Though cuss words are becoming normal in our routine life, it is still a strict no-no for kids, who haven’t come off age. This has necessitated parents keeping a vigilant eye on what kind of content their kids are consuming on different media.
Apple Music is now accessible to kids also, and therefore, parents are required to watch what they download on their Apple devices. There are many songs with a lot of expletives kids are not supposed to listen to.
Thankfully, you can set restrictions on such content. Read further and remove those swear words from Apple Music.

You can see a long list of apps under different sections like ALLOW, ALLOWED CONTENT, PRIVACY, ALLOW CHANGES, and GAME CENTER.
You can block many apps so that your kids cannot use those blocked apps. If you want to make necessary changes in the Apple Music app, go to the ALLOWED CONTENT section, and tap on “Music & Podcasts”. Next, you will find an option of EXPLICIT written in red bold fonts. Just toggle this option OFF. This will block any objectionable content on iTunes, Apple Music, or the Podcasts app.

How to Remove Swear Words from Apple Music on Mac or Windows PC using iTunes
Step #1. Launch iTunes on your Mac or desktop computer → Click on iTunes from the top navigation menu → click on Preferences.
Step #2. Click on restrictions.
Step #3. You can click on Podcasts, Internet Radio, and iTunes Store.
Alternatively, you can also select checkboxes listed below Restrict option. You can restrict music with explicit content, restrict movies, TV shows and apps to certain age limit, and also restrict books with explicit content.
Please note that Apple Music has some “Clean” versions of music, and this will make its way into your device even though you have restricted explicit content. But you don’t need to worry as such content would be filtered out and your kids would listen to content which is edited. They will get to listen to beeped versions of such songs.
