In China, children will only be allowed to be on the TikTok workalike Douyin for 40 minutes a day.
The rules will affect children under 14, who have been authenticated using their real names, and who will be able to access it between 06:00 and 22:00.
This move comes against the backdrop of the Chinese government’s attempt to crack down on time spent on social media by children.
According to Douyin’s user agreement, there is no minimum age on the platform, but under 18s must obtain the consent of a legal guardian. On sister app TikTok the minimum age is 13.
