Community muting is a feature that allows logged-in redditors to exclude communities they're not interested in from showing up in their notifications, Home feed (including recommendations), and Popular feed on the Reddit apps or reddit.com desktop site.
If you’d like to stop seeing content from a community in your Home and Popular feeds or notifications – for any reason – you can mute the community by using the overflow menu "...” or visiting your in-app or reddit.com user settings:
- To mute a community from your Home or Popular feed tap “…” and select Mute r/[Community name].
- To mute a community from a recommendation, tap “...” and select Show fewer posts like this. After selecting your preference of seeing less of This individual post or Posts from this community, you will get the additional option to mute the community.
- To mute a community from a community page select the “...” option then tap Mute.
- To mute a community from your Settings, go to your Account Settings:
- On iOS and Android, find the Blocking and Permissions section. There you will see the option to Manage muted communities.
- On reddit.com on the web, find the Safety and Privacy section. There you will see the option to Manage muted communities.
If you don’t want to entirely mute a community, you can still modify or turn off notifications from particular communities in your Notification Settings. Additionally, if you change your notification preferences for a muted community, by opting into notifications, you will be removing it from your muted community list and will see the community in your recommendations and feeds again.
You can use muting to stop seeing the content a community shares, but if the community you’re muting has also broken Reddit’s rules against harassment, threatening violence, hate, or anything else in our Content Policy, we also ask that you report the rule-breaking content.
We’re starting with a focused launch to learn and design the next set of features. In future launches, muting will remove communities from other mixed feeds and recommendations.
