We believe in fostering a platform that is as inclusive as it is inspiring.

Communication: Public Conversations
Pixilart refrains from offering any private message features. All conversations are publicly viewable. Content, even if deleted, may be recovered through the Support team. Monitoring your child's viewed content is recommended.
Safety Measures: Anti-Swear Filters
Swear words are replaced with dashes by default. A user attempting to swear will see it, however, no other users will be able to view the offensive term. Automated systems report inappropriate language usage to our team.
Every drawing submitted is evaluated before public display. Automated and manual checks ensure age-appropriate content. Sketches failing these checks are made private and visible solely to the creator.
Our systems scan uploaded pictures to detect unsuitable content or disallowed text. Users found uploading unsuitable content will lose their uploading permissions and will be alerted to our team.
User Protection: Blocking and Reporting
