TikTok is getting out of control day after day as more and more users are hopping on the bandwagon.

In fact, it was found that more individuals had downloaded TikTok as compared to Instagram! However, due to the implementation of its new policy, the application is deleting accounts.

Users under the age of 13 or users who have put in the wrong birthdate in which they are being shown as under 13 are now locked out of their accounts. In order to access them, these users will have to provide proof of being 13+ by submitting ID documentation.

TikTok had their policy revised as many parents were unhappy of their children’s videos being shared on the social media platforms exposing their data.

In a statement, they said:

Beginning today, this additional app experience now allows us to split users into age-appropriate TikTok environments, in line with FTC guidance for mixed audience apps.

The new environment for younger users does not permit the sharing of personal information, and it puts extensive limitations on content and user interaction. Both current and new TikTok users will be directed to the age-appropriate app experience, beginning today.
