Myth vs Facts

Douyin offers educational content, limits screen time, and creates a positive experience for teens, while TikTok does not.

Douyin and TikTok are separate apps that are run by separate teams and serve separate markets. Some reports have compared the Douyin experience for users under age 14 to the over 18 experience on TikTok. This is not a reasonable comparison. TikTok is a platform for users aged 13 and over in Europe. TikTok users 17 and younger now have a default screen time limit of 60 minutes. TikTok also provides Family Pairing, a suite of tools families can use to help limit content and screen time in a way that makes sense for them.
