TikTok, currently the front line of viral video content, is a social media app that allows people to record, edit, and share short videos. However, if you find sexual, violent or otherwise inappropriate content in the app, you can easily submit a report.
Report a TikTok video
While browsing through the videos in your TikTok feed, you can view content that violates some of the app's rules or community guidelines or even laws. To report a video, tap "Share" in the lower right corner.
Tap "Report" in the following menu
Select the reason for your report – you may need to choose a more specific reason on the following screen:
You can then give screenshots and describe why you are reporting the video. When you are done, tap & # 39; Send & # 39 ;.
As stated on the final report page, contact your local law enforcement agency if there is an immediate physical danger.
If the video is the right content that just doesn't interest you, tap and hold in the middle of the video until a small menu appears. From there, tap "Not interested."
You can also tap "More" to hide all video & # 39; s for that person or with that sound (background music or audio).
Report a TikTok account
If a full account regularly publishes inappropriate content or misleading information, you can also report it. To do this, tap the Account button (the avatar of the account).
Tap the icon with the three dots at the top right of the Account page. Select & # 39; Report & # 39; and then select the reason why you are reporting the account. Again, you may need to choose a more specific reason on the following screen:
You can then provide screen shots and a description of your report. When you are done, tap "Send".
Report a response to TikTok
Part of the engagement aspect of TikTok responds to responses to video & # 39; s. Like most places on the internet, people sometimes leave annoying or inappropriate messages.
To report a specific comment, continue to tap and hold until a small menu appears. Select "Report" and specify the reason (and another more specific reason) for your report.
You can then add additional comments or screen shots. When done, tap & # 39; Send & # 39; to send TikTok the report.
Part of the allure of social media is the nature of the & # 39; Wild West & # 39 ;. Fortunately, these tools (and more, such as Family Safety Mode) can help you control the type of content you see on TikTok.
