How to enable and disable NSFW content on Reddit

NSFW (or Not Safe For Work) is an abbreviation (Internet slang) that is used to label content (text, images, videos, and links) that would be embarrassing if watched on a public environment (at home, at work or school). NSFW-marked items may be sexual or sexually suggestive, profane, or show extreme violence. This article will get you to know how to enable or disable NSFW content on Reddit.

Reddit and NSFW Content

If you want to consume NSFW content (it’s okay, no need to feel a type of way), you can just enable it on Reddit. Then, you should make sure that you watch or read it away from ‘the public’. On the flip side, you can disable it and consume what is SFW (Safe for Work) only.

Since Reddit is available on both the app and the web, this article will provide you with enabling/disabling steps on both platforms. The steps should work properly whether you’re using an iPhone, an iPad, an Android, a Mac, a Linux, or a Windows PC.

Enabling and Disabling on the app

  1. From your home screen, tap on the app’s icon to launch it. Make sure that you are logged in to your account.
  2. On the screen that opens, tap on the icon at the top-left corner to draw out your profile’s menu. Alternatively, you can slide right.
  3. Tap on ‘Settings’ button that is at the bottom of the menu.
  4. When the ‘Settings’ menu displays, tap on the ‘Show NSFW content (I’m over 18)’ to toggle the button on (it will change to blue).

If you’re not 18 and over, it is safe that you keep away from all this NSFW thing.

  1. Once this is done, you realize that the ‘Blur NSFW Images’ button gets activated too. If you wish to see NSFW images clear, tap the button and turn it off.

Now, NSFW feeds will appear on your Reddit’s timeline and images will show clearly.

  1. Disabling the function needs you to do steps 1 – 3, and then on step 4, tap on the button to toggle it off.

Enabling and Disabling on the web

On the web, you can mark your account as NSFW and also enable your viewing of adult and NSFW content.

To mark your account as NSFW, see below:

  1. On your browser, visit the website and make sure that you are logged in to your account.
  2. On the home page, click on the down arrow next to your Reddit’s username.
  3. Then, click on ‘User Settings’.
  4. On the page that opens, tap on the ‘Profile’ tab and slide to the ‘Profile Category’ section.
  5. Click on the toggle button next to the NSFW label. A ‘Changes Saved’ message will appear.
  6. Deactivating this setting is simple – just reverse step 5 above. Reddit will give you a prompt that warns you about sharing NSFW content without marking your account first – that you can be suspended.

To enable NSFW content to appear on your feeds:

  1. Under ‘User Settings’, click on the ‘Feed Settings’ tab.
  2. Under ‘Content Preferences’, click on the button next to ‘Adult Content’.
  3. After the changes are saved, you should be expecting NSFW feeds on your timeline.

Read this, it’s safe for work (giggles)

If you want to share steamy hot or crazy mad content and you want to avoid getting into trouble with Reddit, mark your account as an NSFW account first (do it via the web).

Also, remember not to be in ‘public’ as you scroll through your feeds if your account is NSFW-viewing enabled.
