[All Platforms][NOW] Child Safety Mode

Earlier today I was on a family trip to town, my niece, who is 6 years old, and I were listening to Disney's Tangled 'Mother Knows Best' on a car journey to the centre of town, when an explicit song called 'Mother Knows Best' by Big Jay Okerson automatically played. Horrified I tried to switch off the speaker and change playlists immediately but all too late for the words "big titties, cute face" and "you're cute lets f***" started to blast from the stereo. It was all too late to play down the scenario that she had heard these fateful words as what followed was an extremely awkward conversation consisting of "what are titties?" and "what is a f***?".

I am appalled that this has happened, not least because it was in front of my niece, but because we were listening to a perfectly innocent Disney song prior and had no desire to listen to such crudeness. There should be an introduction of disabling explicit songs so that parents are able to let their children listen to music without having to worry about this happening, such as a child safety mode.

Please understand that were it not for my niece listening to Spotify, she would not have learnt of such vulgar language for some time, and it is due to this that I am writing to you, to make sure it does not happen to other people with children.
