About comments


Allowing people to comment on your videos is a great way to interact with others and build connections on TikTok.

You can choose who can comment on your videos in your settings:
In your account privacy settings, you can choose who can comment on your videos:
•  Everyone (only for public accounts): If you choose Everyone and you have comments turned on, then anyone can comment on your video.
•  Followers (only for private accounts): If you choose Followers and you have comments turned on, only people following you on TikTok can comment on your videos.
•  Friends: If you choose Friends and you have comments turned on, then only your friends can comment on your video. Friends are people on TikTok who you follow and who follow you back.
You can also turn off comments on all your existing videos at one time in your privacy settings. This means you don't have go to each of your videos individually to turn off comments.

You can turn comments on or off for each of your videos:
You can turn comments off or on before you post a video, or for an existing video.
•  If you turn comments on: The group you selected in the Who can comment on your video setting for all your videos can comment on this video. For example, if you chose to allow only your Friends to comment on all your videos, then if you turn on comments for a single video, only your Friends can comment on your video.
•  If you turn comments off: No one can comment on your video.

Reporting comments:
TikTok is always working to maintain a safe, positive, and friendly community. Learn how to report comments that you think go against our Community Guidelines and block other accounts so they can't comment on your video. Keep in mind, if you block an account, that person can't view your videos or engage with you through direct messages, comments, follows, or likes.

Please review the Privacy and Safety settings for users under age 18 for more details on your comments settings.
