Global video sharing app TikTok has joined the WePROTECT Global Alliance, a multi-sector initiative to combat online child sexual exploitation, pledging to work collaboratively with industry partners, key non-profits, academics and governments to better protect children online. "Our membership reflects both TikTok's zero tolerance of child sexual exploitation and the fact that this is a universal challenge that requires a collective response," said the platform, adding that it intends to collaborate, learn and share best practices with its peers.
