TikTok has been an absolute blessing for aspiring influencers, with many creators finding unparalleled levels of success on the platform.
With so many users able to check your profile, one thing you’ll want to do is offer them more. Be that a link to your business, your other social media accounts, or to a cause you believe in, adding a link to your TikTok biography can help in numerous ways.
That said, not everybody can add a website link to their bio; some users simply don’t have the option. You could write it out, but it would be ideal to have a direct option to do so.
Here’s how you can add a link to your bio and, if you don’t have the option already, how you can get it.
How to add a link to TikTok bio
To check if you can already add a link to your TikTok bio, you need to head to your Profile and click ‘Edit Profile.’
Once there, underneath the ‘Bio’ slot should be one that says ‘Website’ where you can simply add the link in— but if not, we’ve got you covered.
Follow these steps to join the TikTok Testers program and get the Website option on your profile:
- Go to your TikTok profile.
- Click the three dots in the top right corner.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
- Select ‘Join TikTok Testers.’
- Tap ‘TestFlight’ and download it in the App Store.
- Tap ‘Start Testing’ and download the new TikTok.
- Open your TikTok profile again and click ‘Edit Profile.’
- Add your link under the new ‘Website’ option.
If all done correctly, you should be able to add a website and get your link out there properly, regardless of what you want to link to, be it personal or for something unrelated to yourself.
If you don’t have the option after following the above steps, this may be down to your follower count or due to the country you’re in.
In that case, you might just have to wait until you get more followers or it opens in your country. It’s not clear what follower count is ‘allowed’ to add a clickable link to their TikTok bio, but it may not even be an issue depending on where you are.
