Once you have filled out the initial application form at http://www.freedom.tm you will be able to access the Freedom! dashboard. In the main page, at https://www.freedom.tm/dashboard, you will see a list of channels you requested partnership for.
Every channel is manually reviewed by our Quality Control team. Please allows us a few days to do so. During this process you will be able to see the status of your request. Once that review is done, you will get either a positive or negative review.
Positive channel review
If your channel is approved, you will have access to the private Freedom! chat by clicking on the green button next to your channel on the Freedom! dashboard welcome page. In this chat you will be able to request the invitation and we will guide you step by step until your channel has completed the partnership process.
Before opening the chat, please make sure you have ready the following information:
- Screenshot of your YouTube Dashboard page (https://www.youtube.com/dashboard)
- Screenshot of your YouTube Features page (https://www.youtube.com/features)
By having this ready to send us in the chat, you will be able to complete the process a lot faster.
Note: There are many tools that will let you take a screenshot, however, if you would like a free, simple and fast way to share a screenshot, without having to send the actual image file, you may want to consider free tools such as https://gyazo.com.
Negative channel review
If your channel is denied for partnership, usually due to potential copyright or spam violations of YouTube policies, you will get notified and the dashboard will mention the issue(s) so that you have a chance to make the necessary corrections.
As a security measure and to prevent abuse, you will only be able to request another review 24 hours later, up to a total of 3. Please make sure to review all your channel’s content and ensure that you are following YouTube’s terms of service before you request another review.
Among other issues, a negative review can be the result of:
- Potential copyright problems in content
- Potential spam violations (tags in description, adf.ly / sh.st / bc.vc links, duplicated text in video description,…)
Please make sure you review the information in the following links:

Invitation requested but not received
Even though we may have reached the point in which we have sent you the invitation, YouTube can still deny your request. Below are some of the most common issues:
- Channel monetization is disabled
- You are not in a country where the YouTube Partner Program (YPP) is available
- Fan funding is enabled
- You are in a partnership with another network
Make sure none of the above can be an issue before requesting the invitation, otherwise YouTube may deny the request.
