Without a doubt, TikTok has become one of the most used social networks thanks to its functionality. Not to mention that the team behind the development of this application never stops adding new functions that will allow you to get the most out of its use.

Also, if you have already read the 6 tricks and functions to be an expert on the platform, any user can be the king among his followers. And that is exactly the problem with this social network: that it is sometimes almost addictive. Not to mention the fact that the app is designed for people to spend a lot of time on it.

For example, the infinite scroll (or scroll) invites you to watch videos without stopping. And the company wants to modify that and has announced through its official blog a series of changes where this well-known feature on TikTok can be disabled.

TikTok will allow users to disable infinite scroll

Let’s be realistic, if a user uses TikTok, they will still know that infinite scrolling makes them spend much more time looking at the mobile screen. It is precisely on this bad habit that the application wants to act.

It must be remembered that in China the protection of mental health is taken very seriously, even more so with the rise of addicts to certain social networks and video games, which is why TikTok has preferred to prevent rather than regret.

That way, there will be a new section in Settings where TikTok can notify the user to stop watching videos once the time that has been set runs out.

Another novelty will be that TikTok will offer much more data on the time that a user spends in the application, with graphs where you can see the hours that one is using the social network.

In addition, minors, between 13 and 17 years old, will receive a notification if they spend more than 100 minutes a day in the app, to remind them that there are time control tools so that they do not exceed them again. Without a doubt, a smart move since from the memory of the regulations in China, there are more and more games that restrict the use of minors.

As for the release date of this update, TikTok has announced that it will be coming soon, so users will have to wait a bit as it will be a global release.

Good news for users, no doubt, as this new feature will give them more control over the time they spend on TikTok. Likewise, the company shows that it cares about the health of its consumers to prevent more citizens from becoming addicted.

How to control who can interact with you on TikTok

One of the very helpful features that TikTok has is that the user can decide who interacts with oneself; that is, who can comment on the contents of one, react to them or if these videos can be downloaded.

All these options are concentrated in the same Control Panel and always offer three possibilities:

– All.

– Friends (users who follow you and those you follow).

– or Nobody.

To configure this function, follow these steps:

1. Enter the app and go to the profile (Me), tapping on the icon in the lower right corner.

2. Tap on the three dots in the upper right corner.

3. Enter ‘Privacy’, to then access the ‘Security’ section.

4. Now if the user scrolls down the screen they will find a section with 7 parameters.

5. Select what you want in each of the highlights and that’s it.
