TikTok is now launching a new feature that allows parents to set a restriction on their kids account. They named this feature as Family Pairing and this feature will help parents to link their kids account with themself, parents will able to disable direct message of their children account, they will also restrict some adult based content and fix the time of screen limits.
This is such a great step from Tiktok officials and this feature will be included in next upcoming update of TikTok. They developed this feature because last year in February 2019, Tiktok company paid 5.7$ million because of alleged violations of children privacy law and allowing 13 years old kid to creating account without Parents permission.
This is the main reason that why Tiktok add screen limits and allows parents to control over the app and their kid account. Earlier this year Tiktok named this feature as Family Safety Mode.
When a kid of 16 or under 16 get a message or try to text someone then Tiktok will appear this message on the screen.
After the next update of Tiktok, Parents can easily control their kids account easily when their accounts links with each other.
Parents have to agree their kids to link their account after the new update. For the linking of their kids account, parents need to scan the QR-code of their kids account that will available under digital section of kid’s account.
If kids don’t want their parents to see their messages then kids can easily disable this feature anytime.
When the kids disable this feature then their parents will received a notification regarding disconnection and they will ask you to rescan the QR code if they want.
