Explicit Content filter

Katerina
21,573 Views

 

It's great to hear music as the artist intended it to be heard, so this means Spotify can sometimes include explicit content.

 

We recommend looking out for the EXPLICIT tag on any releases (E on the web player).


Note: Our explicit content tags are applied based on information we receive from rights-holders. This means we can’t guarantee all explicit content is marked as such. 


Explicit content filter 

 

For: Mobile and tablet

 

Filter out content labelled as explicit with these steps:

  1. Tap on your profile picture
  2. Tap Settings and Privacy
  3. Tap Content and display
  4. Locate the Restrict Explicit Content setting and toggle it on
  5. Anything with an explicit tag will now be grayed out. You won't be able to play it and it will be automatically skipped in playlists.

For: Desktop 

 

  1. Click on your profile picture in the top-right and select Settings.
  2. Under Explicit Content, switch Allow playback of explicit-rated content off.

Anything with an explicit tag will now be grayed out. You won't be able to play it and it will be automatically skipped in playlists.

 

Note: Explicit content settings don’t apply if you use Spotify Connect to play to another device. 



Premium Family explicit filter 

 

If you manage a Premium Family plan, you can allow or block anything with an explicit tag for other members of the plan.

  1. Log in to your Premium Family page.
  2. Click on the member you’d like to filter content for.
  3. Switch Remove explicit content on.



Note:
 Content we identify as explicit is based on information we receive from rights-holders, so we can’t guarantee that no explicit content will play with this setting.

For full information on this, and for more on finding clean versions we'd recommend check this Support article.
