Tik Tok changes the rules and takes care of the teenagers
The Tik Tok profile of any user under 16 will automatically switch to a private profile, even if the new year has left it public.
Other users will be prohibited from downloading videos from the profiles of children under 16 years of age.
Young people aged 13-15 will choose their friends who want to comment on their profile and will also have the opportunity to make the videos public if they want.
However, the account of any person under 16 years of age will not appear as a suggestion for others. These rules will take effect today.
These decisions were made by Tik Tok following the frequent allegations of poor rules of this app which is in fact mostly used by teenagers and young adults.
