Parents may now manage their child’s TikTok account using a brand-new function called Family Pairing. This connects two versions and enables parents to modify some TikTok settings for their children. And we’ll show how to activate Family Pairing on TikTok in this article.
TikTok said in February that it was introducing new parental controls to keep children safe while using the service. These included the Family Safety Mode function, which enables parents to connect their TikTok accounts to their children’s. Initially, only the UK was given access to this.
However, the capability to join two TikTok accounts is currently available globally. Family Pairing has replaced Family Safety Mode as the name for the function, which remains the same.
As a parent of a teen, access your TikTok profile page and press the three dots option in the top-right to activate Family Pairing. Tap Family Pairing under Digital Wellbeing. A QR code will appear on your screen after following the steps.
On your child’s phone, follow the same procedures while selecting “Teen” when TikTok asks, “Who is using this TikTok account?” Then, to connect the two accounts, scan the QR code on your phone. You will also be notified if your child disconnects the accounts from one another.
After Family Pairing is configured, parents can modify a few options. This includes limiting the amount of time your child spends on TikTok every day, the visibility of stuff that isn’t appropriate for their age, and the people who can give them direct messages.
As a side note, TikTok will start blocking Direct Messages for accounts registered to users under 16 on April 30, 2020. This is done to safeguard young TikTok users, some of whom have previously faced unwanted attention from more professional users.
