  • TikTok users will have the option to skip all similar videos in the future     TikTok

TikTok has revealed its plans to roll out a new feature that will help users who have epilepsy avoid potentially risky photosensitive content. However, this new feature is meant to make users aware as well of any similar effects. There'll also be a toggle in the app's accessibility settings.

Other Things to Know: Despite over 1% of people experiencing epilepsy at some point in their life, epilepsy is often stigmatized. Currently, TikTok does alert creators if their videos contain seizure triggers. Unless the algorithm itself is trained to filter them out for the right users. The app was already warning Creators if their uploads contained effects that could trigger such seizures.

Users also have the option of using the "skip all" function to avoid seeing any videos that are deemed potential triggers.

"While the population of those with photosensitive epilepsy is small, the impact can be quite serious", says Laura Thrall, president and CEO of the Epilepsy Foundation. TikTok has worked with the Epilepsy Foundation of America and other global epilepsy organizations on this initiative. "It is great to see TikTok addressing this issue by making changes to their platform so that people in our epilepsy community can feel protected when viewing content on TikTok". TikTok is today announcing that, after lobbying from epilepsy groups, it will take steps to prevent people seeing clips with flashing images that could potentially trigger a seizure.

In addition, TikTok is working with several leading epilepsy organizations in the world, including the Epilepsy Foundation, Epilepsy Society, Epilepsy Ireland, Korea Bureau for Epilepsy and the Japan Epilepsy Association, to publicize the importance of the new resource and bring awareness to epilepsy generally.
