TikTok is very popular with children, they make up over 40 percent of users. Moreover, the social network is also aimed at a children's audience. TikTok user must be over 13 years old. Children really spend a lot of time on TikTok. We will not argue here on the topic of whether TikTok is harmful to children. But the fact is that many parents are concerned that their children spend a lot of time on TikTok. This article is for you, dear parents ? How to block the TikTok app on your phone?

It’s really better for a child under 13 not to use TikTok, since such a restriction is imposed by the social network itself. If artificial intelligence calculates that the user is under 13 years old, then his account will be blocked in any case. Explain to your child that he is not allowed to sit on TikTok yet..

If you are still worried that the child will start using the social network, then you can take care of blocking. This can be done in several ways. Let's talk!

App Store

App stores such as Google Play and AppStore provide not only an installation function, but also a management function. Therefore, you can block this or that application directly from the store by setting parental controls. You need to do this on the child's smartphone. Consider the example of Google Play. How to block TikTok on Android?

  • Go to Google Play;
  • click on the account icon in the upper right corner;
  • in the menu that appears, click Settings ;

In the same window, you will see content categories for which you can select settings by age limit. For TikTok, select 12+. This is exactly the same function that will not allow downloading the social network.

Google also offers to install the Family Link application, a set of settings for parental control. In addition to application restrictions, it allows you to track the location of the child, as well as impose restrictions on the time of using the device..

On iPhone

How to block TikTok on iPhone? The iPhone has a feature Screen time , which limits the time you use the device as a whole, as well as individual applications. To apply Settings ,

TikTok usage time can be limited to any value from 1 minute to 24 hours. You can also apply different settings for each day of the week. For example, if you decide to allow your child to spend more time on the social network on weekends.

Note. Since you are applying the settings on the child's device, he can easily remove them. For this, a password protection function is provided. To install it, on the main Screen Time page, click Use password and enter the code..

On the computer

There is another way to block TikTok - add the IP address of the social network to the black list of the Internet filter. The Internet filter is downloaded separately. For example, SkyDNS.

Just add the TikTok domain (website) tiktok.com to the black list in the personal account of the service. You may also need the IP address of the social network. To find out the IP addresses of TikTok to block, use some online service for this.

If you are thinking about how to block TikTok on your phone forever, then know that this will not work. Any settings are subject to change and rollback.
