TikTok stars Dixie D’Amelio and Noah Beck have been at the center of fan speculation, after being spotted hanging out in public multiple times — and now, they’ve finally addressed the rumors of their alleged secret romance.

Dixie D’Amelio took the social media world by storm after parting ways with now ex-boyfriend and fellow TikToker Griffin Johnson, following accusations of infidelity against him as levied by the Hype House’s Chase Hudson.

Dixie appeared to take some not-so-subtle shots at her ex online a short while later, claiming that she has a grand total of 48 screenshots with proof that he’d cheated on her, prompting a legitimate apology from the star who’d previously made light of the ordeal.

In the midst of all this, Dixie and Noah Beck were spotted together by paparazzi while getting dinner — and the two seemed to be quite close in fans’ eyes.

Less than a week later, viewers had all but confirmed among themselves that the two were in some kind of secret romance (a possibility that Griffin himself appeared to give his blessing for in his social media apology to Dixie).

However, it seems that these two influencers are merely best buddies, as confirmed by both parties while out at another dinner date on September 2.

“We’re just best friends,” Beck answered when paparazzi from the Hollywood Fix approached him about the subject. “Just good friends.”

Dixie gave a similar response, replying, “No, I’m okay,” after the photographer reminded her that fans had given she and Noah the “green light” to date — as well as confirming that she was staying well away from “TikTok boys.”

This latest news follows Dixie’s claim that she would remain single for a “long time” following her split with Griffin in an earlier interview.

Considering the high-profile lifestyle of TikTokers these days, it comes as little surprise that Dixie’s every move is hounded by paparazzi and fans, alike; but there’s no telling if the two are dating or not until (or if) they make it official.

TikTok has undeniably become a great way for people to find the content they like, make new friends and connect with like-minded people, just like any social media platform does — but you might want a bit more privacy on the app, and turning off Direct Messages might be the perfect solution.

You might want to turn DMs off for any number of reasons. You might be getting spammed, or receiving unwanted messages, and you want to block them out completely.

By default TikTok lets you share DMs with Friends on the app, or someone that you follow and follows you back.

But you can change the settings to better suit you if you don’t want to receive direct messages at all, regardless of the reason you want to prevent them.

If you’re getting unwanted DMs, it’s possible to turn them off.

How to turn off TikTok DMs

If you would prefer that you can’t be reached out to at all on TikTok, the process of changing your settings is actually really simple.

To stop even ‘Friends’ from DMing you on TikTok and closing them completely, here’s what you’ve got to do:

  1. Open your TikTok app.
  2. Click on the ‘Me’ tab.
  3. Press the three dots in the top right corner of the screen to access your Settings and Privacy.
  4. Click Privacy.
  5. Scroll down and, under the ‘Safety’ list, press ‘Who can send you direct messages’.
  6. Change the setting from Friends to No one.

It’s very easy to turn off your DMs on TikTok.

After doing this, your direct messages will be closed off to everyone on the app, whether you follow them or not.

This is perfect if you’re getting spammed or receiving unwanted messages, especially from people you don’t know, and if you don’t want to unfollow them.

How to remove followers

As mentioned, one alternative to closing your direct messages (if you want to leave them open to friends) is by removing followers. This could mean either unfollowing the user, or removing them as one of your followers. Here’s how to do either of the above:

To unfollow a user:

  • Go to that user’s profile
  • Tap the “Following” icon
  • You should now no longer be following them

To remove a user from your followers:

  • Go to that user’s profile
  • Tap the three dots in the top right corner
  • Tap “Remove this follower”

By following any of the above steps, you can completely turn off your DMs on TikTok, or just stop certain people from reaching out to you. Please also bear in mind that, if somebody is bothering you on the platform, you should also report them to let TikTok know so they can take appropriate action.
