Turn off explicit content in Apple Music on Android

You can turn off access to music with explicit content (items with a Parental Advisory Label) in the Apple Music app.

  1. Open the Apple Music app on your Android device.
  2. Tap the menu icon   in the upper-left corner, then tap Settings.
  3. Scroll to Allow Explicit Content, and turn it off.
  4. Enter a 4 digit PIN, and tap OK to confirm it.
    Entering a PIN prevents anyone from making changes to this setting without your approval. Make sure that you remember your PIN, because you must enter it when you want to turn explicit content back on. If you can’t remember your PIN, there's no way to recover it. To make changes, you have to delete Apple Music from your phone, then reinstall it.

After you turn Allow Explicit Content off, songs and albums that are marked as explicit might show up in search results or on one of the tabs in Apple Music, but you can't play them. Radio will then also play only clean versions of songs.
