TikTok Global Community Guidelines

Last Update: Tuesday, August 28, 2018

TikTok is a place for your creativity and expression. It’s also a global community of people looking for a fun, welcoming experience.

The TikTok Community Guidelines, which we update from time to time, are an important code of conduct for a safe and friendly environment. Violation of the guidelines may result in your account and/or content being removed. In addition, users must also follow their local laws. We reserve the right to monitor and report content to authorities, as permitted by applicable law.

TikTok Community Guidelines

Our policies and guidelines exist to foster trust, respect, and a positive environment for everyone in this community. We trust all users to respect the community and keep TikTok fun and welcoming for everyone.

TikTok is simply NOT the place to post, share, or promote any of the following, including:

Harmful or dangerous content

When you use TikTok you are joining a global community. Don’t post or share content that could harm other users or encourage them to harm themselves – whether through physical, emotional, financial, or legal harm.

Graphic or shocking content

TikTok is not the place for graphic, violent, shocking, or sensational content. If you wouldn’t show this content to your parents or children, please don’t post it here.

Discrimination or hate speech

TikTok is an inclusive community. It is not ok to attack or incite violence against other users.

Nudity or sexual activity

Our community is not the place for sexually explicit content or content intended for sexual gratification. If it isn’t something suitable to be done or shown in public view, don’t post it.

Child safety infringement

TikTok takes child safety with the utmost seriousness. If we become aware of content that sexually exploits, targets, or endangers children, we may comply with law enforcement or report cases, as appropriate.

Harassment or cyberbullying

We work hard to promote a positive environment and an abuse-free experience for our users. Please keep your interactions civil and treat all users with respect.

Impersonation, spam, or other misleading content

Our community values high-quality, engaging content. Content or behavior that is spammy, fake, or misleading will be removed.

Intellectual property

TikTok is a place for creativity and expression that is unique and original.

Other malicious activity

In addition to the content and behavior outlined above, our policies prohibit activity that undermines the TikTok service.

If you see content that you believe violates any of the Community Guidelines, please report it so we can review and take appropriate action.
