It has also taken proactive measures to prevent the creation of spam accounts through automated means. Since last quarter, TikTok has identified 33 new misinformation claims, leading to the removal of 58,000 videos from the platform worldwide.
In the second quarter of 2022, the total volume of ads removed for violating advertising policies and guidelines decreased. This is in part due to efforts to strengthen account-level detection and enforcement strategies that have helped improve the ad ecosystem and create a better experience for both users and advertisers.

To further reiterate its commitment to fighting misinformation and ensuring safety, TikTok is implementing a new penalty system where if someone violates one of its Community Guidelines, their account will be penalized for that specific policy violation.
The platform will record the number of penalties accumulated and if the person continues to post content that violates the rules, they will be permanently banned. The number of strikes leading to a permanent ban depends on the severity of the violation and the number of total violations.
