This chart shows the volume of videos removed by Tiktok for policy violation, from July 2020 until December 2021. A video may violate multiple policies and each violation is reflected. In certain rare circumstances, such as emergency situations or hardware outages, a removed video’s violation category may not be captured. These videos are not represented in the chart. The data shows that minors' safety is the main reason for video removal by TikTok (45% in the last quarter of 2021), follwed by illegal activities and regulated goods (19.5%) and adult nudity and sexual activities (11%).
