MUST READ FOR ALL PARENTS
Any Age Ok, so tiktok isn't really that bad. Many younger kids use it fine. If you are under 13, you aren't even able to share your videos, so nothing is posted. It is basically another camera app. This is why it's appropriate for any age. However, if your kid does what most kids under 13 do and lie about their age they will be able to post their video. With this they have the abilty to make their account private so only approved followers can see their videos. Note that ALL ACCOUNTS ARE PUBLIC BY DEFAULT, so your kid will need to switch their account to private if you want them to. If they have a public account, anyone can see their videos, but they can still block people who are hating. Safety isn't really a major issue, just make sure your kids know not to give out any private information (where they live, how old they are, their full names, etc) to strangers. I think it is fine for kids to put their first names in their bio, but putting their last could be risky. There is some swearing, but if your kids know not make videos using songs that swear that should fine (or if you don't mind them swearing). There is absolutly NO nudity or anything and if someone tries to post a video revealing innappropriate parts tiktok will delete. There is not really anything about sex and if your kid is young it will probably go over their head, but if they are older, I would give the "The Talk" if you haven't already.I would personally let my kid get this app, because a lot of kids use and you don't want them to be the social misfit but that's just my opinion. I reccomend you said rules with your child such as if they can get it or not, if they can lie about their age, if their account needs to be private, who they should block, if they can or can't swear, and stuff like that. I think tiktok is often misunderstood for a bad app when it's really not. I think this app is appropriate for kids of any age who know how to follow their parents rules.Its a really fun app.
