Make your account public or private

If you have a public account, all other TikTok users can watch your videos and you will not need to approve followers. If you have a private account, only users you approve can follow you and view your videos and likes. Whether your account is public or private, you can still choose who can comment on and download your videos.

To set your account as public or private:

1. Go to Me.
2. Tap ..., located on the top right corner.
3. Go to Privacy.
4. Turn Private Account on or off.

You can also choose whether you want your account to be suggested to others by using the toggle "Suggest your account to others."

Note: Videos on a public account will be public by default and videos on a private account will only be visible to your followers.
