Spotify includes explicit content because we offer it how the artist intends it to be heard.
Look out for EXPLICIT or E tags on any releases.
Note: We can’t tag all explicit content because it depends on information we get from rights-holders.
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.
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.
- Log in to your Premium Family page.
- Click on the member you’d like to allow or block content for.
- Switch Remove explicit content on or off .
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.
