Age restrictions in the TikTok app do not allow users under 13 years old to register. From the age of the majority, users can create their own accounts on the platform. After the innovations regarding age restrictions, there has been an increased request among users on the topic of how to change the age in the TikTok social network? The answers to this question are discussed below.
Can I change my age in TikTok?
The social network does not have a special function for changing the date of birth. This is due to the fact that many underage users are able to simply change their age so that the administrators do not block the account.
Experienced tiktokers declare that it is easier to create a new account than to change your date of birth. But there is a solution to this problem. It will take a little time to make changes to personal information. The user needs to contact the platform’s support team to change his or her information.
To change your date of birth, you will need:
Launch the app on your smartphone.
Open a personal page.
Click on the “three dots” in the upper right corner
Scroll through the menu, find the “Support” section and click button “Report a Problem”
By contacting the support team, you can expect to change the date of birth in your profile. The team will ask for proof of identity (copy of passport). Persons under 14 years of age do not have such a document, so they will not be able to change their age data.
How do I update my age faster to open private messages?
Personal messaging on the TickTock platform is a messenger that resembles Direct on Instagram. Ticktokers under the age of 16 are not allowed to send private messages. This restriction was imposed due to the software’s policy of protecting the rights of minors.
Most young users accept the rules for using the platform. When a blogger turns 16, he or she will be able to receive and send private messages.
Some authors create a second account, specifying the appropriate age in advance. Content is fully copied in the new account, but in this case it is impossible to move reposts, likes and views. The profile will have to be pumped anew.
You can solve the problem only with the help of moderators by contacting Support. This option is suitable for authors who are at least 16 years old, but mistakenly indicated the wrong age in the account. As proof, the user will submit a document proving his identity.
After verification, the administration allows the exchange of messages. It is possible to change the age in TikTok that was specified during the first registration. This process is not easy, it is available only to a certain age category of people if they provide a passport.
Persons under 14 years of age do not have such a document, so they will not be able to change their age information.
