The popular short video-making platform, TikTok has launched a 'Device Management' feature that would allow users in India to have complete control of their account. 

With this 'Device Management' feature, users will be able to end sessions or remove their accounts from other devices from within the TikTok app. Thus, it will properly maintain the safety of their account. As per the company, the feature would help avoid the misuse of user accounts. 

The company stated, “TikTok constantly promotes a safe and positive app experience for its over 200 million users in India by offering them in-app tools and educational content to equip them with all the information they need to have the best possible experience while showcasing their creativity."  

It is to be noted that, the "Device Management" feature is an addition to TikTok's existing suite of 13 safety features. 

Features such as age gate, restricted mode, screen-time management, comments filter and safety centre are helping users to safely showcase their creative expression by their videos, as claimed by the company. 

Adding to it, the company also revealed that it has released a series of educational videos in both Hindi and English languages, which will help users to understand and learn the workings of the industry with 14 safety features. 

Why TikTok was banned in India? 

The company is taking some serious steps for improving the safety and security of the users on its platforms after it was banned in India for showing some illicit content. This whole matter came into limelight when a petition was filed in the Madras High Court to block the application from the country. But, the app is back again after the ban was lifted by Madras High Court. 

A very shocking incidence occurred in Tamil Nadu where a 24-year old mother of two children committed suicide last week after she was scolded by her husband and prevented from using the short video-making app.
