If you want to share your TikTok with someone, you can either tell them your username or send them your URL.
Telling someone your username requires them to search for it on TikTok.
However, if your username is common, the person might not be able to find your profile as there are too many similar usernames.
If that’s the case, you can send them your TikTok profile URL instead by copying and pasting it.
Sending your TikTok URL makes it easier for the person to visit your profile.
All they have to do is to visit the link to go to your profile.
In this guide, you’ll learn what is your TikTok URL, how to get it, and how to change it.
What is my TikTok URL?
Your TikTok URL is tiktok.com/@username.
For example, if your TikTok username is @followchain, your TikTok URL is tiktok.com/@followchain.
On social media platforms like Instagram, your URL is instagram.com/username.
However, on TikTok, your username on your URL has to have an “@” sign in front of it.
If you don’t include an “@” sign in front of your username, the link will not work.
Instead, it’ll go to a “404” page with a “Couldn’t find this page” error.
How to get your TikTok profile URL
To get your TikTok profile URL, you first need to navigate to “Share profile”.
Then, tap on “Copy link” to copy your profile’s link and share it with others.
Alternatively, you can just share your TikTok link by manually typing it out.
If you’re using TikTok on a desktop, you simply sign in to your account, visit your profile, and copy its link on the URL field.
Your link is tiktok.com/@username, with @username being your TikTok username.
Make sure to include an “@” sign in front of your username.
Otherwise, the link would lead to a “404” page and not to your TikTok profile.
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to get your profile URL (with screenshots).

How do I change my TikTok URL?
To change your TikTok URL, you need to change your username.
After you’ve changed your username, your TikTok URL will be changed as well.
Firstly, navigate to your TikTok profile and tap on “Edit profile”.
Then, tap on the “Username” field.
Lastly, change your username to a new one.
Keep in mind that you can only change your TikTok username after 30 days.
Hence, before changing your username, make sure that you’ve carefully considered it first.
TikTok usernames are unique, which means that you cannot have the same username as someone else.
However, TikTok names are not unique, so you can choose any name you want even if another user has it.
This is because your TikTok username is included in your profile URL and not your name.
Hence, if you want to share your TikTok with others, it’s best that you tell them your username.
Alternatively, you can use the guide in this article to copy your URL.
