Is it okay to get reviews from family/friends?



  • I have a graphic designer friend, brand new to Upwork.

    Friend is trying get their first job. Friend’s mom owns a business and wants to hire them to design a logo. And then the mom would leave (I’m assuming) a positive 5-star review on Friend’s profile.

    Is that against Upwork’s rules? Any risks of Friend getting banned for getting reviews from friends/family?
