TikTok also enables automated detection tools to detect policy violations with a new process that can remove policy-violating content while it's being downloaded, ensuring that no one can see the content.

As part of the upload process, all videos go through an automated filtering system that detects potential violations for further review by members of the review team.

A member of the review team then notifies the user when a violation is detected. But on the TikTok scale, this leaves room for error before the review is complete.

The platform is now working hard to improve this and hopes to ensure that potentially infringing material does not reach the public.

"Over the next few weeks, we will be using technology to automatically remove certain types of violating content that were identified during uploads," she said. Except for the deletion confirmed by our security team. Maintain automation in content categories where our technology is most accurate.

TikTok now doesn't allow potential violations, but it does block downloads, which may help limit your viewing.

This process can be a concern for content creators. However, Tik Tok confirmed that its detection system has proven to be very accurate.

"We found the false positive rate for auto-deletion to be 5%," she said. The request to delete the video remains unchanged. We hope to continue improving our accuracy over time.

In addition to improving the overall TikTok experience, the platform also hopes that this update will also help improve the resilience of their security team by reducing the number of annoying videos administrators watch and allowing them more time in highly contextual and nuanced areas.

In addition, the platform introduced new views of accounts and abuse reports to increase transparency and prevent users from crossing borders.

The new system displays the violations collected for each user along with new warnings that are displayed in different areas of the app as a reminder.

Because of recurring problems, the penalties for such initial warnings were converted into a blanket injunction. In the event of more serious problems, TikTok will automatically delete the account. It can also block devices to prevent accounts from appearing in the future.

These are important metrics, especially given the platform's young user base.

Internal data from the New York Times last year showed that about a third of the platform's users are 14 or younger, which means that young people could be at high risk for the app.

The platform is facing several investigations in this regard, including temporary bans in certain regions due to its content.
