A Quick TikTok Guide: How To Create A New Account?

Do you want to be a part of this community? With so many people signing up to this social platform, no wonder why you want to join the ranks. That’s why we have decided to make a step-by-step guide for all the newcomers out there. 

How to Make a TikTok Account?

This easy guide can help you make your first TikTok account ever. To do it, just follow these simple steps. You will have your account ready in no-time.

Step 1

 The first thing you do is download the TikTok app from the App Store. This is an easy step. If you already did this, launch the app. The first thing you will see is the timeline, or in this case, all the latest videos people have posted. Now, go to the bottom right corner on the screen. Press on the first icon to the right. See the screenshot below. This is your profile button. 

Step 2

Now, a new screen will pop up. This is the sign-up screen. You can choose to sign up from multiple platforms like Facebook or Twitter. Or you can choose to sign up with your e-mail or phone. Since signing up via other platforms is very easy, you only log in, we have decided to show you the more complicated way. We are going to sign up with the e-mail or phone. Press on the red button to get to the next step.

Step 3

 TikTok will now ask you about the day you were born. Select the month, day, and year from the options down below. After you complete adding your numbers, the checkmark will turn red. Press on it to get to the next step.

Step 4

 Before you can move forward, you have to add either your phone or your e-mail. It is a good idea to add both of them for additional security. Or, if you want to later deactivate the account, you will still have to add your phone number. So, go ahead and add both of them now. When you are ready, press on the checkmark on the bottom right corner.

Step 5

 Set your password. Here you will have to use both letters and numbers to set your password. Press on the checkmark when you are done.

Step 6

 After you add your password, the app will try to make sure that you are not a robot. Now, this is the step that can be different for many people. The app will either ask you if you are a robot. If this screen pops up, you will have to check the option “I’m not a robot.” See the screenshot below.

 Or you can see a different screen. Another option is a random puzzle. The app might ask you to select pictures, squares, or other options to confirm you are not a robot. Press “Verify” when you are done solving the puzzle. 

Step 7

Now you have created your TikTok profile. Welcome to the community! From here you can edit it, change your picture, or add new content. There are plenty of features for you to experiment with. Now, go ahead and update your profile.
