How to Enable TikTok Privacy and Safety Settings

TikTok, earlier this year, changed the default privacy and safety settings for all registered accounts ages 13-15 to private. 

According to the social media company, they want younger users to be able to make informed choices about what and with whom they choose to share, which includes whether they want to open their account to public views.
