TikTok rolled out a Youth Portal this week to give teens and parents a single destination for safety resources, best practices and guides to the video-creation application’s tools.

The new Youth Portal will roll out globally in over 15 languages, including English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Thai, and more educational resources will be added in the coming months.

The initiative follows last month’s addition of a Family Pairing feature that enables parents to link their accounts to those of their teens, determine how much time their teens can spend on the app each day and control content they can see and who they can exchange direct messages with.

The Internet Security section of the Youth Portal includes information on creating secure passwords, how often they should be changed, what should be kept private and detecting suspicious behavior.
