Turn off explicit content in Apple Music on Android

You can restrict access to explicit music and specific ratings of video content in the Apple Music app.

Turn off access to music with explicit content

  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 the Allowed Content section, then tap Allow Explicit Content to turn it off.
  4. Enter a four-digit passcode, and tap OK to confirm it.
    Entering a passcode prevents anyone from making changes to this setting without your approval. Make sure that you remember your passcode, because you must enter it when you want to turn explicit content back on. If you can’t remember your passcode, 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.

Set restrictions on movies and TV shows

  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 the Allowed Content section, then tap Movies or TV Shows, depending on which you want to restrict.
  4. Enter a four-digit passcode.
    Entering a passcode prevents anyone from making changes to this setting without your approval. Make sure that you remember your passcode, because you must enter it when you want to turn explicit content back on. If you can’t remember your passcode, there's no way to recover it. If you forget your passcode, you have to delete Apple Music from your phone, then reinstall it to make changes.
  5. Choose a movie or TV show rating. For example, if you want to restrict access to only PG-rated movies, choose PG. Choose Don't Allow Movies or Don't Allow TV Shows to turn off access to all movies or TV Shows.

After you restrict access to movies or TV shows, content with restricted ratings might show up in search results or in one of the tabs in Apple Music, but you can't play it.
