At the present, having a single TikTok account is not sufficient enough.
With the introduction of moderation features like the shadowban and manual reviews, TikTok accounts are at risk of getting a huge drop in views.
If your account is shadowbanned, your videos won’t show up on other users’ “For You” pages.
Similarly, if one of your videos is under review, no one will be able to see it.
If you’re hit by either one of these, your account’s reach will decrease sharply.
To counter this, you can create another TikTok account.
If you have a decent number of followers on TikTok, you can create a secondary account just in case something bad happens to your main one.
Hence, in this guide, you’ll learn how to add multiple accounts on TikTok in 4 steps.
How to add multiple accounts on TikTok
To add multiple accounts on TikTok, tap on the dropdown arrow on your profile.
Then, tap on “Add account” to create a new account or add an existing account.
If you haven’t created a new account, you can create one by tapping on one of the multiple sign-up options.
However, you have to make sure that you’re not using the same sign-up option that you’ve used for your main account.
On the other hand, if you already have an existing account, you can add it by logging in to it.
This can be done by tapping on “Log in” at the bottom of the sign-up page.
After you’ve added a new account, you can easily switch between accounts by tapping on the dropdown arrow on your profile again.
Then, tap on the account that you want to switch to.
Below is a step-by-step guide on how you can add multiple accounts on TikTok:
- Go to your TikTok profile & tap on the dropdown arrow
- Tap on “Add account”
- Sign up for a new account
- Follow the on-screen instructions
1. Go to your TikTok profile & tap on the dropdown arrow
Open TikTok > tap on the “Me” icon on the bottom navigation bar.
The first step is to tap on the dropdown arrow on your profile.
Firstly, open TikTok on your mobile device.
Keep in mind that you shouldn’t use TikTok on a desktop as you won’t be able to add multiple accounts there.
Once you’re on TikTok, tap on the “Me” icon at the bottom navigation bar.
After you’ve tapped on the “Me” icon, you’ll land on your profile.
On your profile, you’ll see your TikTok username with a dropdown arrow at the top navigation bar.
Tap on the dropdown arrow at the top navigation bar.
Proceed to the next step to learn how to add an additional account on TikTok.
2. Tap on “Add account”
Tap on “Add account” to add a new TikTok account.
After you’ve tapped on the dropdown arrow, a navigation menu will open.
The navigation menu displays all of the accounts that you’ve added to TikTok.
For example, if you’ve added two accounts, both accounts can be seen on the menu.
You can switch between accounts by tapping on one of them.
The account with a tick is the one that you’re currently logged into.
On the contrary, the account without the tick is the one that you’re logged out of.
If you haven’t added an additional account yet, you need to add it first.
To add a new account on TikTok, tap on “Add account” at the bottom of the menu.
You’ll be using it to either create a new TikTok account or log in to an existing account in the next step.
3. Sign up for a new account
Sign up for a new account or log in to an existing account.
Once you’ve tapped on “Add account”, you’ll land on the sign-up page.
On the sign-up page, you’ll see multiple sign-up options including “Continue with phone or email”, “Continue with Facebook”, “Continue with Apple”, and “Continue with Google”.
You can also tap on the dropdown arrow to expand the list of sign-up options.
At the bottom of the page, you’ll see a “Log in” option.
If you don’t have a second TikTok account, you need to create it by using one of the sign-up options.
However, do not use the sign-up option as your main account.
For example, if you’ve signed up using Facebook, you need to use another sign-up option (e.g. Google) to create a new account.
If you’ve already created another account in the past, you can log in to it by tapping on the “Log in” option at the bottom of the page.
If you’re looking to create a new account, proceed to the last step to find out how.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions
Follow the on-screen instructions to create a new account.
After you’ve tapped on a sign-up option from the previous step, you need to enter your birthday.
When you’re signing up for a TikTok account, you need to be 13 years old and above.
If you’re under the age of 13, the app will prevent you from signing up.
Hence, when you’re selecting your birthday, make sure to choose an age above 13.
Next, you need to enter either your phone number or email.
Then, select a password and tap on the tick icon to complete the sign-up process.
After you’ve signed up, you need to verify your email or phone number.
If you’ve entered your email, check your email for a verification link and tap on it to verify your account.
Make sure to verify your account to prevent TikTok from marking you as a bot/spam account.
You’ve successfully learned how to add multiple accounts on TikTok!
You can repeat the steps to add more accounts to the app.
Having multiple TikTok accounts is a necessity in the present.
It acts as a hedge against temporary blocks and bans such as the shadowban.
In fact, some popular TikTokers got their accounts banned due to the nature of their content.
However, they managed to continue making videos by using their second, or even third account.
Hence, if you don’t have at least two TikTok accounts, it’s best to create one more.
