By default when you create TikTok Account, it is set to Public, just like any other social media app. 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 need for any approval from the account holder. Whereas it is exactly opposite when it comes to private, everything is hidden and in your control, unless you approve the request and let them follow you.
