Turning on the explicit filter in spotify app

Turning on the explicit filter in spotify app

Hi. It's great to be back in the community. I have something to ask. I like all kinds of music, and so does my mom. We'll pretty much listen to anything we want!! Unfortenely, she has a rule we're I can't play explicit tagged music on my Spotify, and I end up playing the family-friendly NOW Hits or Wal-Mart radio. I'm getting really tired of this two playlists and I still want to the same stuff, without my Mom making change the song or put it on a different playlist. So here's my question. How do I turn off the explicit music on Spotify so my mom can't complain about it in her car?









Samsung Galaxy J3 Luna Pro


Operating System

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

Hey @LoneLycanroc22.


Thanks for reaching out to us! We'll be happy to help you out here 🙂


It's simple - just follow these steps:

  • Open the Spotify app on Android
  • Tap on the Home tab (bottom left)
  • Tap the cog wheel (top-right corner) - this will take you to the Settings menu
  • Scroll down until you find the Allow Explicit Content option and make sure it's toggled on

This will ensure that you won't hear any explicit songs when playing music on Spotify.


Hope that helps! Give us a shout if you still need help with this 😉
