How to Block People on TikTok
TikTok unfollow apps let you unfollow multiple users. However, you may want to stop seeing the post from one or a few users and might not need a third party app.
You can do this by blocking people on TikTok. Here's how to block people on TikTok:
Open the TikTok app
Tap on the Profile icon at the lower right corner
Click on Following below your username
Select a user profile
Click on the three vertical dots at the top right corner
How to Discover and Unfollow Banned Account
TikTok bans users who violate their community guidelines, and people on your Following list may get banned. Here's how to discover them and unfollow them:
Head to your TikTok profile page
Click on Following
Type TikToker in the search bar
Banned accounts on your list won't have a profile picture and have TikToker below their username. Plus, you will see "account banned" when you open the profile
Click on Following to unfollow banned users.
Banned accounts prevent your content from going viral, as they can engage with it. Clean them up and build connections with new users interested in your content.
How to Avoid a TikTok Ban
A permanent TikTok prevents you from accessing your TikTok account. This is dreadful, mainly when you have dedicated time to building your presence and amassing loyal followers. But there are ways to prevent TikTok from banging the gavel on your account.
This requires you to learn TikTok community guidelines. So, here are some activities that can get you a TikTok ban:
Distributing Content that Promotes Violence
TikTok focuses on creating a safe space for its users. Hence, individuals promoting dangerous activities threatening public safety may get suspended or banned.
Distributing Sexually Explicit Content
Content that promotes nudity or is unsafe for work can lead to a TikTok ban. Also, the platform doesn't support harmful content that glorifies the grooming of minors.
Sharing Content that Promotes Self-Harm
TikTok doesn't support content that shows self-harm, including eating disorders, self-injury, and suicidal activities.
Plus, content encouraging people to engage in risky stunts in an unprofessional context violates TikTok's community guidelines.
Sharing Violent Content
Content promoting extreme gore, like fatal accidents and injuries, goes against the platform's guidelines. Likewise, posting videos that depict human or animal cruelty can get you kicked out of the platform.
