Siri is a smart personal assistant that's always ready to answer your queries or carry out various tasks like sending an email or translating a language quickly. The personal assistant uses language or words as per context to ensure you enjoy communicating with it. However, if you don't want it to use offensive words, you can block explicit language from Siri on your iOS device.
Thanks to Restrictions, which is also known as “Parental Controls,” it's possible to block explicit language for Siri. Once restricted, the personal assistant won't use certain words or terms, which are considered to be inappropriate.
How to Prevent Siri from Using Explicit Language on iPhone and iPad
Make sure you have enabled Restrictions on your device. If you haven't done it as yet, open Settings app → General → Restrictions → Enable Restrictions → Enter the passcode and confirm.
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iOS device → Tap on General.
Step #2. Tap on Restrictions.
Step #3. Now, you have to enter your iPhone restrictions passcode.
Step #4. Next, scroll down and tap on Siri.
Step #5. Next up, you need to turn off switch next to Explicit Language.
Going forward, Siri won't be able to use offensive languages. If you ever want to remove this restriction, just follow the steps we have just mentioned above and then toggle on Explicit Language in the end.
With iOS 11, Siri has become smarter and has got a natural sound. Besides, you can also use the intelligent personal assistant to translate language languages quickly.
