How do I filter out comments I don't want to appear on my posts?

Comments that may be inappropriate, offensive or bullying are automatically filtered out from your posts and live videos. Comments are filtered automatically by default, but you can always change this setting:

  1. Go to your profile and tap .
  2. TapSettings.
  3. Tap Comment Controls.
  4. Tap next to Hide Offensive Comments to turn it on.

If you have the offensive comment filter turned on, you can also turn on a keyword filter to hide comments that contain specific words, phrases, numbers or emoji that you'd like to avoid.

  1. Go to your profile and tap .
  2. TapSettings.
  3. Tap Comment Controls.
  4. Make sure that Hide Offensive Comments is turned on.
  5. Tap next to Enable Keyword Filters to turn it on.

Enter specific words, phrases, numbers or emoji in the text box to filter out comments.

Keep in mind that default and custom keyword filtering aren't currently available in all languages:

  • Default Keywords: The default list of keywords is only available in certain languages
  • Custom Keywords: Currently, custom keyword filtering doesn't support languages without spaces (ex: Chinese, Japanese, Thai)

When you turn on comment filtering, it’s applied to both new and existing comments on your posts. When you turn off comment filtering, filtered comments on your posts will be restored.
