TikTok, the world’s leading short video platform, has been an advocate of online safety. Ever since its launch, TikTok has teamed up with several organisations across the world to emphasise the importance of online safety, reporting abusive content, and parental guidance.

India, too, has seen TikTok’s active participation in promoting safety. Earlier this year, TikTok launched the ‘#SafeHumSafeInternet’ campaign to promote the importance of online safety. The TikTok team has also introduced a Safety Center, which is localized website that has safety policies, tools and resources to help users navigate the online world and TikTok in various languages ranging from Tamil to Odiya.

Recently, TikTok also announced the launch of ‘Device Management’, its latest safety feature that enables users to have complete control of their account. Using this feature, TikTok users will be able to end sessions or remove their accounts from other devices from within the TikTok app to better manage their safety of their account. This feature will help avoid the misuse of user accounts.
