Enable NSFW Content on Reddit

Reddit is home to hundreds of thousands of different conversations and content–that includes NSFW content or “Not Safe For Work.” And that’s the beauty of Reddit; you can find just about any content you want. Reddit, and its users, even go as far as to add an “NSFW” tag to a post if it contains something sensitive like: nudity, suggestive imagery or themes, and written content.

Reddit may have hidden NSFW content by default. In that case, you’ll have to enable it before it’ll show up in your feed. It’s a fairly simple process that has slight variations depending on what you’re using to surf Reddit, whether it’s a handheld device or computer

Here’s how you enable NSFW content on Reddit’s new site and old site.
