Tiktok is a short-form video and music platform that has seen rapid growth. This had led to a certain amount of vulnerability, particularly thanks to the app’s popularity with children.

So what should you do if you or your child are the victims of abusive or harassing videos? Here are the best ways to have unwanted videos removed from TikTok.

1. Message the Content Creator

In most cases the content creator may be willing to remove the offending video if you ask. Click on the content creator’s name at the bottom of the video. On their page, click the three-dotted icon at the top left. Then press the message icon and ask them politely to remove the video in question.

2. Report the Video to TikTok

If the creator is uncooperative you can report the video directly to TikTok. Hold your finger on the offending video. On the menu that pops up click the ‘report’ button. Select the most relevant option from the following menu. If you’re featured in a video and want it removed you should select ‘other’ and provide TikTok with details on why you want the video taken down.

3. Contact TikTok Directly
