  1. Brianna Wry says:

    I personally downloaded and had an account on Musically at the age of 11.

  2. Helena Bazzi says:

    Both of my brothers have downloaded the tik tok app before my parents and I knew what the app was.

  3. Caroline Beckham says:

    Not good for children

  4. Kelvin Muriuki says:

    I was not aware TikTok collects data from children.

  5. Saydie Handley says:

    A lot of the time young kids are on the app when they shouldn’t be without parental consent, and there are times when there’s mature content on there that they shouldn’t be seeing.

  6. Jacquelyn Aguirre says:

    Many children under the age of 10 use this app and some without parental consent. I didn’t know the age requirement was 13 because the app does not or did not require it.

  7. Kathryn Taylor says:

    I believe that TikTok is very unsafe with the way they present your personal information. I have been hacked about four times on this app and my number has been released. This needs to stop! It makes me nervous to post on the app and it’s no longer a way to express my creativity; rather, it has become an app that rays out all my personal information.

  8. Sarah says:

    I’ve had TikTok since it came out and used to be Musical.ly and I was at the age of 13 at the time. I don’t remember ever being asked for parent permission for being on the site. And I’m of age now, and TikTok has gotten pretty inappropriate in my opinion for 13 year olds.

  9. Olivia says:

    I think that the parent needs to be monitoring their kids’ phones so that they aren’t doing anything unsafe on their device. Posting content for the public to view at any age may be unsafe, but children 13 and under especially have little to no judgement.

  10. Zaira Mojica says:

    With everything going on around there world I feel more caution should be taken.

  11. Shaiara Bringinggood says:

    This is super unsafe for children & there are a lot of predators on that app

  12. Juan Gallegos says:

    I do agree with the settlement that my privacy was violated.

  13. katelynn x says:

    Tiktok is a disgusting website. Kids shouldn’t be on it. There are pedofiles, etc.

  14. Simrat Kaur says:

    There are more under 13-year-olds than over 13-year-olds on TikTok right now.

  15. Ryland Brau says:

    I used the app when I was under the age of 13. I am now older but looking back this decision is regretted and I am disgusted that I was allowed to use the app and also the vulgar sounds for videos were not censored due to my age.

  16. Olenka Bak says:

    I’m so shocked to find that an app that creates such joy is being used behind our backs for other things

  17. Caitlin says:

    I have reason to believe they have been using my location and have access to all my pictures and they’re not supposed to.

  18. Pat says:

    I believe my personal information was disclosed

  19. Jeremiah Baranczyk says:

    TikTok does not have enough privacy and does not consider parents involved.

  20. J N says:

    Kids that are under age should not be using this app due to the content uploaded. Sometimes the content is 18 and older in my opinion.

  21. nierra says:

    This is extremely upsetting to me and I just feel like this is not fair at all considering I was a minor at the time and actions should be taken.

  22. Zayneb Abdelhamid says:

    This app ruined my life. Im suing.

  23. Keldon weaver says:

    my kid was harssed by grown men
