How to keep your TikTok account safe and secure

How To’s

As it fosters a global community that thrives on creativity and expression, TikTok, the world’s leading short video platform, launches a safety in-app quiz to equip users with online safety tips. Users who answer all the questions correctly get to win special prizes from TikTok.

As a platform that celebrates trends and embraces diversity, TikTok has become the preferred platform for expression, given its lowered boundaries for sharing, creating, discovering — all made easy on mobile. TikTok is committed to helping make its millions of users feel safe and comfortable within the community, which is why it is continuously enhancing and updating its policies, tools, and resources to promote a positive and safe app environment.

The account safety quiz which is available in TikTok throughout EMEA, Europe and Asia, incorporates questions that highlight a few of the most important ideas on general account safety including:

  • Set up your account with a strong password
  • Don’t share your account information with anyone
  • Be aware of phishing, suspicious email or website

In addition to educational efforts, TikTok is launching new tools and initiatives to support the creation of a positive and safe in-app environment. Last year, TikTok launched a Safety Center dedicated to providing tips and resources to help users navigate a range of topics and build an online experience that feels safe and welcoming. In March this year, TikTok launched two new Digital Wellbeing features, Screen Time Management and Restricted Mode. Screen Time Management lets users decide how much time they want to spend on TikTok, while Restricted Mode limits the appearance of content that may not be appropriate for all audiences. The app will also introduce new upcoming features including:

 

  • Device Management: which will allow users to manage their login devices to prevent their accounts from being hacked
  • Revamped notification tab and notification controls, which will make users’ digital lives easier
