TikTok is rolling out the ability to delete multiple comments at once or report them for potentially violating the platform’s Community Guidelines.
Accounts that post bullying or other negative comments can now be blocked in bulk to help creators feel more empowered over their experience on TikTok.
To manage interactions on a video, people can long-press on a comment or tap the pencil icon in the upper left corner to open a window of options.
From there, people can now select up to 100 comments or accounts rather than having to go one by one, making it more seamless to delete or report multiple comments or block users in bulk.
This feature is rolling out today in select markets and more globally over the coming weeks and builds upon ongoing efforts to promote a kind and welcoming community.
People are also prompted to reconsider posting a potentially unkind comment on a video. And, users ages 13-17 have additional safeguards on their accounts designed to promote an age-appropriate experience, including restrictions on Duet, Stitch, DMs, and comments.
“As we develop tools to combat bullying, we also work to educate teens and families about bullying prevention,” the company said in a statement.
