In the report, it was visible that Pakistan had the second-highest number of videos taken down by the application. However, the United States remained the country with the highest number of videos removed, with almost 13 million in the same time span.
It is important to mention here, that although the number may seem large by itself, it is a slight improvement from last quarter when 14 million videos were removed. In this quarter, around 85,680,819 videos have been removed from the platform, which amounts to 0.6% of all the videos uploaded on the platform. However, more than 5 million videos were also restored on the application.
While going into detail about the video removals from Pakistan, TikTok mentioned that the country saw the removal of over 12 million videos in Q4 2022, for violating guidelines. Around 89.7% of the violent videos were removed before anyone could view them, and 95.5% of such videos were removed in a day. The report also added that the proactive removal rate in Q4 was 98.8%.
