tick, which is currently the first line of viral video content, is a social application that allows people to record, edit and share short videos. However, if you find sexual, violent, or inappropriate content in the app, you can easily make a report.
How to report a TikTok video
As you scroll through the videos on your TikTok stream, you may see content that violates any number of application rules, or Community guidelines, or even laws. To report a video, tap ‘Share’ in the lower right corner.
In the next menu, tap «Report».
Select the reason for the report; you may need to choose a more specific reason on the next screen.
You can then provide screenshots and describe why you are reporting the video. When you’re done, tap «Send.»
As mentioned on the final report page, if anyone is in immediate physical danger, contact your local police.
If the video is appropriate content that you are not interested in, press and hold in the middle of the video until a small menu appears. From there, tap «I don’t care.»
You can also tap «More» to hide all the videos of that person or with that sound (background music or audio).
How to report a TikTok account
If an entire account regularly posts inappropriate content or misleading information, you can report it. To do this, tap the Account button (account avatar).
Touch the three-dot icon at the top right of your account page. Select ‘Report’, then select why you’re reporting your account. Again, you may need to choose a more specific reason on the next screen.
You can then provide screenshots and a description of your report. When you’re done, tap «Send.»
Report a comment on TikTok
Part of TikTok’s involvement aspect is the response to video comments. Like most places on the Internet, people sometimes leave ugly or inappropriate messages.
To report a specific comment, press and hold until a small menu appears. Select «Report» and provide the reason (and a more specific reason) for your report.
Then you can add additional comments or screenshots. When you’re done, tap «Submit» to send the report to TikTok.
Part of the appeal of social media is its «wild western» nature. Fortunately, these tools (and many others, such as Family safety mode) can help you adjust the type of content you see on TikTok.
