Why do I see parental warnings on Instagram sites?

Jen November 29, 2011

When I go to a person’s site on Instagram it says parental advisory and shows 6 round dynomites. What does this mean? Does the user add this or does the system add this if they feel its inaproprioate for all ages?

    instagram do not allow adult content,

    instagram removed the account of a photographer:

    the instagram page of the most popular adult magazine did not show any warning, as they are not uploading exact adult content on their instagram page.

    so the more chances are of a user generated warning.

    Hello, do you have parental control enable in your computer?  If you do, it will do this, according as to how it was setup.  I can also be set in the site itself.  Most likely that is what you are seeing.

    Hi Jen,

    What software is generating the parental advisory? This is probably a false positive, meaning that the software thinks that it is inappropriate, when it really isn't. I see that it's an image sharing service, perhaps it mistook it for pornography?
