Inactive Account Policy

What is TikTok's Inactive Account Policy?

We encourage users to actively use TikTok after creating an account on our platform.
If an account remains inactive for 180 days or more, the username may be reset to a randomized numeric username. A username may also be reset if we receive a valid request, such as a trademark infringement notice.

How does TikTok determine inactivity?

We consider an account inactive if it was not used to access TikTok for at least 180 days. Whether an account is inactive is not publicly visible.

Can I request a TikTok username that is taken by another account?

In most instances, we cannot reassign a username. We suggest using a variation of your desired username by adding numbers or underscores, or using an abbreviation.
If you believe that a username infringes your intellectual property rights, view our Intellectual Property Policy.
