TikTok has quickly become one of the world’s most downloaded apps. There are now around a billion TikTok users worldwide, almost half of whom (41%) are in the 16–24 age bracket. TikTok itself advises a minimum age of 13 to access the platform, but reports suggest that some children as young as 10 use it.
