How to Enable Sensitive Content Warnings in iOS 17? Sensitive item Warnings have been implemented by Apple in iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 to prevent unsolicited nude photos and related items from reaching your iPhone or iPad. Here’s how to turn on the feature.
When you set Sensitive Content Warnings in iOS 17, inbound files, movies, and photos are checked on-device and blocked if they include nudity. Images in Messages, Contact Posters for the Phone app, AirDrop, FaceTime messages, and third-party apps can all benefit from opt-in blurring.
This is distinct from the Communication Safety features created by Apple for children and is intended for users of all ages. Follow the instructions below to enable Sensitive Content Warnings.
How to Enable Sensitive Content Warnings in iOS 17?
- Launch the Settings app.
- Select Privacy & Security.
- Scroll to the bottom and select Sensitive Content Warning.
- To enable the feature, tap the switch next to Sensitive Content Warning.
With the feature enabled, you’ll see additional options for enabling Sensitive Content Warnings for specific services such as AirDrop, Contacts, Messages, and Video Messages.
When the function is enabled, Apple’s operating system blocks all nudity by default, although individual material can always be watched by tapping on the “Show” button.
