TikTok Launches Family Pairing Feature

 

Though almost everyone can enjoy the content their irrespective of age, parents are not too happy about this platform as children water too much time on it. While acknowledging the concerns of parents regarding this, TikTok has implemented two changes in its platforms. Firstly, the company has announced a new feature called Family pairing. This feature gives more control to parents helping them with selecting the type of content they want their children to watch on the platform.  Secondly, TikTok has disabled Direct messages for users under 16 years of age.

While announcing these features, TikTok said:

 

“While Direct Messaging can be an amazing way to make new friends and connections. User safety is paramount. Starting April 30, TikTok will be taking existing protections one step further as relates to younger members of our community, and automatically disabling Direct Messages for registered accounts under the age of 16.”
