    The option we want says, "Block offensive words".
    The default setting on the HTC One M8 is activated. It will block all of the offensive words. We may want to change this if we want to search for music that has offensive words in it, song titles, or content that contains offensive words. If this setting is turned on, it will be hard to search for these. If a child were using this, we may want to keep this turned on.
