This article explains how to hide or unhide “Offensive words and phrases” in the Threads app on mobile devices.
The Threads app is a messaging app developed by Facebook for users who want to keep in touch with their closest friends and share their status. It allows users to share photos, videos, messages, stories, and more.
The mobile version also lets you turn “Offensive words and phrases” on or off so that replies to posts containing common words, phrases, or emojis that may be offensive, misleading, or spam will automatically move to a covered section at the bottom of your thread.
Hiding or unhiding offensive words and phrases in the Threads app can help you filter out unwanted or potentially harmful content from your conversations. By turning on this feature, any messages containing common offensive words or phrases will be hidden from view, making your experience on the app more pleasant and safe.
Conversely, if you choose to turn off this feature, you may see more explicit or offensive language in your conversations.
