The topic of privacy and security is always very hot, especially when it comes to applications widely used by children and adolescents. After being fined 5.7 million for violating children's privacy rights, TikTok, New1000 has released a feature that gives parents more control over their children's accounts.
It's called Family Pairing It allows parents to remotely connect to their children's profiles and disable receiving messages, set usage time limits, and enable the defined "limited content" mode to hide content that may be inappropriate. In short, it is a function that further enhances the Family Safety Mode announced a few months ago.
The big difference is that Family Pairing doesn't require physical access to the device which, on the contrary, can be managed remotely. For mating, children must accept the link of their parents who – in turn – will have to scan the QR code in the section digital well-being account they want to check. However, children have the option to disable the feature, but in that case the parent will receive a notification and can request the connection always remotely.
Finally, TikTok is introducing another novelty aimed at younger users. Starting on 30 April, the exchange of messages can only take place between young people with over the age of 16. All this in order to avoid and counter any misuse of the tool.
