Create a passcode

Enter a four-digit passcode, then enter it again to confirm it. You need to enter this passocde to change your content restrictions.

Make sure that you remember your passcode because there's no way to recover it. If you forget your passcode, you'll have to delete the Apple Music app from your Android device, then reinstall it to change your content restrictions.

  • Content Restrictions settings don't sync across devices. You must set up Content Restrictions on every device that you want to limit access to explicit content.
