How To Delete ALL Your Tik Tok Posts
Restarting and refreshing is a good idea from time to time. Perhaps you want to rebrand yourself and your current videos don’t cut it. You might want to get everything off your chest after your TikTok breakup but don’t want to change the name of your account. You can delete all of your videos using the instructions in this tutorial without having to delete your account.
With over 150 million daily users and millions of downloads, TikTok is currently among the most widely used social networks. Since it replaced Music.ly, it has only gotten better, expanding greatly and reaching millions of people all over the world. It started out as a lip-syncing app, and that still makes up a sizable portion of it today, but it has grown into something else.
TikTok can be a great place to express yourself creatively, but there may be times when you need to move on or want to start over. In TikTok, reinventing yourself is just as simple as it is on social media. You have two options: wipe your account and start fresh, or delete all of your TikTok posts.
Delete All Your TikTok posts
Even though the platform doesn’t want you to delete videos, it does make it easy to do so. The good thing is that it takes just three taps to delete a video.
The downside is that you cannot bulk delete them so if you have dozens, or hundreds, of videos you’re going to be there for a while!
To delete a TikTok post:
- Open TikTok and select ‘Account.’
- Select TikTok Gallery and scroll to the video you want to delete.
- Select the three-dot menu icon and tap Delete (on iOS it’s an arrow).
- Repeat steps 1-3 for every video you have on TikTok.
This process is irreversible so once you tap delete there is no going back. You’re going to have to do this for every video you have uploaded, but once done the videos are gone for good!
There is no way to delete videos from your account in bulk without a third-party app. If you are interested in mass video deletion you can search for a TikTok managing app, but there are not currently any available.
How to Delete All TikTok Drafts
You can save videos on TikTok to upload later whether you’re an established creator or just getting started. But what do you do if your video roll is chock-full of unpublished drafts?
Thankfully, there is a workaround that will allow you to delete all of your TikTok drafts without actually deleting anything.
Simply uninstall and reinstall TikTok or clear the cache in your phone’s settings to delete all drafts. Be careful because doing this will permanently delete all of your drafts from your account. You must save any one or two that you want to keep first.
How to Delete a TikTok Account
The best course of action is to delete your TikTok account if you really want to delete all of your photos but there are too many to delete individually, you’re not that attached to your account, or you want a completely blank slate. You will lose all the content you uploaded and any Followers you may have, but a new account gives you unlimited opportunity for reinvention.
To delete a TikTok account:
- Open TikTok and select ‘Account.’
- Select the three-dot menu icon in the top right of the screen.
- Select ‘Manage account.’
- Select ‘Phone Number’ and add your number.
- Wait for a 6 digit code to be sent via SMS and enter that into your TikTok app.
- Now, tap ‘Delete account.’
- You will be asked if you will continue on account deletion, confirm by tapping Continue.
- Enter the code into the app and select Delete account.
- Select Delete to confirm account deletion.
You typically have 30 days to retrieve your account and all of its content (yes, your videos will come back too, we thought of that as a workaround already). Your TikTok account cannot be recovered after 30 days.
Starting TikTok Fresh
You can create a new account and restart after deleting your old one. You can simply have a fresh start by being who you want to be, trying something novel, putting old problems behind you, and being yourself. There are a variety of reasons why you might decide to delete an old TikTok account, but regardless, here’s how to do it.
There was a time when hundreds of users required resets after being locked out of their accounts. Your account was deactivated if your response time was too long. The steps listed below apply to you as well.
- Open the TikTok app on your device.
- Enter your birthday at the prompt.
- Select ‘Sign up with Phone Number or Email’ and choose one.
- Enter your details then tap Next.
- Complete the puzzle or Captcha to prove you’re human.
- Select a password then tap Next.
- Select a username then tap Sign up.
Once complete, your new TikTok account should be live. From here you can begin finding people to follow, make new friends, start uploading, and do all those things that make TikTok such a cool place to hang out and spend time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I delete all of my TikTok videos at once?
Unfortunately, you cannot delete all of your videos from TikTok at once. Within the application, there is no option for the mass selection. Of course, we think that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
Many users claim that you can mass delete your TikTok videos using ES File Explorer, but unless you have thousands of videos, it’s not really practical because it can no longer be downloaded from the Google Play Store or the App Store. Additionally, it appears that only the files on your device are deleted, not your TikTok account.
Is there a way to recover deleted TikTok videos?
According to official statements, once you delete a video from TikTok, it is permanently deleted. If you’ve saved it to your phone, you might be able to recover it.
There are also many apps and websites that claim to be able to recover deleted videos; however, many of these don’t work while others are frauds attempting to access your account. Beware of the risks and read the reviews if you decide to use a third-party video recovery tool.
Can I bulk delete drafts?
Despite the fact that TikTok doesn’t offer a bulk delete option for drafts, both Android and iOS users can easily and quickly delete every single one of them. You can delete all the Drafts saved to your TikTok account by clearing the app’s cache. Unfortunately, once you’ve published the videos, this won’t work.
Go to your phone’s settings to accomplish this. Android users must first select “Apps,” then “TikTok,” and then “Clear Cache.” Scroll down to TikTok and select “Offload App” if you’re an Apple user. Your login information, along with your other account information and posted videos, will be saved, but the Drafts will vanish (permanently).
Deleting all your TikTok videos or your entire account isn’t for the faint-hearted. It means all your hard work disappears never to be seen again. It’s a big move but could be just what you need to make a fresh start. Good luck with it!
