Social Media platform TikTok has announced changes to its privacy settings designed to protect younger users, reports telecompaper. Accounts registered to 13-15 year olds will default to private, meaning that only someone approved by the user can follow them. The ‘everyone’ comment setting will be removed for younger users, along with ‘Duet’ and ‘Stitch’ settings, and they will only be able to download content created by users over 16. The changes were introduced on the 13th January, says the website.
