How to mute someone on tiktok

If you are annoyed by another user’s comments and videos on tiktok but don’t want to unfollow them or block them, it’s a good idea to mute them. This way, you’ll avoid any messages they send to you and also will not be reminded of their videos on your TikTok feed. However, this can backfire if the person realizes you’ve muted them and will try to reach out or message you directly, as they may be concerned that they’ve been blocked.

In order to mute someone on tiktok, you’ll need to open the Direct Messages page within your TikTok app and look for the person that you want to mute. Once you find them, tap on their profile picture and a window will appear with the options to report, mute, and block them. Select the ‘Mute’ option and you’ll be presented with a list of durations you can use, such as 30 seconds or 5 minutes.

When you mute someone, their previous comments will be removed and any future comments they attempt to make will not show up until the muting period has passed. However, it’s important to note that if they continue to comment on other people’s videos or create their own videos, you will still see them, but their comments may be buried amongst the rest of the community’s feedback. It’s best to mute them for longer periods of time if you don’t want them commenting on your content.
