TikTok has released a comprehensive, expanded publication of the Community Guidelines to ensure users understand the platform's guidelines.

A blog post by Lavanya Mahendran and Nasser Alsherif, Global Trust and Safety, TikTok, says: “These guidelines reflect our driving philosophy – providing a platform for creative self-expression while remaining safe, diverse, and authentic – and define a common code of conduct on our platform.”

TikTok users will begin getting notifications regarding the updated guidelines.

The blog further says: “Users will also notice we've grouped violations into 10 distinct categories, each of which includes an explanation of the rationale and several detailed bullet points to clarify what type of misbehaviour would fall into that category.”

According to TikTok, these changes offer clarity around how harmful or unsafe content, not permitted on the platform, is defined.

The goal, as per the writers, is to provide tools for users to foster their creativity and enjoy content that's expressive, authentic, refreshing, and sometimes delightfully quirky – all within a supportive community environment.
