Actor profile information protections

How does IMDB ensure real information is posted about celebrities? I have an example of a celebrity profile hacked by some stalker that outsmarted IMDB..Does IMDB vet their own editors properly? That celebrity is unable to correct the information! Is there a phone number to address this issue?

Hi Frenchy -

We currently don't provide phone support, you can contact our support team directly through our Contact Form, otherwise, I can help resolve the issue within this community thread.

In addition to using as many sources as we can to verify information, our data goes through consistency checks to ensure it's as accurate and reliable as possible. 

If you have already submitted the applicable data updates through our online form (to remove or modify the incorrect data), post the 18-digit submission reference numbers here and I can investigate.  Otherwise, if you can provide further details regarding the inaccuracies by confirming the relevant name page and what data is incorrect, I can then take a look.

Cheers!

Hi Frenchy -

There is no direct messaging options within this community platform.  If you are still experiencing problems and wish to discuss the matter privately with IMDb staff, the best option is to contact our support team directly through our Contact Form.

Cheers!

One problem is this whole so-called ”celebrity culture”, which often focuses people’s personal lives over the professional ones. When with so-called ”film buffs”, it’s basically the other way around.

In my opinion IMDb should be very cautious with any kind of info relating to birthdays, spouses, ex-spouses, girl/boyfriends, divorces, children, sexual orientation, criminal charges/accusations, etc.

@eboy Well, when it comes to dates of birth (and dates of death), they are pretty cautious when it comes to adding/correcting one, at least for as far as I can tell.

And flings and sexual orientation are not supposed to be listed in a person's bio trivia (https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/names-biographical-data/biographical-data-guidelines/GMT9T242VQADZUQM#biotrivia), so there's that.
