The repost feature is growing rapidly on TikTok, but if you change your mind about what you’ve reposted, how do you undo it? Here is everything you need to know about undoing a repost on TikTok.

Thousands of new videos are being posted to TikTok on a daily basis, and users are constantly interacting with the wealth of content available across the platform.

One feature that has become increasingly popular on the app is the ‘Repost’ function. This allows users to re-share a video uploaded by somebody else, and while it won’t appear on your profile, it will appear on your friends’ For You Pages.

However, due to the button’s proximity to other functions in the share menu, there’s a chance you may accidentally repost a video without meaning to. You may also just change your mind about something you’ve reposted. Fortunately, undoing a repost is pretty simple once you know how.

How do you undo a repost on TikTok?

If you quickly change your mind about something you decided to repost on TikTok, undoing it is just as easy as reposting it in the first place.

To do so, simply follow these instructions:

  1. Go to the video that you reposted.
  2. Click on the share menu on the right side of the video (the button that looks like an arrow.)
  3. Tap the ‘Remove repost’ button.
  4. Confirm the removal of the repost when the pop-up appears.

This makes it super easy to change your mind if you decide you want to undo your repost, but it’s worth bearing in mind that the longer you leave it after reposting, the higher the chances are that someone will have already seen it.
