The first step is to download the TikTok app from either iOS or Google Play store.
Once downloaded you’ll want to setup an account. You can register an account with an email address, mobile phone number or social media connection.
As standard the app assigns you a randomly generated username. However, you need to check this and confirm that there are no privacy issues as it may be based on the email address provided.
To change your username tap the icon in the bottom right of the screen that says “Me”. You’ll then be presented with the following screen.
|The red pen icon can be used to update your username.|
The camera and avatar icon can be used to upload a custom photo from your phone.
Click “tap to add bio” to add a short (80 charaters) bio for your account. This can include links to external websites
Links can also be added to Instagram and Youtube accounts. TikTok is intermittently rolling out an external clickable link field as well which may be available from the edit profile page.
