Redacting Profanity in Mobile Devices

That said, censoring profane words in mobile devices is still deemed imperative, especially that more and more kids are already into using smartphones and tablets these days. Thankfully, contemporary devices are already equipped with many useful features including those that are programmed to block offensive languages when using certain apps or services like Google Voice Typing.

If you’re wondering how to activate this feature on your Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, this quick demo should help you do it.

The following steps will enable a language restriction feature to block or censor potential foul terms when using Google Voice Typing on the Galaxy Tab S6.

If turning this feature on makes your Google Voice typing searches somehow erratic or incomplete, then you can just re-configure the voice typing settings and toggle the switch next to hide offensive words to turn the feature off again. 

Just repeat the same steps to get back to the On-screen Keyboard menu then access the Google voice typing settings to apply necessary changes.

You can always apply necessary restrictions later, when needed.

Censoring Profane Languages in Other Input Software

Aside from Google Voice typing, you can also enable the same language feature on other input keyboards systems including Swiftkey, Gboard, and Samsung Keyboard.

In Samsung Keyboard, profane languages and offensive words can be censored by creating or adding text shortcuts to replace foul languages.

To apply these settings, you will need to access the Samsung Keyboard’s Smart Typing feature and then select Text shortcuts to start adding new text shortcuts.

And that covers everything in this short guide.
