In an interview that has resurfaced online, TikTok CEO, Shou Zi Chew, has revealed that he doesn’t allow his children to use TikTok.
The interview conducted in March 2023 comes as a shock to some social media users as to why some parents allow their children to use the app whilst its CEO has banned his children from accessing the app.
Shou Zi Chew has two children, ages eight and six. He believes that his children are far too young for the social networking platform.
During the interview, he stressed that children under the age of adolescence must be supervised while using the program.
Chew insisted that it was a legal obligation for children under the age of 13 to have a separate app. However, he also stated that he would not relax the restriction so that children may use TikTok.
The CEO of the social networking app said that there were age limitations when registering for the platform. He goes on to say that such restrictions were more stringent in the United States than in other countries.
In the conversation, the Singaporean entrepreneur discussed a feature dubbed ‘Family Pairing’ that allows parents to watch more of their children’s behavior for increased safety. More from him can be found in the video below.
