@evie1209 I'm happy to look into this for you, but I'll need a bit more information first. Could you tell me a little more?

Please include as much of the below information as possible:

  1. What was the ad for? Do you remember the brand, product, event or website name? - prostate cancer related
  2. How are you accessing Pandora? Are you on a computer, phone, tablet or in-home device (TV, Xbox, Blu-ray player, etc.)?
  3. Was it a visual ad, an audio ad, or a video ad with audio?
  4. Which of your station(s) did you hear/see it on?
  5. What time of day did this advertisement play?


If you're able to get a screenshot of what's happening, please send that along as well.

Once I have more information about the ad, I can pass it along to our advertising team.

We really appreciate your help with this!

I am having this issue as well.  I am a teacher and the ads continue for fertility clinics, birthing centers, and going to the gynecologist-how can this be removed?  I also get ads for the military and shotting occurs in the ad-not the best for a school setting.

 

Let me know what I can do!

Re: explicit commercials

Local Performer

Please help me remove visual and vocal explicit advertisements on my pandora account! My children use my phone. They're very inappropriate I do not even like to see them. I've already turned "off" the explicit music option. I've deleted my cookies and history. Because that's what the directions say. But I still am receiving this stinking sponsored **ahem**!

@harndt1 Our Ads team would like a little more information on the birth control ads you are receiving on your account.

If they are still playing, do you happen to remember any of the audio you heard, or the name of the brand?

Let me know.

Hi. I am receiving ads for music with sexual undertones on my Gospel music stations. Very inappropriate. Can I opt out of certain type of ads?

Alcohol Advertising on Children's Station!

Local Performer

Hello,

I am listening to a station called "Disney Princess Karaoke (Children's) Radio."  I'm offended that I was just served an ad for Truly Hard Seltzer - an alcoholic beverage.  This is simply unacceptable. 

How was this allowed to happen?

Turn off inappropriate ads

Underground

I listen to Pandora frequently at work and the ads for sex toys are ridiculous and embarrassing. There should be a way to turn them off during a certain point of the day. Or be able to downvote those ads so they never play for that user again. I don’t mind ads at all, I just don’t like it blasting loudly about sex toys in my office. I don’t think that’s too much to ask. I don’t want to filter songs that might be considered explicit. And apparently the explicit content filter doesn’t work on all ads anyway. I literally just want those ads off my account. Pretty much anything would be fine except literal sex toys.
