general questions

Just updated iFunny and I already don’t like it. What should I do?

Well, sometimes it takes longer than 30 seconds to come to a conclusion. If you know what I mean ;)

There is too much information on my Activity tab. What can I do?

Time to clean that Activity tab, like you wished you could clean your room, with a few taps. Go to Profile – Settings – Activity Filter and configure everything as you like.

Can I sell products, publishes, or services in iFunny?

We ask that you don’t sell anything within the application. If you want to sell your kidneys, please do so outside of iFunnyland. However, you can give shout-outs, mentions, and references by adding a link or contact information to your profile.

My works don’t show up in the tags I add. Why?

Tag based channels on the main page of the Explore section are strictly moderated, so not everyone gets there (life's not fair, you're right). All the other tags don't receive the memes that violate the Guidelines.

Someone is making fun of me. What should I do?

Well, the best thing you can do is ignore them. Remember what Eleanor Roosevelt said: "No (iFunnyer) one can make you feel inferior without your consent."

This user is spamming my account and spoils all the fun. Can I get rid of him?

Yes you can! All you have to do is open a disturbing profile, tap on the "three dots" icon in the upper right corner and then tap on "Block". Voilà! You are now a strong independent iFunnyer!

I’ve made a big mistake and blocked my favorite user! Can I fix it?

What a shame, you should undo it immediately. Simply open that user’s profile, tap on the "three dots" icon in the upper right corner of the screen and tap on "Unblock".

There is a username that I want that someone else has. Help!

We know it can be frustrating to see a great name being held hostage by a seemingly inactive account. No worries! All usernames are automatically released after 1 year of inactivity. That date is based off of the last time that user logged into their account. If you see a username you would like to have, simply keep an eye on it and once it releases, take it!

privacy

Will the application post any of my information on any social media pages?

We never disclose any of your personal information. We may, however, share some of your memes on other platforms to show off your great work!

I added my phone number to use iFunny Chat, will anyone see it?

No, we will never share your phone number. We only need it to make sure you’re not some secret spy trying to infiltrate iFunny one meme at a time. ;)

how-to

What is a Verified Account?

It’s a badge of honor that we give out to accounts that make original content and whose contributions to the community make iFunny a better place.

What Does it Take to Become Verified?

We look at the following criteria when verifying accounts:

Good for a Laugh > Is their content funny?
Consistency > Are they core users of the app or do they only occasionally contribute?
Originality > Does the account upload their own work or share the works of others?
Known Influencer > Do they have a large fan base on other platforms or IRL?

All of the above play into our highly advanced verification algorithm :)

How Does an Account Get Verified?

The best way is to get intouch with iFunnyChef ™, on the app or on Twitter.

Chef likes to verify accounts on Saturday... so leave a comment on his iFunnyChef ™ profile or send him a Tweet @iFunnyChef ™ with the tag #verifyMe. Good luck!

Is Verification Permanent?

For the most part, yes!

It can be removed if a verified account doesn’t follow the Community Standard Guidelines, in addition to following our basic rules here are the criteria we use to evaluate whether an account should remain verified.

  • No longer being active on the app
  • No longer uploading content
  • Not keeping the theme or originality that the profile was verified for
  • Being toxic or having a negative impact on the community
  • Harassment of others
  • Uploading inappropriate content

This account is hilarious. How do I subscribe?

Simply swipe down to see their Work Summary, click the user’s profile picture to go to their profile, then click the "Subscribe" button. Boom! You’ll now see their latest uploads in your Subscriptions feed!

This account is not that funny anymore. How do I unsubscribe?

You have couple of options:
1: Open your profile and tap on "Subscriptions". You will see a list of users you follow. Tap on the yellow icon next to a person you want to unsubscribe from.
2: Open that person's profile and tap on the "Subscribed" icon. You will see it change to "Subscribe".

I really like this work. How can I save it to my device?

