TikTok is making some modifications to the app’s privacy settings, focusing on delivering a safer socializing environment for teenagers of different age groups.
As a result, when registering on the app, users who are between 13 and 15 years old will have limited access to their accounts, causing greater control over who can comment or view the posted videos, causing only people added to the friends to see the posts.
In addition, the profile does not appear in the suggestions section, making the addition a process totally dependent on the account owner. And, even if the profile becomes public, everyone’s comment option will be disabled, a setting that can also be done manually so that followers don’t take action.
For those aged 16, the restriction is related to sharing or replying to someone else’s post, as well as the ability to download videos. For those between 16 and 17 years old.
In addition to the aforementioned option, TikTok also prohibits cutting parts of other creators’ videos for addition to themselves made using the Switch feature, as well as Duet mode, making some highly popular publications not easily reproduced by teenagers.
