TikTok has released a good option, avoiding videos that might trigger an epileptic seizure. This is a problem that affects 65 million people around the world, so stopping videos that can trigger, is important. Social media has so many other problems, including people who intentionally try to harm people with these types of videos.

TikTok announced today it is rolling out a new feature that will allow people with photosensitive epilepsy to automatically skip videos that can trigger seizures. The “Skip All” option will be introduced to all users over the next few weeks and comes a few months after TikTok began automatically warning creators if a video contains effects, like flashing lights or certain visual patterns, that can be harmful to people with photosensitive epilepsy. If they upload those videos, TikTok automatically prefaces them with a warning screen.
