Important to know

Many people believe that pressing the Delete account button immediately removes the account from the social network. This is not true. It will be gone in a month. During this 30-day period, your profile will continue to exist, just no one but you will be able to see it. Why wait so long? This time is given to the owner of the account to think. If you change your mind within the allotted period, it will be easy to get your account back. Log in to your account and it will be restored.

When you start the profile deletion process, TikTok will offer to save the archived account information for you. Do not rush to agree, because it will not be possible to collect your entire stock of videos in this way. This archive contains only general information about the user: a description of the profile and its settings, the history of your activity on the social network and those contacts for communication that you left during registration. However, all this can be useful to you, the preparation of such an archive will take approximately 3-4 days.

When Account Cleanup Isn't Recommended

Not 100% sure you want to say goodbye to your account forever? In this case, do not completely clean up all your videos uploaded to the social network before deleting the account. Your videos will remain safe in your profile. You will surely be pleased to see them again if you change your mind and return to TikTok.

When do you want to clear your account?

Even if you deleted your account and the 30-day period allotted for reflection has expired, this does not mean that everything you filmed and uploaded to the social network will be lost with it. Your creations will remain viewable on TikTok. Your messages from private chats will not go anywhere either. They, of course, will not be shared, but they will be kept by the recipients. Did you buy something on social media? Deleting your profile will not give you the right to demand a refund of the money spent.

Have you made a firm and final decision to disappear from the world of TikTok forever and want to also remove everything that was once uploaded from the social network? In this case, before you start deleting your account, clean up your videos and do not forget to delete messages in all chats. When you're done with that, review your subscriptions and unfollow each one. Make sure the account is completely empty.
