If you are a TikTok user you know it can be addicting and take up way more time than you planned. I am guilty of watching it at night before bed and getting the TikTok video telling me to stop watching because I have been on the app for too long. Now sometimes I listen and go to bed, but majority of the time I will swipe past it as soon as I see the guy come up on my screen. TikTok is trying to come up with different ways to get people to realize how much time they are spending on the app so they started a screen time control tool.
TikTok has announced the addition of a number of new features aimed at preventing users from becoming absorbed in the service’s endless feed of addicting short-form videos. After using the app for a prolonged, user-defined period of time, a new tool will display a reminder, adding a new protection to the existing daily limitations. If a teen (aged 13 to 17) spends more than 100 minutes in the app in a single day, they will be requested to use the screen time control tool, says the The Verge.
TikTok is also introducing a new screen time dashboard, which displays an overview of app usage. The total time the application has been used, a breakdown of day and night use, and a daily counter for the amount of time each user has spent on TikTok are all included in the statistics.
The launch of TikTok’s additional features follows the roll out of similar tools to other apps, which are aimed at helping users control their time spent on social media and other entertainment apps. On iOS and Android, Apple and Google both allow app limitations to be set.
