    TikTok plans to prohibit users under the age of 18 from live streaming.

    Published on

    Beginning next month, in November, the legal age requirement to live stream on TikTok will increase from 16 to 18. It’s not clear how TikTok plans to enforce its age-limit policies.

    The decision was made after a BBC News investigation revealed hundreds of live streams from Syrian refugee camps with minors begging for charity.

    TikTok’s terms of service state that users must “avoid the harm, reckless conduct, or manipulation” of kids on the platform and prohibit direct gift solicitation.

    TikTok instantly banned all of the accounts when BBC News uncovered the Syrian accounts exploiting minors to beg for donations, and the company later claimed that “this sort of content is not permitted on its platform and service.”
