Announcing Tech Against Terrorism's Newest Member: TikTok

We are pleased to welcome TikTok as the newest member of Tech Against Terrorism. We have had the pleasure to support TikTok throughout its participation in the Tech Against Terrorism Mentorship Programme, and look forward to continue working with TikTok to counter terrorist use of the internet whilst respecting human rights and freedom of expression. Throughout the Mentorship Programme, TikTok has also shown its commitment to increase transparency and accountability towards their users, which we at Tech Against Terrorism will continue to support them with. 

In joining our membership, TikTok has signed the Tech Against Terrorism Pledge. Our Pledge is based on internationally recognised norms and aims to promote responsible industry practices with regard to online counterterrorism efforts whilst ensuring that the protection of human rights and counterterrorism efforts are complementary and mutually reinforcing goals.

"TikTok is a place where people express themselves creatively and learn about the experiences of others in our diverse global community. We are proud to join Tech Against Terrorism to further our shared goal of countering violent extremism, fostering safe online spaces, and promoting human dignity."

– Julie de Bailliencourt, Global Head of Product Policy, TikTok
