How To Unfollow A TikTok Account

The process is the same for any Android and iPhone user.

To do so you’ll need to find and tap the “following button.”

Step 1: Open The TikTok App

On your Android or Apple device, tap the Tiktok icon on the screen. It’s usually to the side of other social media apps like Twitter.

The app will open immediately.

Step 2: Click On The Search Icon

With TikTok open, look for the magnifying glass near the bottom left of your screen on the home video screen.

Once you tap it, it will take you to a new page.

There you will be able to search for the TikTok account you want to unfollow.

Step 3: Search The Person You Want To Unfollow

Type the name of the person you want to unfollow. Type the name of the person on the sidebar.

Step 4: Click On The Person Icon

Click on their profile, you’ll be taken into it.

Step 5: Click Unfollow

Simply tap the “following button” to unfollow them; it’s the little person with a checkmark on it.

The unfollow button is hidden behind the “following button.”

TikTok will save the changes automatically, just wait a minute until the sign changes.

The Tik Tok app won’t send a notification to anyone you unfollow.

Pro-tip: If you unfollowed smeone and you are still a follower of said account, there might be something wrong with TikTok. Check our article to fix the issue: Why Is TikTok not Working.

How to Unfollow Everyone on Tiktok At Once (Bulk Unfollow)

It is possible to not only unfollow someone on TikTok but to do so for many other users almost at the same time.

While not an intended feature by the company, it has stayed on the app as a tool to remove accounts you want to unfollow.

Step 1: Click On Your Profile Icon For Your Account

It’s on the lower right corner of your screen, the lower sidebar. There you’ll see your profile for your TikTok account.

Step 2: Click On The People You Follow

You’ll see a huge list of the people you follow. Now, take your time to decide who you are going to say goodbye to on the page.

Step 3: Tap Unfollow

Simply click the “following” button to unfollow every user you want to.

TikTok is a bit slow, so it might take a few seconds for your Internet connection to catch your action.

What Happens When You Unfollow Someone On TikTok?

Another Tiktok account won’t get notified that you unfollowed them.

The only way they’ll find out who did so is if they check their followers one by one.

And while some may check on all their followers, most won’t.

However, comments and the date of said comments won’t be deleted and no tool or tools will help you delete them if you forget to do so manually.

Note: If you can’t delete a comment from TikTok videos, try to contact TikTok Support. They might be able to give you feedback to do so.


We hope you’ve finally learned how to follow and unfollow a TikTok account.

As you see it’s possible to unfollow others on Tiktok and the bulk unfollow feature is very handy!
