The new restrictions rolling out to users ages 13 to 17 in the coming months include a setting to choose who can watch minors’ videos and a private setting by default for videos made by 13- to 15-year-olds, according to Engadget.

On the direct messaging front, TikTok automatically will turn off DMs by default to new 16- to 17-year-olds’ accounts (or existing accounts who have never used DMs before). This means users will have to manually change the settings on who can message them before using the feature. Any user under 16 still cannot use the direct messaging feature.
