URL Squatting / Impersonating People or Brands

Impersonating someone else on Anchor is against our terms of service, and the same goes for custom URLs. If we receive a report that you're squatting on someone's (proven) brand name or using someone else's name, and determine that you are impersonating them, we have the right to return that URL to its rightful owner and revert your URL to the default.

If someone is using your name or brand name for their custom URL and you'd like to claim it for your own podcast, feel free to get in touch with us ( and we'll be happy to help.
