Dear parents/ carers,


We have had some messages from parents regarding 'TikTok'. TikTok is a video-sharing platform where you can watch and create videos, and livestream. The app has an age-rating of 13+.

Below are some tips from the NSPCC to keep your children safe if using the app.

There are six security settings that can help you to keep TikTok safe for your child and prevent them seeing anything that might worry or upset them:

  1. Family Pairing 
    This allows you to connect your child’s account with your own. It gives you access to parental controls to help manage who they can speak to and how long they can spend on the app.
  2. Private account
    Setting your child’s account to private means that only approved followers will be able to watch their videos.
  3. Restricted mode
    This feature helps to filter out videos that may contain inappropriate or adult topics and stop them appearing on your child’s 'For You Page'.
  4. Comment filters
    Enable to manage who can comment on your child’s videos and stop inappropriate comments from appearing on their feed.
  5. Direct messages
    This can help them manage who can contact them privately on the app. You can choose who can send them direct messages by selecting ‘Friends only’ or ‘No one’.
  6. Daily screen time
    This setting allows you manage how long your child can spend on the app. You can set a daily time limit, and once it’s up you’ll need to enter a passcode to keep using the platform.
