Doing live streams on TikTok is a wonderful way for creators to interact with their followers. Usually, when you do a TikTok live stream, viewers can comment on it and you can reply to their comments. However, this sort of real-time chatting sometimes poses problems for the person who is doing the live stream.
For instance, sometimes the audience can be quite hostile or downright abusive. So, it is sometimes a better option to disable the comments on your live streams. You will learn in this article how to hide comments on your TikTok live streams.
How to Hide Comments On TikTok Live
The first requirement for hiding comments on your TikTok live streams is that you should be eligible to do a live stream on TikTok. Incidentally, you cannot do a TikTok live stream unless you have a TikTok account and more than 1000 followers.
If you meet the above two criteria, you are eligible to do TikTok live streams. The below-outlined steps will show you how you can hide comments on your TikTok live stream.
Step1: Launch the TikTok app on your device and tap the “+” symbol to head into the TikTok recording screen.
Step2: Select the Live option from the bottom menu on the screen to go to the live stream section on TikTok.
Step3: Tap the cog icon that appears in the top-right corner of the screen.
Step4: Tap the Comments option to turn off the comments of viewers on your live stream on TikTok. If you later want to enable people’s comments on your TikTok live stream, you just need to tap this option again.
Please note that the comments will be automatically enabled the next time you do a TikTok live stream. So, you have to disable the comments every time you do a TikTok live stream and do not want people to comment on it.
