With over 1 billion users across the world and has become the heartthrob for users in 150 countries, Tiktok is a social media platform that is too unique to ignore. Its ease of usage and the main theme behind its releases – sharing of fun videos of shorter length, far different from the other social media platforms existing to date – made it a great hit among its lovers. Right from young to old, everybody loved Tik Tok for the fun dose it added into their lives.
The main secret why TikTok stole so many hearts is it brought out the creativity hidden in every user. All just it provided was a quirky way of sharing fun things that one is an expert at with the world out there. Users witnessed the wonders from across the world right in their palms, thanks to Tiktok.
In its primitive essence, TikTok is a social media platform. So, like all other its counterparts, there is also an age limit set by Tiktok designers. The app allows only users in the age range over 13 years to create an account in it and share the videos. Any user below this age cannot create an account on Tiktok.
Even if they did by giving a misguiding date of birth or wrong information, their account is soon blocked by the Tiktok designers, thanks to the stringent Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
As you know, while registration itself, Tiktok asks you to enter your age and the date of birth. Once you filled the columns and proceeded with the further steps, no way you can change them. But, here is a way to change the age on Tiktok.
If you are above 13 years and entered your date of birth wrong and want to change age on the Tiktok, or entered the wrong age knowingly while registering and want to correct the age now, here are some tips for you.
How to change the age on Tiktok?
In your Tik Tok profile, tap the three-dot icon on the top right corner. You can see the option – Support. From this choose Report a problem.
Once you do this, the Tiktok support mandates you to prove your age. Then you can show your government-issued birth date proof and add the correct date of birth now. It’s easy, isn’t it?
Log out of your Tik Tok account. For logging out, click on the Me option in the bottom right of the screen. Choose Settings and Privacy from the three-dot menu. You can find the Logout option at the last. Click it.
Now again, sign up on Tiktok. This time choose a Phone Number or Email. In the next steps, the app asks you to enter the birthday details. Enter the correct information here so that you are now changing to the correct age on Tiktok. Once you do this, now login into the account with the help of the phone number or email id you provided.
Tiktok is a social media platform that has to be used with transparency. Entering the correct date of birth is the first step to be a responsible user of Tiktok. Besides, it eliminates unwanted and unforeseen headaches for you. Happy using Tiktok!
