TikTok, the leading destination for short-form mobile videos further mobilized its vision of a safer internet by collaborating with DQ Institute and JA Worldwide to launch a Family Safety Toolkit.


The first of a kind toolkit will be available on TikTok’s Safety Centre within the app from February 9 onwards in Malaysia and other APAC countries, in conjunction with Safer Internet Day (SID) 2021.

Director, Trust & Safety, TikTok, Asia Pacific, Arjun Narayan Bettadapur said, they are excited to partner with DQ Institute to launch the TikTok Family Safety Toolkit aligned with the DQ framework, the world’s first global standard of digital literacy and digital skills.

“One of our highest priorities at TikTok is to keep our community safe and we’re happy to co-develop this Toolkit as a comprehensive digital parenting guide to help educate families on online safety and digital citizenship through a wide range of policies, tools and resources available on TikTok,” said him in a statement.

SID 2021’s theme, “Together for a better internet”, is a call for unity amongst multiple stakeholders to join in a collective effort to make the internet a safer and better place for all, especially for children and young people.

TikTok saw it fitting to leverage DQ Institute’s Digital Literacy framework and to partner with JA Worldwide to further highlight its commitment towards trust and safety on such an important industry milestone.
