TikTok has become a popular social media platform where users create, share, and discover short videos. It’s particularly popular among younger users due to its features that make lip-syncing, singing, and dancing easier. However, there may come a time when you want to delete your TikTok account. This guide will walk you through the process of deleting your TikTok account without a password.
Before you proceed, it’s important to note that deactivating your TikTok account means losing all of your data and videos. However, TikTok provides a 30-day grace period if you reconsider your decision to delete your account. If you’re certain about your decision, the following methods will be of great assistance to you.
