In September 2019, Witherspoon told Ellen DeGeneres "I get distracted a lot because I see cute dogs, and I'm like, 'Oh, I've got to pull over!' I will literally pull over and get out of the car if it's a bulldog. Only a bulldog. I'm very preferential to certain breeds ... if it's being walked by somebody and it's really cute. There's probably a lot of pictures in the world of me on the side of the road with dogs." You can follow Reese Witherspoon's account @officialreesetiktok.

This feature can allow parents to filter the people that their children talk to on the application, they can make adjustments so that their child can only talk to their friends and not strangers. They can also limit their child's screen time, from 40 minutes to 120 minutes a day. They can also block content that is deemed inappropriate and report it.