To access sharing options, just tap on the "Share" icon in the bottom right corner of the screen or long tap on the screen and tap on "Save" when viewing a work you liked. The work will be saved to the standard photo gallery of your device.

How do I repub a work?

Just tap on the "Share" icon or long tap on the screen and then tap "Republish".

I accidentally republished a work. Is there a way I can unrepublish it?

Open your profile, find the republished work you want to unrepublish, tap on the "Share" icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and tap on "Republished". The icon will change. Go back to your profile, and voilà!

How can I delete comments?

To delete that angry rant someone posted on your work, tap and hold the comment and then tap "Remove" (or "Delete" if it's your comment).

Can I upload my own videos?

Yes, you can! Simply click on the "Add Meme" icon at the bottom of your screen, then select "Video". You can share your own videos straight from your Gallery (up to 20 seconds/32mb max), or you can share videos by using the URL of the work you’d like to post!

inappropriate content

Do you filter content?

The iFunny team works around the clock to help moderate content so you can enjoy the humor.

Do something about inappropriate content.

We are always improving our filtering so there is less inappropriate content. Thank you for your patience.

A picture is awful! How can I report it?

We encourage you to report content that is unacceptable. All you have to do is tap on the "three dots" icon or long tap on the screen and tap on "Report" (triangle with exclamation mark).

My works don’t get any views. Why?

iFunny has guidelines we should all follow. Make sure you are not violating any rules when you upload content. If you do, your works will not go into Collective or the Tag galleries. Be respectful to others and you will always have an audience.

I think Chef deletes my comments. Why?

Chef doesn’t. Just play by the rules and remember to treat others the way you want to be treated. "Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten."

iFunny Chat

How do I start chatting?

Getting started is easy! Simply click Profile – Chat and select the yellow "Start Messaging" bubble. Enter your phone number to verify you’re really you, and once you receive and enter the SMS code, you’re ready to go!

How do i change who can and cannot chat with me?

Just go into your profile and click the Options icon located in the top right of your screen, then click Settings – Privacy. You have the options of changing who can chat with you!
1: All Users - Anyone can DM you and add you to group chats.
2: Friends Only - Only those users you are subscribed to can DM you and add you to group chats.
3: Nobody - Well … that is self explanatory.

How do I disconnect my phone number?

There is no possibility to remove a phone number from your account completely yet, but we will consider adding such a feature in future. For now, you can type another number in the account you don't want to be linked to your primary phone number, and your number will be released for use on another account.

Someone is sending inappropriate content in chat, what do i do?

There are a couple of options available if another user is sending content that you feel is inappropriate.
1: Block - Just click the profile picture of the user you wish to block. Once on their profile, click the "three dots" on the top right of your screen and select "Block". The user, and their content, will now be hidden from view.
2: Removal - The Admin of a chat can remove any user at any time. Simply click the Chat name at the top of the screen, then click "Members". Scroll thru the list until you see the name of the user you wish to remove, and long press until the "remove from group" option appears. Once you click this, the user is now beaned from that group chat.

featured

How can my work appear in the "Featured" section?

iFunny is a community driven application where users decide which materials are funny by using a "smile" system. Only after that our editors pick the best works at the time and include them in the "Featured" section.
It is more about the quality of the joke than it is about the number of smiles.

Same users get featured over and over again.

Well, that is not true. Over sixty-two thousand users have been featured so far and you have all the chances.

I’m still convinced that 'popular' users are the only ones that ever get featured.

As we’ve said before, there is no such thing as a 'popular' user, you are all popular in our eyes. The Featuring team spends every waking hour searching Collective trying to give every user their first feature, so everyone has an equal shot at getting their work featured.

Can I bribe iFunny Featuring team to get featured?

Absolutely not. We have strong principles. (Unless it is an offer we can’t refuse. Or if you are Joseph Gordon-Levitt).

iFunny Team

How many people work for iFunny?

300. We are just like Spartans (except we are better).
