If you’re looking for a way to avoid seeing certain content on tiktok without unfollowing the person who’s producing it, you might be interested in learning how to mute someone. This will effectively hide their videos from your feed but won’t prevent them from being able to interact with you via comments or direct messages. Muted users won’t know they have been muted, making it a great option for those who want to minimize unwanted interactions without putting anyone on edge or potentially having an awkward confrontation.

To mute someone on tiktok, simply navigate to their profile and select the “Mute” button. You’ll be prompted to confirm, and their content will no longer appear in your For You page or notifications. If you decide to unmute them, their videos will reappear in your TikTok feed.

You can also mute viewers during a live video. If you want to stop them from being able to comment during your broadcast, simply tap on their profile image in the viewer list and select ‘Manage’ from the drop-down menu that appears. Then choose the length of time you want to mute them for.

The beauty of muting is that it’s less aggressive than blocking, so you can still keep in contact with the person if you want to. However, if you find yourself unable to tolerate the posts they’re making or the way they’re behaving on Instagram, then you may want to consider blocking them completely.
