How Do I Set My Filters?
Setting your filters is easy. To activate a filter simply click on it. If the filter is gray with a line through it, you will not see or hear those items.
If the filter is white and fully visible, you will see and hear those items.

These filters apply to every movie that you watch. They can be applied by logging into your VidAngel account online: https://www.vidangel.com/filters.
Default filters use broad categories that can apply to all movies. To select your filters, click the filter category, subcategory, or individual filter. When the filter is activated, it will be applied to each movie you watch.
Movie Specific Filters
Movie-specific filters are the filters we've created for the specific movie you want to watch. When opening a movie you will see text that says something like "73 OF 129 FILTERS ON"
Click Filters button and you will be able to see the specific filters of any given movie. Once you're in the Filters screen, you can customize your movies even further by only taking out the most objectionable content.
On the VidAngel website and the VidAngel mobile apps, filters are enabled by clicking directly on the filter itself (use the blue drop-down icon to the left of the filter categories and subcategories to access additional filters).
On the Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV apps, click (or swipe) over to the sound or movie icon for the filter you want, and then click Select to activate the filter.
Changing Filters in the Middle of a Movie
- Stop the movie.
- Select the FILTERS button.
- Make the changes you desire to your movie's filters. (Once you have begun a movie, these changes must be made in the movie specific filters, not in your Default Filters.)
- Restart your movie with the new filter settings.
NOTE: If you set movie specific filters they will remain saved once you leave the movie. Movie specific settings will override any Default Filter settings. Once you have watched a movie, or set movie specific filters, changes to your Default Filters will not modify your existing choices. Default Filters will only apply to movies that do not have movie specific filters selected.
Parental Controls: Filter Locks
We're excited for you to try our new Parental Controls with filter locks! You can access this tool on our website by going to your Profile (or it may say your name if you've set that up) > Settings/Subscription > scroll down to Parental Controls. There, you can set your passcode for these controls and the filters you choose will be locked on ALL profiles.
NOTE: On some TV devices it may appear that you are able to de-select a locked filter while viewing a movie-specific set of filters, however, don't worry, it is still locked and you will see this if you refresh the page.
