TikTok has recently tightened its privacy controls for under 16’s. TikTok is a social media platform that lets you create, share and discover 60 second videos. You can use music and effects to enhance your videos and you can also browse other people’s videos and interact with them. TikTok’s age rating is 13+ so it is not recommended for children under 13 years of age.
