How to Hide the Explicit Label in iTunes
Matt Cone June 19, 2012 Tutorials Mac Music
If you listen to a lot of loud, trashy music with “explicit” lyrics (ha, ha), you may have noticed that iTunes displays a special label next to many of your song titles, as shown below. This is a parental control designed to help parents quickly identify and quarantine offensive music in iTunes. Unfortunately for those of you who don’t have children, the explicit label is displayed by default, cluttering up your music library.
There is a way to turn off and hide the explicit label in iTunes. Here’s how to do it:
Open the iTunes application.
From the iTunes menu, select Preferences.
Click Parental. The window shown below appears.
Deselect the Show content ratings in Library checkbox.
The explicit labels have disappeared, as shown below.
Now that that’s out of the way, you can enjoy some explicit music without being constantly reminded that you’re listening to it. Go ahead, indulge yourself!
