Many TikTok users have found themselves accidentally clicking the ‘Repost’ button on a video, and not knowing how to delete the repost. Here’s everything you need to know about how to undo and delete a repost on TikTok.

Thousands of videos are posted to TikTok every day, and millions of users are constantly interacting with the breadth of content available across the platform.

One feature that has become increasingly popular on the app is the ‘Repost’ function, which allows users to re-share a clip posted by someone else. This will make the videos appear on your friends’ For You Pages, and they will also be shared on a special page in your profile.

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, deleting 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. Press 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.
