Saying No (and Yes) to Spoilers on Wiretap

We can’t stand spoilers either. That’s why they’re super easy for you to flag and turn off.

First, are you’re asking what’s a spoiler? Then good thing you’re here. A spoiler is a comment that gives away info, which doesn’t happen until later in the episode or series. Yes, a spoiler is a spoiler even if that info happens, say, one minute later. Here are a few examples of spoilers: saying someone will die, referring to a hookup that hasn’t happened yet, mentioning something from season 2 in season 1, and…well, you get the idea.

The rest of this post is about spoilers in Wiretap. So if you haven’t already done so, add Wiretap to Chrome and get using our fan-tastic extension. Wiretap lets you share comments with friends and fans as you watch Netflix on your laptop or desktop. And to get back on track – Wiretap lets you flag and turn off spoilers.

Sure, you may just have the itch to share something spoiler-ish. If you do, please be sure to mark your comment as a spoiler. Psst – tick the Spoiler box at the bottom right of your comment. Thanks.

You can help moderate and keep spoiler comments out by flagging other users’ comments. At the bottom right of each comment, click the exclamation mark (in the triangle) and you’ll then see Mark as… Spoiler or Offensive. Then just choose Spoiler.

And by default – that’s a main setting, spoilers are turned off. But if curiosity gets the better of you, you can turn them on. To do that, click the Wiretap logo at the top right of your Netflix screen. Our menu opens and then beside Spoilers, you can slide the toggle to On….maybe just for a little bit.

Have no fear, our moderators are always on the lookout for spoilers and we take action when people drop spoilers without tagging them.
