Over the past few years, TikTok has seen a huge increase in its number of users, and it only seems to be getting more and more popular by the day.
The app has become home to a whole host of popular personalities, trends, dances, and more, and is a hub for some of the internet’s most viral content.
The busy app has naturally been a huge drawing point for millions of users across the world, some of which have chosen to try and build their own following on the platform.

How to delete TikTok account
Deleting your account is, fortunately, a fairly simple process.
- Launch TikTok.
- Tap ‘Profile’ in the bottom right corner of the screen.
- Click the three-line icon in the top right.
- Tap ‘Manage account’ under ‘Account.’
- Select ‘Delete account.’
- Follow the in-app instructions.
Following these instructions initially only deactivates your account, as in the 30 days following you are able to log back in and select ‘Reactivate your account,’ to recover it. However, after those 30 days have passed your account will be permanently closed.
After your account has been permanently deleted, if you want to rejoin TikTok you will have to make a new account.
