TikTok is an exciting place to make fun, creative videos and enjoy our talented community's hilarious skits and entertaining trends. Whether you're watching videos or creating them, it's important to make sure you – and others around you – keep safety top of mind.
The safety of users is our top priority at TikTok, and we do not allow content that encourages or replicates dangerous challenges that might lead to injury. In fact, it's a violation of our Community Guidelines and we will continue to remove this type of content from our platform. More importantly, we encourage everyone to exercise caution in their behavior whether online or off. Nobody wants their friends or family to get hurt filming a video or trying a stunt. It's not funny – and since we remove that sort of content, it certainly won't make you TikTok famous. If you see something that looks questionable, online or IRL, please report it!
To further our commitment to user safety, we're excited to be partnering with top creators, including @cosmicfuss and @neenib, to make TikTok style videos featuring our safety guidelines. The newest in our "You're in Control" series, these videos remind users that putting themselves or others in harm's way for a prank isn't worth the risk. We're always thrilled to see creators educate the community they care about, and you can find these videos right in the app at @TikTokTips.
We also recommend that everyone review our Community Guidelines to learn about our code of conduct. Let's work together to keep TikTok a safe and fun place.
