Tiktok - Your Friends Will Get Notified When You Repo a Video on Your For You Page

Tiktok is a popular app that allows users to create short videos. It also lets users follow other accounts, see their posts, and watch live events. It has become very popular with young people and can be used for a variety of reasons, including learning how to draw or skateboard or expressing themselves. However, there are some dangers of using the app, such as cyberbullying. This can lead to insecurities and even serious mental health issues in teenagers. It is important to set appropriate privacy and security settings on the app to minimize this risk.

Recently, Tiktok added a feature that will notify your friends when you repost their video on your For You page. This is intended to help creators promote their content and gain more views and followers. But it has also been criticized for increasing the chances of unwanted notifications and for taking away some level of anonymity on the platform.

There is no definite answer as to why TikTok sometimes suggests a person to follow, saying they are one of your contacts when they are not. It may be due to a glitch in the system or it could be because of something that the user has done unintentionally. In either case, it is best to report this to Tiktok as soon as possible so they can take the appropriate action.

You can disable this feature by going to your settings and selecting the option that says “only me” under the privacy section. This will prevent anyone from seeing what you’ve liked on the app and will make it much more difficult for them to find out who you are. You can also block followers on the app so they can’t view your profile. If you are unable to prevent someone from knowing who you are, you can always delete your account, but this should only be done in extreme circumstances.
