TikTok's mission is to inspire creativity and bring joy. Our platform is the daily destination for millions of people to express themselves creatively, enjoy entertaining content, and engage with a diverse global community that transcends borders. 

As an organization, we also believe it's important to shine light on the facts and set the record straight. To address rumors and misinformation about TikTok, we've built a new information hub to serve as a source of truth. We also launched a Twitter account that's dedicated to sharing company news in real time.

Transparency is at our core, and we're committed to leading the industry in security and accountability. Today, we're taking another step to continue to build trust with our TikTok community by delivering the facts – in our own words and in the words of leading experts across cybersecurity, media, and academia – because we neither support nor stand for the spread of misinformation on our platform, or about our platform. 

We’re continually strengthening our security-first culture, and constantly improving our lines of defense by investing in people and tools to keep the TikTok community safe, which remains our priority. We're committed to cultivating a culture of transparency and we'll continue to use our new information hub as a dedicated channel so you have the facts at your fingertips.
