TikTok reveals new privacy settings for kids: What parents should know

Little TikTokkers will have a new experience on the popular app.

For all accounts created for kids ages 13-15, the default setting will automatically set to"private," a welcome change to this mom, who had to manually activate that setting when my kids got TikTok accounts a few months ago.With a private TikTok account, only approved followers can view videos, meaning the entire community of TikTok creators won't be able to view your child's videos unless the"private account" setting is toggled off.

TikTok says allowing a child to choose the setting is a way to get them involved in understanding their online footprint."By engaging them early in their privacy journey, we can enable them to make more deliberate decisions about their online privacy," the press release reads.

Additionally, young TikTok users can no longer allow"everyone" to comment on their videos, only having the choice between"friends" and"no one" when it comes to who is able to communicate with them through their posts.Kids under 16 will no longer be able to post"duet" or"stitch" videos, which use parts of another user's video to create their own. And, videos created by users under 16 will not be available for download by another user.
