Things to Remember Before Deleting Tiktok Account
There are a few things that you should know before deleting your Tiktok account permanently so that you won’t regret it later on.
So, what are those important things which you shouldn’t miss or skip?
Download Your Tiktok Data
The first thing which you should remember is to save your Tiktok data. Once you delete your Tiktok account then it will remove everything from your accounts such as videos, following, followers, linked emails or accounts, and more.
Once your data is deleted then there is no such way to restore it back. It’s impossible!!
Therefore, Tiktok allows you to download your data such as video posts that are published or in your drafts. In this way, you can access or use them in your new Tiktok account in the future.
Note: You will find the process to download your Tiktok data while deleting your account down below. So, no need to hurry or search for a way to save it before deletion.
Connecting With Followers
If you have a huge number of Tiktok followers then it will be better to connect them once before your account deletion.
How do you feel if your favorite Tiktokers remove or delete his/her account out of nowhere and you can’t watch their content anymore?
It will be a little bit disappointing, isn’t it? So, let know your followers that you will be no longer available on Tiktok from now on. Simply create a video and state your reason (If you like) then get yourself away from Tiktok.
Check for Reactivate Tiktok
The last thing which you should remember is the reactivation feature. Tiktok won’t delete your account suddenly, it deactivates your account for 30 days and then removes your account from their database.
So, you still have time to reactivate your account within 30 days of deactivation. If you change your mind to keep in touch with your followers and continue earning money then you are good to go.
