How to Delete a TikTok Account

You’ve had TikTok for a while, and you’ve decided that perhaps your efforts are better served elsewhere. Or, you’ve been trying to grow a couple of TikTok accounts at the same time for a while now, and you’d rather just focus on one going forward. Whatever the reason, there will be times where you will need to know how to permanently delete a TikTok account. Let’s take a look at how to do this for iPad, iPhone, or Android.

Bring TikTok up on your iPad or Android. Just remember if you choose to get rid of your account permanently, you will lose all of the video content that you have uploaded. However, you will have 30 days where your account will just be deactivated, so you can sign back into it if you need.

Click on the profile icon, which is found at the bottom right hand corner and looks like a person. You might be asked to sign in if you’re not already.
