Downloading a Spoiler Prevention App
Download the Chrome Spoiler Protection 2.0 plug-in for the desktop. This extension hides keywords on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, and news sites. Just type keywords like "Stranger Things" or "spoilers" and let the extension do its job.
Use phones like Spoiler Block (iPhone, Android) and Spoiler Blocker (Android) for phones. If you add keywords that you want to block, apps will not include them in your newsfeed.
