On many social media platforms, the majority of users are under the age of 18 and hence minor protection is needed on almost every social media platform. According to its safety center, TikTok targets its “full TikTok experience” for users aged 13 and above. Severe safety measures were taken in the year 2021 by the app in order to protect minors by making the account private of all the users under the age of 16 and not letting them change their age once it is set.
