By default when you B, it is set to Public, just like any other social media app. Tiktok’s Public and Private Accounts have their own benefits, most people keep their accounts private to avoid any misuse of the identity and photos, while Actors, Models, Brands, etc. have to make a public profile so everyone can easily reach them.

To be clear, when you switch private to public, anyone can see your videos, profile, likes, comments, and follow you without the need for any approval from the account holder. Whereas it is exactly the opposite when it comes to private, everything is hidden and in your control, unless you approve the request and let them follow you.

It merely takes a minute to make your TikTok Account Private to Public, let’s get into the tutorial. Once the account is switched to the public, your profile, videos, likes, and other contents are accessible by anyone without any restrictions.

One more thing to note is, all the pending follow requests of your TikTok account will be approved after making TikTok account Public.
