Reddit Account Suspended—Recover It With DoNotPay
Finding your Reddit account suspended can be frustrating. If Reddit is crucial to your social life or your business, every minute counts.
DoNotPay is here to help. Our guide will explain all you need to know about Reddit suspensions and show you how to send an appeal to the platform to lift the suspension off your account. DoNotPay can also help you appeal the suspension with our Unban My Account feature by sending a demand letter to Reddit.
When your Reddit account is suspended, you will receive a notification and the reason for suspension. With a Reddit suspension, you can:
- Log in to your account
- View messages, notifications, and posts
- Communicate with the admin
- Delete/edit your posts and comments
If you have a Reddit suspended account, you will not be able to:
- Submit new posts or comments
- Send messages
- Create subreddits
- Use the advertising system
- Edit Wiki pages
Moderators with suspended Reddit accounts will not be allowed to moderate pages, check moderator mails, or manage subreddit content.
If you violated any of the terms in the Reddit Content Policy, your account will be suspended. Some of the common reasons for a suspension are:
- Violent threats
- Cheating or engaging in content manipulation
- Invasion of privacy
- Posting sexually explicit media or suggestive content involving minors
- Impersonating an individual
- Posting illegal content
- Interfering in the functioning of Reddit
According to Reddit, a suspension is there to inform you that you broke the rules and that your account has been connected to suspicious activities, but you have a chance to correct your behavior.
Reddit suspensions are usually legit, but it could also happen that you are suspended for no reason. There could be an error in the system, or someone could have wrongly reported you. It could also be that your account was hacked and you have been wrongly accused of something that you didn't do. This is when you should get in touch with Reddit to unban your account.
Your Reddit suspension can be temporary or permanent. You can check out the differences between them below:
|Type||Temporary Suspension||Permanent Suspension|
|Reason||You violated the content policy||You violated the content policy, or your account is compromised, and you cannot recover it|
|Duration||A set number of days, determined by the gravity of the violation||Indefinitely|
|Public?||No, only visible to you||Yes, Reddit will post on your page that your account is suspended, and the announcement will be visible to other users|
If you feel that your Reddit (or subreddit) suspension was unjust or incorrect, you can submit an appeal directly to the platform. It’s important to stay calm and professional—but firm.
To send an appeal to Reddit, here’s what you need to do:
- Open the appeals form in your browser
- Type in your username
- Describe why you think you have been wrongly suspended
- Check the content policy statement
- Hit the Submit button
You can also appeal by replying to the suspension notification sent to you.
According to Reddit, they review appeals but do not guarantee the reversal of the suspension. They also do not indicate a timeline on when they will get back to your appeal request.
You may have to wait for ages before you receive a response from Reddit. The good news is that you have DoNotPay as your pocket-sized assistant to appeal your Reddit suspended account.
