With its new Family Safety Toolkit, TikTok enables parents and teens to become better digital citizens, helping to create a safer internet for all.
“The DQ Institute is excited to work with TikTok, one of the top platforms influencing young minds today, in supporting families across the Southeast Asian region. According to the 2020 Child Online Safety Index, 64% of Southeast Asian youth have experienced at least one cyber-risk, such as cyberbullying, tech addition, and risky content and contact. With the COVID-19 pandemic sending more teens online, this number has increased – demanding online safety to be more critical than ever before. This is why the TikTok Family Safety toolkit is especially important. It empowers parents with simple and practical digital parenting tips to support their teens’ digital life, and empowers teens to constantly check and improve their digital citizenship skills in navigating TikTok – and all other apps – safely and responsibly.”
