TikTok sets a 60-minute daily screen limit for users under 18

The social platform TikTok announced new features for teens and families:

  • Including a 60-minute daily screen limit for all users under 18 years old.
  • A reminder for users that turned off the 60-minute limit but spend more than 100 minutes. Parents will be able to control it, as well as add a passcode and extend this period to 30 minutes at a time
  • Sleep reminder that reminds users to log off and sleep

The team consulted the current academic research and experts from the Digital Wellness Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital to select the 60-minute limit.

Parents will also be able to set more limits and mute notifications for their teens. Currently, users under 15 do not receive push notifications after 9 PM, and users aged 16-17 have them disabled after 10 PM.

All users have a significant problem with screen time, which is why TikTok is introducing Sleep reminders to everyone. A pop-up reminder that reminds users to log off, put their devices away, and go to bed can be programmed. 😌😌
