Below are common reasons why you could be seeing your Flickr content appear on non-Flickr websites:
- Public permissions - Change your search permissions from public to private.
- Not hidden from search - Opt out of allowing Yahoo or API apps to search or use your content.
- Violated Community Guidelines - Our Community Guidelines state that Flickr posts on other sites be linked back to Flickr. If these were violated, your photos might be visible on another site. You can report those violations here.*
*Note: After investigation, if our Trust & Safety team find that the reported site is abusing our Flickr API to power it, we will terminate their API key to prevent further misuse. If the site is not powered by the Flickr API, the best course of action is to file a DMCA claim directly with the site.
