What happens if you delete your TikTok account

Is this step definitive? Can you get the account back?

Pay attention to the following points. You need to be aware of what happens after you click on the ‘Delete account’ button on TikTok.

✅ Once you delete your TikTok account, you cannot log into the application with the data you registered: email, username, or phone number. 

You lose any access to the content you have posted on your profile. That is, if you did not save it on your mobile device, you wouldn’t be able to access that content. 

✅ If you have purchased a product through the TikTok purchase service, you cannot get any type of refund.

✅ The information that you have shared by private message with other users is available and visible to them. However, you won’t be able to access those messages.

Can you recover a deleted TikTok account?

TikTok deletes your entire account within 30 days. During this time, you can back out and recover your account, as it is still visible to the public.

After this time, TikTok deactivates your account permanently.

Think carefully if you want to delete your TikTok account. You have 30 days to recover it.

Another option is to download your published videos to not lose them and then delete your account.
