Everything you need to know if you want to secure your profile on TikTok by making it private


Before pointing you how to put private profile on TikTok First of all you need to download the TikTok app for Android and iOS, since unfortunately it is not possible to act on the privacy settings regarding your account through the official website.


On TikTok each user can choose to have a public or private account. By privatizing your account, only users you approve will be able to follow you, see your live shows, videos, bio, lists of users you follow and who follow you and likes. Furthermore, other users will not be able in any way to download your videos, create duets or stitches.

Privacy and security settings on TikTok

From January 2022 the privacy and security settings on TikTok have been updated following the decision to restrict access for younger users to certain features of the app (including: TikTok Live, Messages direct and Gifts).

For users under 16, the account is private by default (although they can make it public). The functions are also disabled:

  • Suggest your account to others (you can activate it).
  • Allow to download your videos (you cannot activate it).
  • Who can duet with your videos (it can be Just me).
  • Who can use Stitch with your videos (it can be Just me).
  • Who can comment on your videos (activated on Friends).

For users between 16 and 17 years old, the account is public by default. You can switch to a private account at any time. Here the functions are some activated others deactivated:



  • Suggest your account to others (it is activated but you can deactivate it).
  • Allow to download your videos (it's disabled but you can enable it).
  • Who can duet with your videos (it's set to Friends but you can make it public or private).
  • Who can use Stitch with your videos (it can be Just me).
  • Who can comment on your videos (you can activate it on Everyone).

How to see the tiktoks of a private profile

To date we have nothing that allows you to see private profile videos on TikTok. On Google you will find lots of fake articles that will refer you to Spam sites. So, I advise you to stay away and forget about any sites or apps that advertise false hopes.

La viewing private profiles of users without the approval of the users themselves on TikTok is not allowed.
