Three TikTok features every parent should know


When it comes to parenting a teenís digital life, daunting is one word that comes to mind. But, it doesnít have to be. TikTok offers parents and caregivers a robust set of tools to create an enjoyable and safe experience thatís right for their family. This includes our Family Pairing features which let parents and guardians link their TikTok account to their teenís to enable a variety of content and privacy settings.

1. Screen time management: When using Family Pairing, you have the ability to set limits on how long your teen can spend on the TikTok app each day, to help them have a balanced online experience.

2. Setting comment filters: You also have the ability to choose who is allowed to comment on your teenís videos (either friends or no one), putting you in the driverís seat in managing who can engage with your teen on TikTok.

3. Direct messages: In addition to restricting who can comment on your teenís videos, you can also manage who can send your teen direct messages, or you can turn off direct messaging completely. With safety in mind, we also have many default policies and controls on messaging. For example, direct messaging is automatically turned off for users under 16, and off-platform images and videos cannot be sent in messages.

You can find these features and more helpful resources in TikTokís Safety Center. TikTokís mission is to inspire creativity and bring joy. We want everyone to have a safe and positive app experience, especially young people. Weíre committed to doing our part to keep the internet safe, and weíll continue to develop features with community safety in mind.
