If you’re using your phone throughout the day, the last thing you want is to receive unsolicited images, especially those featuring nudity, from people who seem to enjoy sharing such content without any prompting.

Thankfully, iOS 17 will introduce a helpful feature known as the “Sensitive Content Warning,” aiming to protect you from encountering such explicit images. While it won’t prevent the images from arriving, the feature can detect sensitive content and automatically blur the images before you view them. However, if you still decide to view the content, that choice is entirely up to you.

Keep in mind that the Sensitive Content Warning is not activated by default, so you’ll need to adjust the settings to enable it. Here’s how you can set it up:

1. Go to Settings > Privacy & Security

To get started, open the Settings app on your iPhone, scroll down, and tap Privacy & Security.

2. Tap Sensitive Content Warning

Tap Sensitive Content Warning after scrolling down that page. It’s immediately above Analytics & Improvements and beneath Safety Check. By default, it is turned off, therefore you should modify it.

4. Choose which apps to apply it to

Sensitive Content Warning is now applicable in four separate situations. You have the choice of using AirDrop, Contacts, Messages, or Video Messages.

You have the option of turning them all on, off, or picking and selecting which situations will result in the censoring of sensitive content. You should turn them all on just to be safe.

5. Wait and let Sensitive Content Warning do its thing

Once the settings are on, iOS will be able to check and identify any instances of nudity in incoming photos and video messages. Like the Apple image on the left, the image will be blurred out in gray if nudity is present.
