How to turn TikTok activity status on & off
If you’re an avid TikTok user, you have probably noticed the activity status in your inbox section which allows you to see who else is online at the moment. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
Short-form video platform TikTok continues to be one of the most popular social media apps in the world, as new users are joining every day to participate in many of the site’s most viral trends.
It’s easy to connect with friends on the platform, and if you follow each other back, you can stay up to date with what each other is posting. It’s also simple to send other people messages on the app and exchange your favorite videos.
In 2022, TikTok introduced an Activity Status feature, which, if both parties have the feature enabled, means you will be able to see whether or not your friends are online, making communicating even easier. Fortunately, turning the feature on and off is simple.

You will only be able to see whether someone’s active or when they were last active if you are mutual followers, and if you both have the feature switched on. In addition, you must be over the age of 18 to have access.
To turn the feature on and off, simply do as follows:
- Open TikTok.
- Click on your profile in the bottom right corner.
- Tap the three lines in the top right, then ‘Settings and privacy.’
- Click ‘Privacy.’
- Next to ‘Activity status,’ tap the toggle button to switch the feature either on or off.
