Parent News: TikTok Tightens Privacy Features for Younger Users


Who has a kid who LOVES TikTok? Heck, who doesn't?! I love it too, but have had my own concerns about privacy for my kids. There's some good news for you if you have felt like me on this TikTopic, because TikTok has finally implemented new privacy features for their younger users. For users 13 to 15 years old the default privacy setting will be set to private. Only someone who the user approves as a follower can see their videos. Teens can change this setting to public.

Users 15 and younger will have direct messaging restricted and will not be allowed to host live streams and users can not download videos made by someone who is 15 or younger.

In my opinion this is a step in the right direction. Do you think it's enough?
