TikTok Adds Custom Screen Time Limits for Teens

TikTok has updated its Family Pairing control with new features intended to aid teenagers in better managing their screen time and enhancing their online experience. The action is a part of TikTok’s ongoing initiatives to support its users’ positive digital experiences.

Customized daily screen time limits are one of the new features that enable parents to set various time limits every day in accordance with their family’s routine. The mute notifications feature enables parents to set a schedule for notifications to be turned off for teens aged 13 to 15 from 9:00 pm onwards and for those aged 16 to 17 from 10:00 pm onwards. The screen time dashboard provides a summary of the amount of time spent on TikTok and how many times the app was opened.

In order to inform parents and teenagers about the new features, TikTok is also collaborating with content producers and industry experts. Users may also get in-app support to learn how to use the Family Pairing feature and the latest improvements.

TikTok will now automatically set the screen time limit for users under the age of 18 to 60 minutes per day, in accordance with studies from the Digital Wellbeing Lab. Users must input a passcode in order to access the app for longer than 60 minutes.

TikTok has prioritized families’ best interests in addition to encouraging pleasant digital experiences for its users by improving its parental controls, increasing policy transparency, bolstering the Safety Center, and working with other safety organizations.

The most recent changes to TikTok show the company’s dedication to providing all of its customers, particularly minors, with a secure and fun platform. TikTok is fostering a safer and more positive online environment by empowering families to control their screen time and encourage good digital habits.
