Popular video-sharing app TikTok has today announced the launch of its ‘Device Management’ feature, that is targeted to enhance the safety of the users. According to the company, the feature enables users to have complete control of their account. TikTok says that safety is one among its key priorities and with the launch of its device management feature, it is taking its security initiative forward.
With the help of its device management feature, users will be able to end sessions or remove their accounts from other devices from within the TikTok app. This feature will help users manage their safety better and ensure that the user accounts are not getting misused.
The company has further said that it has constantly made efforts to promote a safe and positive app experience for its over 200 million users in India. The efforts made include offering its users in-app tools and educational content so that they have all the information that they need to have the best possible experience while uploading their videos. With the new feature, they will be empowered to manage their online presence in a safe way and choose which sessions they wish to end.
This feature will particularly be useful to someone who forgot to log out of their account while changing smartphones.
We should mention that ‘Device Management’ is an addition to the company’s existing 13 leading safety features, that TikTok says that it launched to protect users in India. These features include age gate, restricted mode, screen time management, comments filter and safety centre and they help users to safely upload their creative videos on the platform.
In addition to this, the company has also released a series of educational videos in Hindi and English to help users understand and learn how exactly these safety features work. The videos are easy to understand and they come with useful information on safety guidelines and tools that are aimed at the Indian user base.
TikTok has also said that it embraces diversity and celebrates trends and announced that its user base in India has now gone over 200 million.
We should mention that a few months back, TikTok faced a ban in India and was taken off Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. The company was then told to monitor its content better so that there is no porn on the platform and children and teens using the platform stay protected. Only after it agreed to comply with it was the ban on the app lifted.
