To support our efforts to make MV a safe space for all users, external links / URLs and text mentions to other adult sites are not permitted.
MV Live: We do NOT permit external links / URLs and text mentions to other sites on MV Live under any circumstances.
Content: Watermarks in vids uploaded from February 20, 2021 onward that display links to other adult sites are also not permitted. ManyVids cannot risk hosting links to other websites that may not hold the same standards for Trust & Safety as we do. As social media platforms are designed for self-expression, Creators are permitted to link their X and their Instagram in their Social Media settings.
Please note: As of May 18th, 2021 we are enforcing an external link policy. We no longer permit any non-ManyVids URLs or links in the following on the platform, including but not limited to:
- About Me
- Feed (free) Posts
The MV Team will take action to remove any mentions of external links from the site.
