TikTok is in effect the replacement for Musical.ly and this app seems to have developed a big following in the last few weeks. It is not “more dangerous” than some other apps, but to help keep our children safe it would be wise to draw your attention to current advice.
Parents are advised – as with other apps to help their child review their privacy settings and to be aware that: “Even with a private account, profile information – including profile photo, username, and bio – will be visible to all users.
Counsel your teen not to reveal personal information such as age, address, or phone number in his/her profile.”
