How to Turn ON NSFW on Reddit App 2021

You might have come across an acronym “NSFW” on the internet and wondering what it really means. The term is also popular on social media platforms like Reddit.

What Does NSFW Mean?

The term “NSFW” stands for Not Safe For Work. It’s a common warning to Internet users that the content marked as NSFW is inappropriate to view at work or in public places.

It usually indicates sexual content, nudity, violence, or any other inappropriate content for those under 18.

Social Platforms like Reddit also have a feature called NSFW. You have an option to either enable or disable it.

Content creators might have marked their content as NSFW which will restrict you from viewing them.

If you have turned off NSFW content, Reddit will restrict you from viewing inappropriate content. While turning on the feature will allow you to view the content without any restriction.

In this blog post, I’ll be explaining to turn On the NSFW filter on Reddit. By default, the option is always turned off.

Turn Your Profile Category to NSFW or SFW

If you are a content creator on Reddit, you can categorize your content as NSFW or SFW.

This can be done only on the web version of Reddit.

If you have content that falls under NSFW, you can mark your profile as NSFW. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Open Reddit on your mobile browser or PC.

Step 2: If you’re on mobile, tap on the three lines at the top-right side, select Settings, then Account Settings. Go to the profile tab and turn On NSFW.

If you are on a laptop or a PC, tap on the drop-down icon at the top right and select User Settings. Go to the profile tab and turn On NSFW.

If your account does not have any adult content, you can turn this OFF which makes your profile SFW (safe for work).

Note: If you make your profile as SFW and if your account contains NSFW content, it may lead to the suspension of the account.
