TikTok is giving parents more control over how long their kids can spend on the app.
Under the new Family Safety Mode, parents will be able to control how long their children can spend on TikTok. The goal is to encourage people to develop “a healthy relationship with online apps and services.”
“We will keep introducing ways to keep our community safe so they can stay focused on what matters to them — creating, sharing, and enjoying the creativity of TikTok’s community,” TikTok’s blog post reads.
TikTok’s Family Safety Mode will also allow parents to restrict who can send their kid a direct message or turn off the option to direct message completely. They can also restrict the type of content children can see while using the app. Family Safety Mode is currently available in the UK, but it will roll out to other markets in the coming weeks.
