TikTok, the popular short-video platform, has introduced a new safety feature to its applications. The company has introduced device management, which will allow users to have complete control over their account.
With this feature, users will be able to end sessions or remove their respective accounts from other devices from the app itself. This allows better safety of the account and it will certainly help to avoid the misuse of any user accounts.
“TikTok constantly promotes a safe and positive app experience for its over 200 million users in India by offering them in-app tools and educational content to equip them with all the information they need to have the best possible experience while showcasing their creativity,” the company said in a statement.
The new device management feature is an addition to TikTok’s suite of 13 safety features. The company claims that features like age gate, restricted mode, screen time management, comments filter and safety centre are helping users to safely use the platform. The company also revealed that it has released a series of educational videos in both Hindi and English languages, which will help users to understand and learn the workings of the industry with 14 safety features.
The company is taking some serious steps to improve the safety and security of the users on its platforms after it was banned in India for showing some illicit content. The whole matter came into limelight when a petition was filed in the Madras High Court citing to block the application from the country. However, the app is back again after the ban was lifted by Madras High Court.
