TikTok has become a global phenomenon with millions of users worldwide. The short-form, the video-sharing app has become a major hit amongst people of all ages including children. Just like everything on the internet, TikTok too contains some content that is not appropriate for the audience of some age groups. To tackle this issue, some form of parental control must be executed to prevent the viewing of inappropriate content. We'll show you steps to make TikTok a bit safer for your child by giving you the control over what your child watches and for how long.

A new page comes up with two options:  First one being, Screen time management, which will let you limit the time spent on the app by restricting it to the time allowed by you beyond which a passcode is required which is set by you. The second option, restricted mode, prevents the appearance of inappropriate content and can only be turned off a passcode set by you.

Select 'screen time management' and then set the time limit by selecting the ‘time limit’ option and then select ‘Turn on Screen Time Management’
