Description from store This extension filters profanity words in Netflix. It both censors the subtitles and mutes the audio on the appropriate sentence. With customizable profanity word list. To use this, subtitles in Netflix need to be turned on. Because the filtering is based on the subtitles, make sure you add profanity words to the list in the language of the subtitles.

  • (2023-09-09) Arnold Jansen: Trash, doesn't work.
  • (2022-06-30) Karen Eastcott: When I try to use this it never works.
  • (2022-01-09) Kevin Taliaferro: This does not work with Netflix audio.
  • (2021-12-21) Joshua Church: Takes a little bit to get started, but works well. I noticed it will blank out the audio for whatever chunk of text is in the subtitle, not just the offending word. Have you considered integration with a service like put.io? That would really expand its utility! And thanks!
  • (2021-11-26) Jill Timoney: This filter is not working. I have added the words, in the format provided and saved them. In the Netflix app, I have turned on the subtitles in Netflix and the profanity just continues. When I go to Netflix through the Chrome browser, the subtitles shrink to a strange line with, widely tiny spaced letters and there's no sound of voices at all. Please can someone help.
  • (2021-11-22) Sarah Wentzel: Hi! I am trying this for the first time and it is bleeping out every word lol. Can I get some advice?
  • (2021-09-17) Pickle Jarz: Great app for teachers! Often documentaries are rated mature because of language which is unfortunate because there are so many good ones that cant be shown in class. This app allows me to share clips without worry. Thank you!
  • (2021-08-22) Stacey Wamsteker: is there something i am supposed to do to activate this? I added the extension to chrome and restarted the browser but it isn't working. If there is something else I need to do to make it work I will make the changes and give a higher rating.
  • (2021-05-31) Robin Pate: It allows the F word and other profanity but filters out God and Jesus. God and Jesus are not profanity and if you are going to filter out God and Jesus then you need to filter out Islam, Buddhism, Muhammed and other religious words. Stop censoring the only true way to Heaven.
  • (2021-05-07) The Winter Jedi: Does Not work/ Am typing it in correctly. \w*myword /w* DONT WORK on NETFLIX!! Total Rubbish.
  • (2021-03-14) BluesCat: This is amazing! Now I can watch anime cleanly safely! But problem is... I can't seem to add words to the list of blocked profanities. The dang thing (The plugin) is greyed out. 😞
  • (2021-03-09) Gavin Cruz: After I downloaded the extension, it was working I think but I'm not sure if I can recall that it was all the time but then when I tinkered with the options regarding the words that should not be allowed, it sometimes work (if my memory is correct) but I think it no longer does. Should I just undo what I did in the options?
  • (2021-02-07) Nathan & Danica Reid: Worked for some months, but recently stopped working and can't figure out why.
  • (2021-01-23) DavidStrongInChrist: A bit buggy to set up at first but works great with a hidden subtitle extension! Thanks so much for making this :)
  • (2021-01-05) Paula Sorensen: I just paid for this and there are not instructions on how to use it. It is not working.
  • (2020-12-21) bob scott: i wanted it to filter the movie not just the subtitles if you the the off then you just hear the foul laguage
  • (2020-09-23) Charine Burger: We had issues with watching Netflix, as all shows have profanity and uses the Lord's name in vain. Now we can watch without the profanity.
  • (2020-08-29) Lenzo Corner: It works as advertised which is nice but I would like to know if there is a way for the audio to only blot out the audio of the blocked word and not the whole sentence and resume audio quicker?
  • (2020-06-30) Junior Douw: I liked it very much, thanks, but its not working anymore , doesnt filter out the words anymore, please help, thanks.
  • (2020-04-01) Kalani Farley: It wouldn't work for me; I added words, checked and double checked that I formatted them correctly. I closed Chrome, even rebooted my computer. I made sure Netflix's subtitles were on, but the cussing still came right through. Am I doing something wrong? Please let me know! I'm using the Netflix browser (I tried the app you can download, too; didn't work), I have subtitles on, I restarted Chrome, I clicked save when I added words to the blacklist.
  • (2020-03-28) Gman!: It doesn't work on Netflix. Tried all the help settings with no luck.
  • (2019-12-21) Franco: Great extension
  • (2019-12-14) Ashley S: Does what it needs to do! Fabulous.
