Tiktok is indeed a widely used app. There are tons of creators posting regularly who have already established a wide loyal audience, while others are still competing to crack the code to that one viral video.
Nevertheless, many of us use TikTok just to comment, like, and get entertained only. Reasons can be immense, but the fact that we interact with this platform more than often is the factual constant.
While most of the content we consume and put up is healthy and fun to watch, there always remains a scope of negativity everywhere. Likewise, here on the TikTok platform, we might end up coming across certain accounts, people, and video content that we either completely dislike or believe to be offending people’s sentiments.
Furthermore, at times, the audience on the platform goes beyond just being honest and comments on silly humiliating things.
The solution is to straight away report such accounts and videos. TikTok has its own set of rules and guidelines, and if your reported account or content puts its foot outside the code of conduct, TikTok either deletes the content or suspends the account.
How to Report An Account On TikTok
When any TikTok user troubles you or puts up insulting videos and comments violating the TikTok guidelines, you have the liberty to report them.
The good part is that your name remains anonymous, and the other user will not know who has reported it.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to report an account.
Step 1: Launch the TikTok app and go to the profile of the user whose content you find offensive and wish to report.
Step 2: Tap the three dots in the top right corner, and an options menu will be displayed at the bottom.
Step 3: Select the Report option from the displayed choices.
Step 4: You will now have two options, Report account or Report content. Here since you are reporting the account, tap the former option.
Step 5: Now you will be shown a list of probable reasons for reporting the account. Choose an appropriate reason. Then tap Submit.
TikTok will review your report, and if they conclude that the account has actually been violating the rules, the account may be terminated.
How to Report A Video On TikTok
If you come across a violating video, you can directly report the video instead of reporting the account.
Step 1: As you watch the video, you will see a little arrow (Share) in the bottom right corner.
Step 2: As you tap share, you will see an option to report at the bottom. Tap Report.
Step 3: From here, the steps are the same as above. You will have to choose a reason to report, then tap Submit.
