TikTok Announces Rules For Children Under 14 In China

China continues to take steps to curb Internet addiction in children, and a major decision has been made on TikTok  after limiting the time it takes to play online games. Byte Dance, a company owned by TikTok, has announced TikTok new rules for children under the age of 14 in China.

A blog post from Byte Dance states that children under the age of 14 will now be able to access Devin (TikTok  is used by that name in China) through Youth Mode.

The company’s Youth Mode will limit the use of TikTok  for children under 14 to 40 minutes a day.

Similarly, children of this age will have access to this app only from 6 am to 10 pm.

Devine is almost the same app as TikTok  , but it is more rigorously scrutinized and has over 600 million monthly users.

Earlier, Byte Dance also implemented the rules for verifying the real name and age of the users while the users have to provide their phone number and other personal details.

“Through Youth Mode, we will have the opportunity to create great content for everyone, such as novels and interesting scientific experiments,” the company said in a blog post.

Earlier, at the end of August 2021, gaming platforms in China from Ten Cent to NetEase and others were instructed by the government to allow children to spend only one hour online from Friday to Sunday (on weekends) and on public holidays. Allow games to be played.

Under the new rules, people under the age of 18 will be allowed to play online games for only 3 hours a week.

Earlier in China, in 2019, the rules were limited to one and a half hours per day for children’s online games.
