According to the report, 81,518,334 videos were removed globally between April and June for violating Community Guidelines or Terms of Service, which is less than 1% of all videos uploaded on TikTok.

“Of those videos, TikTok identified and removed 93.0% within 24 hours of being posted and 94.1% before a user reported them. 87.5% of removed content had zero views.
