How To Set Up Spotify Parental Controls

Spotify is a popular music-streaming service. This resource will review Spotify's parental control options. For more information on the app itself, you can check out our Spotify app review, which will go over harmful content, predation, privacy, and more.

About Spotify Parental Controls

With Spotify’s Premium Family Plan, parents can use the Explicit Content Filter setting for all users associated with the account. This plan also features:

  • Family Mix: Families get access to a personalized playlist with songs for the whole family. Family Mix is updated regularly and you can control who is in each session to optimize your family’s favorite music.
  • Family Hub: The Family Hub allows the account owners to manage their Family’s settings in one place, including adding or removing family members, keeping the home address up to date, and adjusting your parental controls.
  • Multiple accounts: Spotify Premium Family still provides six individual Spotify Premium accounts for family members living under one roof, meaning you’ll keep your own saved music and playlists.

How to Set Up the Explicit Content Filter on Spotify Family Plan Account

  1. Open up the Spotify app on your phone.
  2. From the menu at the top right, tap Account Overview
  3. Tap Premium Family.
  4. Choose one of your kids.
  5. Toggle off Explicit content.

How to Set Up the Explicit Content Filter on a Regular Spotify Account

While it's nice that Spotify offers this feature, it's not passcode protected, which means your kid can simply toggle it back on as soon as you're done.

  1. On your kid's phone, open up the Spotify app.
  2. In the top left corner, tap their profile icon.
  3. Tap Settings and privacy.
  4. Tap Explicit Content.
  5. Make sure it's toggled off.
