About this report
TikTok is committed to responding to law enforcement requests for user information in a manner that respects the privacy and other rights of our community members. Any request we receive is carefully reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Our policies and procedures govern how TikTok handles and responds to law enforcement requests and require that TikTok disclose user data only where a request is based on a valid legal process or in emergency circumstances.
In limited emergency situations, TikTok will disclose user information without legal process when we have reason to believe, in good faith, that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent the imminent risk of death or serious physical injury to any person. For more on our policies and practices, please see our Law Enforcement Data Request Guidelines.
The sections below provide insights into the the volume and type of requests for user information we received and whether data was produced.
