Honor Code

Brainly’s Honor Code is the blueprint for how we uphold high standards of academic integrity at Brainly. We ask our community to support the learning of others by maintaining these standards and ensuring all students can go beyond the answer, together.


Brainly’s Honor Code

For your own learning’s sake, make sure you:

Create your own work

Students should use Brainly to improve their own work. It’s never okay to pass someone else’s words, thoughts, or ideas as off as your own. This includes copying content from other users, websites, or sources and pretending it is their own original work.

Give others credit if you reference their work

Always use quotation marks (“) and give credit by name if you include someone else’s work in your own. You cannot have other users write full essays on your behalf or copy Brainly content without proper attribution, context, or agreement.

Keep from posting tests, quizzes, and assessments

Students are never allowed to post questions directly from tests, quizzes, and assessments, or copy answers found on Brainly during tests, quizzes, and assessments.

Get permission to share content from classroom materials

Only post content from textbooks or course materials if you have explicit permission from the teacher in question.


Anytime our moderators discover the Honor Code has been violated, we work hard to find out what’s going on and why, and resolve the situation based on the seriousness of the violation.
