How to Control the Display of Content That Reduces Rewards During Ramadan


Although we have stepped into the holy month of Ramadan, the use of major social media platforms still shows trends and high usage rates every day. This indirectly reflects the level of dependence of today's society on social media.

However, the contents presented through social media are sometimes not suitable for the age limit or the personal wishes of an individual. Thus, it is significant throughout Ramadan which is considered as a noble and holy month by Muslims, it is important for us to take care of our senses, especially our vision, to prevent the rewards of fasting from being affected, as well as being able to improve the quality of fasting. So, the use of settings for age control limits provided by most media platforms can be taken advantage of.

Here's how to filter content on popular apps TikTok, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Google Chrome.


Tiktok allows its users to turn on Restricted Mode and Filter Video Keywords to filter unwanted content to preserve the reward of fasting. To turn it on, it's easy.

Click on the Profile section

Go to Settings and Privacy.

Press Content Preferences.

Select Filter Video Keywords or Restricted Mode according to the settings you want.

If you select Restricted Mode, press Turn On > Enter passcode

Place the 4 digit pin.

Press Next.

Enter the same 4 digit pin again.

Press Set.

In the Keyword Filter section, users can set the words for the type of video to be filtered. For example, like the word "jedag jedug" > For You & Flowing > Save.

Therefore, there will be no Tiktok video content that has elements of moral humiliation or disrespect that is edited using dangdut remix songs displayed on the user's FYP (For Your Page). This is because, when the Keyword Filter is turned on, users will no longer be able to see Tiktok video content that contains that word in the video description.


Youtube also has a Restricted Mode setting that works more or less the same as other social media platforms with the aim of limiting the viewing experience on YouTube. This is certainly so that adult video content such as videos that contain violent or "adult" content will not be shown to users who turn on Restricted Mode. To turn it on you just have to.

Press the Profile icon

Select Settings > General

Select Restricted Mode.


Just like on Twitter, users can choose to turn off settings for displaying media that may contain sensitive content so that sensitive content is hidden from your Twitter account's timeline view. This method can be done by active Twitter users throughout the fasting month to prevent you from reading or watching sensitive content that affects your daily fasting reward.

Go to Settings & Support > Settings and Privacy.

Press Privacy and safety.

Press Content you see.

Turn off the Display Media That May Contain Sensitive Content button.


Instagram also provides a sensitive content control feature for its users who want to limit the display content in the Explore section. Three options are provided for users to choose settings according to their wishes, namely More, Standard and Less. To activate it is easy.

Go to Settings and Privacy in the Profile section.

Press Sensitive Content.

Select and press More, Standard or Less settings according to your preference.

Google Chrome

On the Google Chrome search engine, there is also a SafeSearch setting that works to help users filter explicit content from the display of search results in Chrome. Explicit content is meant as media content that has elements of violence, sex and so on.

Users can turn on this SafeSearch setting in the Settings section of their respective Google Chrome accounts. However, it should be noted that this SafeSearch setting only works on the Google Chrome search engine and does not work on other search engines. It's easy.

Press your account icon which is usually in the top right corner of the application.

Go to Settings > Safe Search.

Press on the on/off button to turn it on.

Thus, the characteristics of these settings certainly help to create a limit to the content you browse on social media throughout this fasting month. In other words, the possibility of your fasting reward being severely affected can be avoided. It is hoped that all readers will be able to complete fasting this year in addition to increasing piety throughout Ramadan.
