How to Mute Keywords on the Peanut App

We’re always working hard to make Peanut a safe space for all women, regardless of their life stage.

And we know that some topics may be difficult to see ‒ or you might just want to see more relevant content!

That’s why, in May 2020, we launched the “Mute Keywords” feature to the Peanut community ‒ so you can personalize the content you see on Peanut.

What is the Mute Keywords feature on Peanut?

The “Mute Keywords” feature on Peanut allows you to select specific words that you don’t want to see on Peanut.











For example, if you’re experiencing fertility issues, we understand that seeing pregnancy announcements and discussions of baby names may be upsetting.

So by ‘muting’ keywords like “pregnancy” or “baby names”, you won’t see any posts from other users about either of those topics.

Or, if you’re at maximum capacity for content about Covid-19, you can mute words like “coronavirus”, “pandemic”, and “Covid-19”.

And if you want to tune into those conversations again, you can easily ‘un-mute’ them!