  • (2019-10-01) Christian Barrington: It does not work
  • (2019-09-08) Sunflower Dougherty: Please help... this extension is not working properly. Using the latest version of Chrome "76.0.3809.132 (Official Build) (64-bit)" on Windows 10 and with the Netflix English subtitles [CC] turned on with this extension active, it will play the audio and subtitles for just like one or two seconds, then all of the sudden the following two lines of code display on the screen very tiny ***<***s***p***a***n*** ***s***t***y***l***e***=***"***f***o***n***t***-***s***i***z***e***=***3***8***p***x***.***l***i***n***e***-***h***e***i***g***h***t***=***n***o***r***m**a***l*** and it goes on and there's another duplicate line below that. As soon as the code looking stuff appears real tiny across the screen in place of the larger subtitles, immediately the audio is silenced basically from then on. Is there a way to fix this?
  • (2019-04-26) Laurie: A good idea (especially if you make subtitles smaller and transparent in the netflix settings) but too often it doesn't mute long enough. For example in "the making of the mob S1 E1" at 11:03 the filter kicks in for "oh" and stars out the following blaspheme but the audio kicks back in for the word it is trying to filter. A "duration of mute" option to extend it, or mute for the position of the word in the subtitles would be better. I played with the "ms" option for checking the subtitles but this just made it haphazard in the detection so isn't the answer. 2 words, the last one to me muted, mute for the latter 50% of the duration of the subtitle.
  • (2019-02-24) Worked good but now it doesn't.
  • (2019-02-06) Timothy Huang: Can you also make a youtube version for this? So it does the same thing for netflix as for youtube.
  • (2018-12-16) Karen Frye: I can't get it to work
  • (2018-11-22) B B: its ok just annoying it sensors the whole sentence not just the word
  • (2018-08-24) Casper Bloemendaal: Please add an option to only censor the subtitles, maybe even a suboption to only mute audio if the language matches the subtitlelanguage, because Dutch is often translated much ruder than the English version is. Awesome plugin :) Zou je een optie kunnen toevoegen die alleen de ondertiteling censureert? Misschien zelfs een optie die alleen censureert wanneer de ondertitelde taal de gesproken taal matcht, gezien de Nederlandse vertaling vaak een stuk groffer is dan het gesproken Engels.
  • (2018-06-06) Don D: Worked on one computer & not on another. Both 64bit Win7, one works flawlessly, the other simply does not work (yes, I set them up the same - I even uninstalled & reinstalled it, no change). Wish it was reliable.
  • (2018-05-16) 85Nulife: Great extension. Appreciate the efforts on this.
  • (2018-04-06) Ella Bekeen: Not working...at all...
  • (2017-12-28) Rocco du Plessis: Great app, but needs the option to hide the subtitles. Thanks otherwise!
  • (2017-10-18) Jonathan Els: Blocks the subtitle swear word but not the audio.
  • (2017-10-09) Darryl Green Music: Garbage!!! Did not work with subtitles and I find it completely dumb you need the subtitles on.
  • (2017-08-21) Pieter van der Merwe: This works great. Thank you so much!
  • (2017-08-19) Amanda Rankin: Added offending words and they still came through, loud and clear. Glad I tested before anyone else tried it out. I tried to copy and paste, I tried to manually enter, I tried saving after adding each line, and then saving after doing a bulk add. Nothing got this this to work. It's junk.
  • (2017-07-16) Idaho Dream: This extension works flawlessly. It works off of recognizing the words or phrases in the subtitles. So activate the subtitles in Netflix and then download a Chrome extension called "Remove Netflix Subtitles" and activate it. Once you add a word to the Netflix Profanity Filter, you will then need to "refresh" or "reload" the page of the movie you are currently playing.
  • (2017-07-09) Janna Young: used to work, now its not
  • (2017-06-09) Andrew McNeill: Excellent app.
  • (2017-05-18) 3D Virgins: Works perfectly! Awesome plug-in!
  • (2017-04-23) BigHunterification: For the most part it works great! Every now and then it will edit words that contain parts of profanity such as, "assume" or "helicopter." Overall, we enjoy being able to watch shows without having to hear the garbage.
  • (2017-03-20) Caleb Walz: Thank you so much! Works great. There is a chrome extension you can get that hides the subtitles for you. It is free (Remove Netflix Subtitles). Or you can buy Ufilter extension that does it all for you.
  • (2017-03-10) Mary Haven: How do you even get to the screen to add the words? This is broken!!!
  • (2017-02-26) Mark Ruggerio: I like it a lot...Works as advertised! Does not work while chromecasting unless you cast desktop. but slows down dramatically.
  • (2017-02-15) Angela P.: Works as advertised and you can add your own words to the list in Options. Just copy and paste one of the other lines and change the word to a new word you want to block. Don't forget to click the SAVE button at the bottom when you're finished. And the last step is to ***THIS IS IMPORTANT*** restart Chrome. If you don't restart Chrome then your added words will not be muted. You MUST restart Chrome (close it and reopen it) for the list to be fully updated.
