TikTok is a video sharing app where people can create and upload their funny content and share their short video clips with the rest of the world.
So maybe you’ve been using this app for a while and forgot your password? Or you recently changed it and forgot it again? No problem, keep reading this article to find out how to change or reset your password.
Change the account password
If you are still logged into your account, you can easily change the password by following these easy steps below:
- Open the app and click on the “Me” icon in the bottom right corner.
- Then tap the three dots in the top right corner.
- Settings and privacy tab should open. In the Account section click the “Manage my account” icon. It should appear first if you have one of the most recent versions of the app.
After that, choose “Password”.
- Enter your current password, and the new password, click on “Confirm”, and you’re done!
You’re logged out of your account and can’t remember the password
- If you cannot remember your password, and you created the account using your email or phone number, open your TikTok application, click on the “Me” icon to open the login page.
- Click on the option “Forgot password”. The app will ask you which way you want your account to be recovered. Via email or phone number. Select the one you want.
-If you choose the email way, you’d need to type an email for a recovery where they will send you a code to reset the password.
-In case you don’t receive an email from them, please check your spelling while typing an email and if the spelling is correct, check the spam folder of your email. If there is still no sign of it, do the steps again and type your recovery email once more.
-If you choose the phone number way, they’ll ask about your phone number on which they can send a code to reset your password.
- After your phone number or email has been verified, you will be redirected to a new page where you can change or reset your password.
- And at last, just tap to save your new password and you’re all done! Easy, right?
