[All Platforms] Parental Controls

I love this service. My wife and I are both premium subscribers. I really hate being tied down to an archaic service like iTunes, but for my kids, I really have no choice. I would happily pay for more premium subscriptions for my kids to have their own Spotify accounts if there was a way I could make sure explicit songs are blocked. I dont care if this is a free feature, I am happy to pay for it. Until it exists or my kids get a lot older, its money you are leaving on the table Spotify. I have to think I am not the only parent who would be happy to pay for this. Seems easy enough to implement, so why not make it another reason to go premium?

Hey everyone!

 

Thanks for adding your feeback about bringing parental controls to Spotify. We also think it's a great idea and we're looking into it further. We've changed this idea to 'Under Consideration' and soon as we have any further updates we'll keep you posted. If you haven't done so already, please keep adding your votes above.

 

Thanks!

So you've got Dev resource to build a "stranger things" mode, but not an explicit filter?? #priorities

One year later and nothing

Just found the “after dark” podcasts by accident on Spotify. These should not be on Spotify with no parental filters! Completely inappropriate content for a family service. I’m concerned my kids may already have accessed this content - have no way of knowing whether they have or not and no way of blocking it. Really disappointed!

It has been a year since the last post on this. Any updates on adding parental controls to Spotify. I have a Premium family account.

When I put the bday make sure to put 12 or 13 forgot the age but it will
filter out a lot of inappropriate music.

My kids love music and we have a Premium for Families subscription, but I don't want to introduce them to Spotify because of all the explicit content they could get into.

 

Here's a petition to help this along!

I have the family plan and my children have their own log in, now I found out the other day that I can not block explicit songs from their use! With all the technology today, if you can’t find away to fix this issue then you will loose a lot of customer! I have been a customer for 4 years and have 4 children, which means you have gotten a ton f money from me. This issue needs to get resolved.

Spotify **bleep** is the problem here?  When can we get the ability to filter content for our kids?

They think its such a good idea that 12 months later Spotify has done absoluetly nothing about it! Unbelieveable, maybe we need to take this to an MP and get some proper pressure put on the organisation.
