Explicit content

Spotify includes explicit content because we offer it how the artist intends it to be heard.

For under 19s

To meet local legal requirements, we restrict certain explicit content if you’re under 19.

For over 19s

If you’re over 19, you can confirm your age to listen to any restricted content.

You’ll get a notification when you try to play a 19+ song. Just tap CONTINUE and follow the instructions.

Recognizing explicit content

Look out for the 19 icon on any releases.

Note: We tag explicit content depending on information we receive from rights-holders.

To report a song, podcast, or audiobook that isn't tagged correctly, contact us.

Filter explicit content

Pick your device to allow or block anything with explicit tags.

When explicit content is switched off, anything with an explicit tag is grayed out. You can’t play it, and it’s automatically skipped.

Note: If you’re using Spotify Connect to control another device, changes to explicit content settings apply when you play something next.

Finding clean versions

You can check for clean versions of anything with an explicit tag.

Note: Some explicit releases may not have a clean version.
