Use the Family Settings to control access to content

If you use Family Settings to control what kind of content can be viewed or played through Xbox Live on your console, the Slacker Radio app will follow those settings. For example, if you use parental controls to restrict explicit music or music video content, the explicit content will be marked with a “restricted” icon in the Slacker Radio app.

For more information about how to restrict Xbox Live content using Family Settings, see Set parental controls for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live.
