TikTok accounts of users aged under 16 will now be changed to private, in a bid to improve child safety on the app.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media this means videos posted to these accounts will not be available to download and all followers will need to be approved first.
It comes a month after federal regulators ordered the social media giant to reveal how the app protects and processes children and teenagers.
