The chart shows the number of videos removed by YouTube, by first source of detection (human detection) for the period October 2017-December 2020. Flags from human detection can come from a user or a member of YouTube’s Trusted Flagger program. Trusted Flagger program members include individuals, NGOs, and government agencies that are particularly effective at notifying YouTube of content that violates their Community Guidelines. The chart shows that the highest number of removed videos were first noticed by users (11,051,611 videos), followed by individual trusted flaggers (4,259,003 videos), NGOs (154,982 videos) and government agencies (471 videos).
