Bleep or blur out anything inappropriate, offensive, or private in your video

Censor videos for YouTube, Twitch, and more

Block out curse words, anything NSFW, or people who want to remain private. Let a curse word slip on accident? Have a bleep sound cover it. Covering a topic that might have NSFW content? Pin a black bar to a still or moving object to cover the inappropriate parts of the video.

The last thing you want is to get demonetized, your content removed, or even banned by having uncensored videos on your profile. Everything you need to censor a video is all in one place, ready for you to use: black censor bars, a blur tool, bleep sound effects, and more.

Your go-to video censor tool

Censoring videos shouldn’t be difficult. You shouldn’t have to download assets, install software, and learn how to navigate your own video editor. With Kapwing, everything you need to censor your video is right at the tip of your fingers all in one editor.

Avoid getting strikes on YouTube, Twitch, Instagram, and other platforms. Make censored videos so you can share your video with anyone online without having to worry about violating DMCA rights, privacy rights, and other copyright laws. Oftentimes, YouTubers use copyright-free music to avoid getting a DMCA strike and their videos being taken down.

Easily place a black bar over eyes for people who want to keep their identity private or censor logos so you don’t breach a contract in a sponsored video. Whatever the case, you can censor parts of a video or an entire video completely online with Kapwing – no download or payment required.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

How can I bleep out words in a video?

To bleep out words in a video, you can use any video editor and place a sound effect or sound bit on top of any profane words or phrases. Some online video editors have royalty-free bleep censors you can use easily by dragging and dropping a sound clip in the place you want to censor.

How do you censor audio in a video?

Censor audio in a video by using any sounds to cover curse words or inappropriate language. Some common sound effects creators use are bleep censors, animal noises, and high piano notes. All three of these sound effects, and more, can be found in any royalty-free audio library online.

How do you add a censor block to a video?

With the right video editor, it’s simple to add a censor block to a video. Use other images, stickers, or plain geometric shapes to cover an area of a video. The most common way to cover a part of a video is by using a censor bar on top of someone’s eyes, private information, or any other elements that need to be censored.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
