourself by keeping this information private.

In the interest of safety, we will also remove any sensitive personal information displayed publicly, such as phone numbers and addresses. Profiles displaying this information may be banned.

Keep your profile photos appropriate for everyone's viewing pleasure.

We try to be as transparent as possible with our guidelines so that you can get your photo approved quickly and start connecting.

Not allowed:


Obey the law.

No, seriously-- if something is illegal offline, don't do it on Pipe. Mentions and/or photos of drugs and drug paraphernalia (including emoji) are not allowed.

Profiles advertising sexual services (including escort or massage services) will be banned.

Photos and/or mentions of violence and weapons will be removed.

Minors under the age of 18 aren't allowed on Pipe. Please use the in-app tool to report any underage user who may be improperly using the app.

Be authentic.

Be yourself on the app, not someone else. Any profiles impersonating other people, including celebrities, will be banned. If you believe someone is impersonating you or someone you know, please report the user in-app.

Copyrighted photos and illustrations will be removed, and advertising is strictly prohibited on user profiles.

Spamming is also a no-go. Attempting to solicit another user's personal information or prompting users to visit outside links will get you banned from Pipe faster than you can say "hey."

Have fun.

Finally, don't overthink it—these common sense guidelines are here to keep Pipe safe, authentic, and welcoming for everyone. When in doubt, just play nice and you'll be good to go.
