So many people have lost their lives to this abomination of an app.

TikTok is not a good app for younger people. Firstly, there is videos that contain sexual references, people in revealing clothing, and iffy stuff like boyfriends and girlfriends kissing. Second, a lot of the dares and stunts in the videos are actually dangerous and kids can see those people as role models. Third, a lot of the things you can see in TikTok are fake, misleading, or contain violence. The swearing is also a big problem, with people saying anything they want because there’s no rule that says you can’t swear. There might be a feature that removes iffy content, but it’s not going to 100 percent remove everything that is deemed inappropriate. Your kids could stumble across an inappropriate reference or phrase without realizing. Oh, and don’t even get me started in the comments because that’s a whole other issue. People say really obnoxious things, ranging from just a light tease to full on bullying. Your kids should not be exposed to this. It is a disgusting app. People will get mental health issues because they think they are not as pretty as the girls on TikTok. They should certainly NOT be on TikTok because (A) It’s addictive and (B) There is so much stuff that they do not need to see. Also there is a really disturbing TikTok video where someone dies live . People show their privates on it too. So many people have died because of TikTok, self harming, or because of them replicating dangerous TikTok stunts. Young people cannot be on TikTok. I mean, there is literally 9 year olds with accounts, showing their faces and everything! And parents are just letting the kids do this which is wrong . Also some parents on TikTok literally abuse 5heir kids in screen and everyone is just ok with it. Also it will steal your bank details and send them to china. I’m not being racist to Chinese ppl but that is true. My parents told me not to get TikTok and I got it for like a day and they were so right! This is the worst app. Do not download!!!

TikTok

It's the worst app I had ever seen, even more than µTorrent! First of all, it promoted gun violence treats as a challenge, and my entire school was scared for our safety, it promoted theft as a challenge, and also promoted slapping your teacher in their face. Someone died due to a challenge that I may not be able to say in this platform. It also decreases your attention span because they are short, and all you do is mindlessly scroll up. It is addictive, and may decrease your's or your child's grades. I once got exposed to adult content on that app. 100% DO NOT GET THIS APP, it will ruin your child's mind. I'm surprised TikTok themselves didn't shut themselves down. It caused a lot of deaths and it makes me fear for what my future will be.

Please do not download, very bad app and bad influence.

Tiktok is not a good app for children under the age of 18. There are sexual references, violent references, many inappropriate things that happen on it. It is no safe site for kids under 18, it may be the equivalent of pornography in some sorts. It trends are also very dangerous. At my school, many kids got in trouble stealing stuff because of tiktok trends. Parents, do you really want your children to ruin their lives over a petty app? Please consider the cons of this app, as they outweigh the pros. This app is dangerous to young children. They should never be exposed to the explicit material that is commonly present on tiktok.

Oh boy, Tiktok

As a teen, I know most of the kids everywhere use this. Although there is some good content, it’s almost impossible to find. You basically find people shoving beliefs down people’s thoughts, and that’s EVERYONE. Most popular influencers are kinda toxic and just want clout. I was on here for about a month, and I learned that: 1. Don’t visit most of the Middle East if you’re a part of the LGTBQ+ community, and 2. This app might make you feel bad about yourself including body image, thoughts, you know. Not particularly a great thing to someone who already struggles with that. You can download it, but I don’t recommend it. Also, I’m not sure if my family is just paranoid, but if’s from China, and they have some interesting stuff going on over though. Are they tracking you? Likely. Is Google also tracking you. Also likely.

Cringe

I hate the app, I cant go out in public without some 10 year olds with "pop its" and doing a tik tok dance or saying a song is from tik tok. There is innapropiate content on the app. Overall just a horrible app.

I am 11 years old but i think TikTok is a really bad idea for anyone under 17 years old. It makes you feel uncomfortable and gives you sexul thoughts. Parents, do not lets your kids get this. You can maybe lets a mature 15 or 16 year old, but just avoid it.

Don't bother. Promotes vandalism, swearing, and sexual content

I have to admit that a few months ago I was pretty mad that my parents wouldn't let me get it, but now seeing what it really is, it's existence is honestly just sad. THE BAD STUFF: A 15 year old got ARRESTED for pulling a TikTok promoted Devious Lick of pulling a toilet out of a bathroom stall at his school. There are sexual lyrics, dances, and images, as well as depictions of smoking, vaping, and drugs. The language is INSANE. Kids get addicted, learn terrible lies, and start to feel like they're bodies aren't good enough because they're different than the "pretty girls on TikTok." THE GOOD STUFF: You can learn about cool art trends, food hacks, clothing trends, and other fun skills. People find new hobbies. OTHER STUFF: The dances are cringy and depressing, and it's all anyone talks about. People are posting mindless gaming videos. Overall, just a really disappointing app. Don't bother.

Should be banned or made 18+

Tik Tok is not good for you at all if you are under the age of 18. To much innappropriate content that isn't good for kids. I'm 13 and i used to have this app, and i regret that i ever searched for "Tik Tok" on Google play. There was some disturbing content like sexual content, profanity, innappropriate music, kids my age using drugs, racist and sexist jokes, and hateful and abusive content. I am the only one in my class that does not have tik tok. All my friends used to be cool until they turned 12. They got tik tok and they have changed a lot. They are now constantly cussing, saying innappropriate jokes, singing innappropriate songs, and stealing stuff from the school which they say it's a challenge called the "devious lick" I can't believe that this application is teaching you to steal from school property. I also had a friend that was a girl. She used to be really kind and respectful, until she turned 12, when she got tik tok. She now constantly cusses, is disrepectful, she wears all Black and claims to be "emo" and uses the word "baddie" to describe herself. She once said " kill all men" and i asked her where she got that phrase from, and she said tik tok. If youre a parent and reading this, please do not let your Child on this app. If youre a kid reading , i dont recommend this app at all. It will ruin your personality and put garbage in your mind, and it will ruin your friendships. ( And yes i Know i sound like a parent lol )
