How many followers do you need to go live on TikTok?

In order to go live on the social media app, users must be at least 18 years old. TikTok also has limited the accounts that can go live to only users with over 1,000 followers. Unfortunately, there currently is no way to do this without 1000 followers.

Users who are 18 and above can also earn gift points in the process, while those younger cannot.

This means that if you are a TikTok user under that follower threshold, your access to the going live feature will be restricted until you reach the required follower count.
