How to turn off explicit on Alexa

Here are the steps to turn off explicit on Alexa:

  1. Open the Alexa app: Open the Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet.

  2. Go to settings: Tap on the "More" option at the bottom of the screen, then select "Settings" from the menu.

  3. Choose the device: Select the Alexa device you want to turn off explicit on.

  4. Tap on "Music & Podcasts": Scroll down to the "Alexa Preferences" section, then tap on "Music & Podcasts".

  5. Disable explicit language: Under the "Music & Podcasts" section, you should see an option for "Explicit Language Filter". Tap on it to turn off explicit language. This will prevent Alexa from playing songs or podcasts that contain explicit language.

  6. Save changes: Once you have disabled explicit language, tap on the "Save Changes" button to apply the changes to your Alexa device.

Note: Some music services may have their own explicit content filters that you can adjust within the app settings. If you're using a music service like Spotify or Apple Music, you may need to adjust the explicit content filter within the app itself.

In addition, if you have enabled Alexa's voice purchasing feature, you may want to turn on a voice code to prevent unauthorized purchases of explicit content. You can do this by going to the "Voice Purchasing" section within the Alexa app settings and enabling the voice code option.

By following these steps, you can easily turn off explicit on Alexa and ensure that the content played on your device is appropriate for all audiences.

What is Alexa explicit filter

Alexa explicit filter is a feature that allows users to filter out explicit content on their Alexa devices. When this feature is enabled, Alexa will not play any songs, albums, or playlists that contain explicit language or content.

The explicit filter can be turned on or off in the Alexa app settings. By default, the filter is turned off, so Alexa may play explicit content if it's requested. However, users who want to ensure that only clean content is played on their Alexa devices can turn on the filter.

It's important to note that while the explicit filter can help limit the amount of inappropriate content played on Alexa, it's not foolproof. Some explicit content may still slip through, especially if it's not labeled as such by the content provider. Additionally, the filter only works with certain music services that support the feature, so content from other services may still contain explicit language.
