  • TikTok is readying new parental controls to monitor teenagers’ screen time.
  • Parents will soon have a customizable daily screen time limit for their teens.
  • A new dashboard will be included which shows the total time spent using TikTok and the number of times it has been opened.

As TikTok continues to consume the lives of many young adults, the platform is introducing new ways parents can help monitor their children and limit their app usage.

From a TikTok Press release, in the coming weeks, all accounts registered for a user under the age of 18 will have a screen time limit of one hour by default. The platform explains that a teenager’s caregiver can customize their daily screen time limit based on the day of the week or scenario (like a holiday). TikTok explains that while this one-hour limit will be set automatically for users under 13, a parent or guardian will need to enter a password to add an additional 30 minutes.
