TikTok is moving to further empower its automated detection tools for policy violations, with a new process that will see content that it detects as violating its policies on upload removed entirely, ensuring that no one ever sees it.

As TikTok explains, currently, as part of the upload process, all TikTok videos pass through its automated scanning system, which works to identify potential policy violations for further review by a safety team member. A safety team member will then let the user know if a violation has been detected – but at TikTok’s scale, that does leave some room for error, and exposure, before a review is complete.
