Explicit content is a tag used to help us categorize our catalogue and improve your listening experience. When browsing our catalogue, you'll see content tagged with the EXPLICIT or E (on desktop). We work with record labels, industry partners and our users to ensure our content is tagged correctly.
Note: If you find content that you think has been labeled incorrectly, please use our webform to report the issue
How to filter explicit content
By default, Deezer users can access all explicit content, including tracks and cover art.
If you would like to disable explicit content, you can select Hide explicit content, which will make the content grey or unplayable. This filter prevents content from appearing in searches, Flow or recommendations. All cover art tagged as explicit will also be hidden.
If you still want to search and play explicit content, you can select Do not recommend explicit content, which will stop explicit content from being recommended in your Flow and mixes.
- Go to Settings
- Go to Explicit content
- Use the sliders to choose whether you would like to Do not recommend explicit content and Hide explicit content
Note: On iOS devices you must first select Do not recommend explicit content, before you can select Hide explicit content, which prevents explicit content from being recommended, playable or searchable
On deezer.com and desktop app
- Click your user profile icon in the top-right corner
- From the drop-down menu, select Account Settings
- Go to the Display settings tab
- Use the sliders to switch Do not recommend explicit content
Note: If you use the slider to select Do not recommend explicit content, a second setting Hide explicit content will appear. If selected, explicit content won't be recommended, playable or searchable
