TikTok imposes a screen time limit



This is an initiative that will delight parents of teenagers: TikTok will immediately impose a time limit on its users under 18, reports the magazine Forbes. The cleaver will fall off after 60 minutes of daily use.

Don’t open the champagne right away: users will be able to enter a code to continue watching the short videos that scroll by at breakneck speed on the platform. The idea, however, is to force them to take action to continue using the application, rather than being absorbed by it.

This new default setting will be phased in over the next few weeks. The decision was taken in a context where the intensive use of TikTok raises concerns about its impact on young people, as was the case for all those that preceded it such as Facebook, SnapChat or Instagram.

TikTok is one of the most popular – if not the most popular – apps among teens right now.
