The settlement also requires that TikTok comply with COPPA in the future and produce all videos of children under the age of 13.
The company is already taking action, albeit at a fundamental level. This creates an age limit that limits data collection and prevents 12-year-old viewers from posting or sharing videos ̵
1; they can only track clips and users. TechCrunch noted that children are likely to torch about their age around the gate, but this at least confirms the presence of COPPA and gives parents the ability to control access to a series of online safety videos (below ) to protect younger fans. The light-hearted clips help users deal with unwanted messages, enable restricted mode, observe community rules, and set screen-time options. They are currently only available in the US and UK, but they and other videos will be available in other countries. TikTok knows that its audience may not know how to deal with harassment and other inappropriate behavior. This could help children (and their parents) to respond directly.
