When a player sends a message with a filtered word, other players cannot see the message.

Filters are used in Club Penguin to block certain words from the Standard Safe Chat, such as swear words and words with inappropriate meanings. The filters are meant to keep players safe. Most of the time, a ban comes up instantly when saying inappropriate words or swearing. Other characters, like numbers, cannot get through as they simply cannot be typed into the chat bar. Apostrophes are allowed as of April 4, 2013. Club Penguin has a list of over 300,000 words players are allowed to say. If a word isn't on the list, they can't say it (which prompts the player to ask if "it showed").


  • Filters were first introduced in Penguin Chat.
  • On some occasions, certain swear words can get through the filters if used in a sentence.
  • There are other filters that block some normal words (for example, "Love") in certain sentences.
  • Moderators can see 'filtered messages'; this means things that would not be shown to normal players. These messages appear in a reddish brown box instead of white.[1]
