How to delete your TikTok account?

Feb 14, 20222 min readRahul Sathyakumar

After spending some time on TikTok, creating videos and watching those of other creators, you realise that the app isn't for you anymore. What to do now?

Indeed, it is pointless for your account to exist on the app anymore if you don't want to be a part of it. Your account stores a lot of information about yourself and your device, and it is wise to delete your account if you no longer want to use the app.

Deleting your TikTok account will delete all the videos you have created, and your purchases made through TikTok will no longer be accessible. You can't view chats you have had with your friends on TikTok.

So before you delete your account, make sure you save the necessary data to your device before proceeding.

If you want to reinvent your TikTok profile rather than starting fresh, you can learn how to delete your TikTok videos. This way, you don't have to lose your hard-earned Tiktok followers.
