What Does 2 Mutual Connections Mean On Tiktok

When you start using TikTok, the app automatically syncs your phone contacts to allow you to follow friends and other users on the platform. This is a feature that many users do not know about or opt out of, but it's important to understand how your personal contact information is used on the app.

In this article, we will explain how TikTok uses your phone contacts and why you should consider changing the settings that control how your account is accessed by others. We will also provide a few tips on how to keep your privacy on the platform, even if you have declined to sync your contacts when prompted by TikTok in the past.

If you see a green checkmark next to someone's name, it means that person follows you back and you are mutual followers. This is a sign of a strong connection between two people who have similar interests on TikTok.

Getting to know your tiktok pals is a great way to socialize and catch up on fun videos. When you tap on the "find pals" tab on TikTok, you can view the profile of your friends who have downloaded and installed the app. From there, you can either click on their name or use the quick response (QR) scanner to scan their TikCode and begin following them.

Another way TikTok finds and suggests your account to other users is through the new default suggestion feature. By default, the app suggests your account to other users that have your mobile contact number or are Facebook friends of yours, as well as other users who open and share links you send them. You can change the default suggestion setting on your app's privacy settings.
