Safe Internet Day: TikTok launches personal digital safety campaign

TikTok launched a campaign that will release videos on topics such as personal digital security, screen time control and responsible content creation. The productions will be made available in a special hub with the hashtag #PorUmaInternetSegura.

TikTok's action recalls Safer Internet Day, which will be celebrated on February 6 in more than 200 countries. The videos shown on the social network were produced in partnership with 10 Brazilian NGOs that deal with digital security and mental health.

The content will be published by the organizations on their profiles and TikTok will still notify users to watch about educational topics.
