Since accessing content online is easier than its ever been before, mature content has risen in kind, and VidAngel is a tool that helps people to limit their exposure through software. The app automatically drags content and culls whatever the viewer is hoping to avoid, including things like nudity, violence, and swearing.

With VidAngel, viewers can customize their settings to make sure the software only cuts out precisely the language they want to avoid. The app uses AI to recognize specific aspects of mature content, and it can get impressively granular. Users can filter out things like sexual violence, nudity, or sex without nudity, as well as specific language (like the f-word or the c-word.)

Though its name might make it sound like a repository for another type of mature content, VidAngel is a helpful and appropriate tool for household's trying to limit their children's exposure in an increasingly connected world.
