(Pocket-lint) – TikTok will be rolling out its promised new age restriction system in the coming weeks, with a Content Levels feature designed to protect children from mature or potentially dangerous clips.
I’ll be showcasing an “early release” of the feature that will prevent users between the ages of 13 and 17 from accessing videos labeled as having mature or “complex” themes.
TikTok will mark content with a maturity score itself, and if a younger member tries to access something deemed to be 18 or older, they will be blocked from viewing it.
“When we detect that a video contains mature or complex themes, for example fictional scenes that may be too scary or intense for younger audiences, a maturity score will be assigned to the video to prevent less 18 years of watching her through the TikTok experience,” he wrote in a recent blog post.
It’s video game week in association with Nvidia GeForce RTX.
PC Gaming Week in association with Nvidia GeForce RTX is happening all this week on Pocket-lint.
“We have been focused on safeguarding the teen experience first and in the coming months we plan to add a new feature to provide detailed content filtering options to our entire community to that she can enjoy more of what she loves.”
Content levels appear to be in addition to the self-moderation feature that TikTok is testing with storytellers. This will allow them to mark their own videos as unsuitable for children.
