Thanks for your post, @Deeptissuelmt!

I checked in with our Support team and it looks like you're using an Android device. 

I moved your post to keep the community tidy.

Explicit Filter:

You can set the explicit filter either on the web or from your Android device.

Enabling this filter will limit Pandora to playing music that could play on daytime broadcast radio. Note that this can only be applied to the entire account and not specific stations. Also, it doesn't apply to podcasts. You can identify podcasts with explicit language by a red "E" label in the episode title.

To set the filter on your Android device, first open the Pandora app and go to the Profile tab. Next tap on the Settings gear and then Account.

Once you are in the account screen, you can change the Allow Explicit Content to off to filter explicit content (toggle on if you wish to allow explicit content).

Once set, this will restrict explicit content for that account on all devices.

Hope this helps!

Is there a way to restrict explicit content only on certain of my stations?

Or is it only an all-or-nothing setting?

@DavidAUM Unfortunately, there isn't currently a way to set the Explicit Filter on a per-station basis. 

However, feel free to create a Feature Request for your suggestion here

Hope we continue to see you around the community! 🎧

I've had my explicit content set to off for quite a while, yet it still plays explicit songs. What's the fix?

Hi there, @frnbwmn. 👋

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your explicit filter.

I've reported your issue to our User Support team. A specialist will be in touch with you via email to see what's happening with your account and filter.

Thanks so much for posting on the community! 🎼

Same. Every few months I try to restrict Pandora. Now I can't even turn the setting to NO EXPLICIT CONTENT. My only options are Explicit allowed, or Explicit allowed with password. I'm ready to leave Pandora forever. It's not worth it. You are exposing my small child to terrible and damaging things. Shame on you.

Hey there, @porchlight. 👋

I'm very sorry to hear that you're having issues with the explicit filter. I definitely understand the impact this can have on your listening sessions especially with your child. 

I've gone ahead and checked your account via our User Support team. Your account has the explicit filter enabled -- meaning you *should not* receive any explicit content when listening. To clarify, if you were to enter your password and click on the icon -- it would allow you to experience uncensored tunes.

There is also a thread in the My Collection board of the community where other listeners have run into similar issues: Explicit Content filter is not working 

In the meantime, could you provide further details about what is happening?

  • The name of the station where the explicit track(s) play
  • The name(s) of the artist(s)
  • The title(s) of the explicit track(s)
  • Were you able to give the track(s) a Thumbs down?
  • Were you listening using a Pandora Mode like Crowd Faves, Discovery or Deep Cuts?

Let me know, and I can take a deeper look to see what's going on for you.

How do I private message you - or can you just email me?

Can I block entire genres of music? I'm not the one listening. My 1st grader gets on it via Alexa - it's driving us nuts and impossible to control, other than unplugging Alexa.  The main problem is Pandora use.

While there isn't a way to set a timer on your Explicit Filter, what you can do is manually enable the filter while you are work, and then disable it when you lave.
