Yes, you can create a private TikTok account. To do this, follow these steps:
- Open the TikTok app.
- Tap on your profile icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.
- Tap on the three dots in the top right corner of the screen.
- Tap on “Settings and privacy.”
- Tap on “Privacy.”
- Toggle the switch to the right of “Private account” to the on position.
Once you have made your account private, only people who you approve can follow you and see your videos. To approve someone to follow you, they will need to send you a follow request. You can then approve or deny their request.
Here are some of the benefits of having a private TikTok account:
- You can control who sees your videos.
- You can prevent strangers from following you.
- You can feel more comfortable sharing personal content.
If you ever decide that you no longer want your account to be private, you can always change it back to public by following the same steps above and toggling the switch to the off position.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind about private TikTok accounts:
- People who are already following you before you make your account private will be able to continue following you.
- People who find your account through search or through other means will not be able to see your videos unless you approve them to follow you.
- You can still use TikTok’s other features, such as duets, challenges, and live streaming, even if your account is private.
