Italy has given time till Friday to block the users whose age cannot be verified by TikTok in any way. Italy wants them blocked because of a death of a girl. Data protection agency of Italy issued these orders to TikTok.

The girl died because she was participating in a “blackout” challenge where she died of asphyxiation. The girl was 10 years old, and she died by doing this blackout challenge on TikTok. Italy has currently banned the TikTok app, and it will remain until the required actions are taken by TikTok which were ordered by the data protection agency of Italy.

So far, TikTok has not entertained any orders of the GPDP, and it looks as if they won’t be any time soon. But apparently, a spokesperson from TikTok did say that they are currently reviewing the entire situation at hand. They also said that safety as well as the privacy of its users is the main goal of TikTok as well as giving them a platform to express their artistic values and ideas. They also said that TikTok is also trying its best to update its policies, especially the users that are of young age. The GPDP are already quite concerned over this matter of TikTok, they want TikTok to bring in some kind of a new feature that can 100% verify that the age of the user is exactly as it says.

The GPDP have said that TikTok’s verification checks regarding the age of a user can easily be bypassed and lied on to, therefore, they have given TikTok 30 days to come up with something. TikTok has to come up with a new feature or else the application is going to be banned indefinitely in Italy.
