As a social media giant, X hosts a variety of moderated content that’s classified as “sensitive.” Adult themes are permitted to a certain extent, but not in high visibility areas, so people who want to view and share sensitive tweets need to alter their privacy settings.

X’s sensitive media policy stipulates that people who don’t want to view inappropriate content can easily avoid it. Users under 18 are automatically restricted from tweets not deemed appropriate.

Under the policy, X doesn’t allow the following sensitive media content under any circumstances:

  1. Graphic content
  2. Adult nudity and sexual behavior
  3. Violent sexual conduct
  4. Bestiality and necrophilia
  5. Gratuitous gore

How to see sensitive content on X

If you’re 18 or over — and have included your birth date on your profile — you can adjust your privacy and safety settings to view sensitive content.

Here’s how to allow sensitive content on X:

  1. Log into X and tap your avatar (or click Moreon desktop).
  2. Tap Settings and Supportand choose Settings and privacy from the dropdown menu.
  3. Tap Privacy and safety, then Content you see.
  4. Check the box Display media that may contain sensitive content. (In case you want to know how to turn off sensitive content on X, just uncheck this box).

  6. If you’re viewing sensitive content on X, you may want to hide what you’re looking at. To do this, choose one of the best privacy browsersthat will block or delete browser cookies, and stop web tracking.

Why does the “This Tweet might include sensitive content” warning show on X?

X’s sensitive content policy doesn’t allow adult content to be posted in live videos, profile headers, list banner images, or community cover photos. And if you share this kind of content, you have to mark each relevant Tweet, or your entire account, as sensitive. Doing this will place a warning message over your images and videos: “This tweet might include sensitive content.”

If a user hasn’t marked a tweet as sensitive but X detects sensitive content, it will also show the warning.

How to enable sensitive content in X searches

Here’s how to change sensitive content settings on X so that potentially sensitive tweets will appear in your searches:

  1. Log into X and tap your avatar (or click More on desktop).
  2. Tap Settings and Support and choose Settings and privacy from the dropdown menu.

  4. Tap Privacy and safety, then Content you see.
  5. Tap Search settings.
  6. Uncheck Hide sensitive content.
  7. Now that you know how to allow sensitive content on X searches, make sure you stay safe on the platform — and on every site — by not oversharing personal info or clicking shady links that may allow cybercriminals to steal your identity. If you do fall victim, be sure to file an identity theft report. Then, find and remove personal informationonline to prevent identity theft in the future.

How to remove the sensitive content warning from your tweets

Are your tweets popping up with the sensitive content warning? If you want to turn this off — and your posts aren’t sensitive — you’ll need to know how to change privacy and safety settings on X. Just remember, if you regularly post sensitive content, X expects you to mark your account as such.

Here’s how to change privacy settings on X to remove content warnings:

  1. Log into X and tap your avatar (or click More on desktop).
  2. Advertisement
  3. Tap Settings and Support and choose Settings and privacy from the dropdown menu.
  4. Click Privacy and safety, then Your Tweets.
  5. Uncheck the option to Mark media you Tweet as having material that may be sensitive.
  6. Even if you don’t post tweets that are deemed sensitive, be careful what you share online. Cyberthieves can learn a lot about you from your social media accounts, so stay as private as possible.
  7. You can set your X account to private, just like you can make your Instagram profile private. And even if you’ve enabled “Do Not Track” on your browser, that isn’t effective at preventing advanced online tracking techniques. You need a reliable security app to protect your activity while you move around the internet, tweeting or getting into anything else.
  8. While X is a secure platform, it contains millions of links to other websites, found in all types of tweets. Whenever you’re online, use comprehensive security software like Avast Oneto make sure the links you click and websites you visit are safe. Install Avast One today — completely free — and explore the web safely.
