A new screen time dashboard will also give users data about how much time they are spending on TikTok, including summaries of their daily time spent on the platform, the number of times they opened the app and a breakdown of daytime and nighttime usage. Users can opt-in for weekly notifications to review their screen time dashboard.
The company also said it will issue users between the ages of 13 and 17 “digital well-being prompts” when they have used the app for more than 100 minutes in a single day. The prompts will “remind them of our screen time limit tool the next time they open the app,” Furlong wrote. (It’s unclear how TikTok decided on 100 minutes as the threshold for screen time intervention for teens. TikTok did not immediately respond to a request for comment.)
