    Anyway to filter out Explicit songs on Apple Music?

    I want to play Top Hits or certain stations without the vulgar stuff during work.

    I'm wondering the same thing, I can't find an option anywhere.

    I would like to toggle this when home / at work.

    It's under the iOS general settings under restrictions.

    Have you tried iTunes > Preferences > Parental > Restrict music with explicit content. (OSx)
    Settings > General > Restrictions (iOS)

    I think that did the trick! Thanks guys. Only thing is that it lumps Podcasts in there too and some of my podcasts have an Explicit rating even though they aren't vulgar. Oh well, better than what I had. Thanks again

    That fixed it for also thank you. Good thing all I listen to is Star wars podcasts :) so this doesn't effect that, but Apple should really break this up into categories.

    Yeah some of my Podcasts are Explicit, but they don't have anything bad in them per se, just health stuff that may talk about sex at times.

    Ok this is frustrating...... I turned on the filter and after a shut down and reboot it was working. I went on a trip only to have the app choose to play all explicit music. I thought no problem close app shut down reboot. NOPE! The same thing now the app won't stop playing it. Does anyone have any good tips to help?

    Still have some Explicit songs showing up in the For You playlists and in some radio stations. Hope Apple can fix this soon.
