Chinese children will now only be allowed to use the TikTok app for 40 minutes a day. ByteDance has introduced a rule that Chinese children can now only use the app for 40 minutes per day.
In Tiktok’s Chinese version of Duin, children under the age of 14 will automatically go into ‘youth mode’ and can only use the app for 40 minutes per day.
Along with this, the company has launched a new app called Xiao Su Jing (Little Fun Star), which is a short video app similar to TikTok with a limited topic.
This also has a time limit of 40 minutes, but in this app, children can only like videos, but they cannot upload and share.
With the time limit, Chinese children cannot use the Dooin app between 10pm and 6am. This feature is applicable only for users who provide real name and age.
For that reason, Duin has requested parents to register their children’s real names and ages. ByteDance has also added educational content on subjects like science, history, and mathematics to Duin.
Jiao Su Jing only provides complete educational content. This change will not make a difference to many users because according to the South China Morning Post, only 0.34 percent of Duin’s users are under the age of 12. Similarly, 4.18 percent of users are in the age group of 13 to 19 years.
