TikTok also serves adverts and recommendations which may not be suitable for children. Families will find it is difficult to contact TikTok to get videos taken down.

Even truthful 13-year-olds are then given an option to make their accounts public.

She disliked the way he went about it, she's not so so keen on the other guy in the photo below either.
