Often times, when commenting on someone else's content, Tiktokers do not respect the bounds of decency. This is fraught with blocking in Tik Tok by the author of the video..
This feature is present in other social networks as well, and its principle differs from platform to platform. This article discusses the intricacies of blocking users on TikTok.
How to block an account on TikTok
The procedure takes less than a minute, as it requires a couple of steps. This type of blocking works only if you want to restrict the user from interacting with your profile..
Follow the instructions below:
- Go to the application and log in to your account.
- Then find the page that you want to send to the blacklist. Open his profile.
- In the upper right corner there will be an icon with three dots. Tap on it to open an additional menu.
- In the functions, find the inscription "Block". Click on it.
- The user will lose access to your content and page.
You will not achieve a full ban in the application, since this decision is behind the Tik Tok moderators and the system. You can file a complaint about TikToker, but one or two won't be enough.
Blocking a user through a complaint in TikTok
Site users think that they can only complain about video clips, but this is not the case. In the application, you can send complaints about another Tiktoker and its channel, as well as about individual videos..
To send a complaint about a specific person in Tik Tok:
- Go to your account and find the person you want to report.
- Open his page and tap on the three dots in the upper right corner.
- Select the "Complaint" item. Here you will need to indicate what does not suit you in this account.
You can send a slander on a video clip in the Tik Tok recommendation feed or in the search section. Open the desired video and tap on three points on the right side. Then select the "Complaint" function and indicate the reasons.
Before sending an email to TikTok technical support in both cases, it is important to make sure that you are doing it with pure intentions.
If you are annoyed by a user or you are jealous of his popularity, it is better not to take rash actions, since the reasons are personal. These slander will not be considered.
It is also important to support the complaint message with evidence-screenshots so that the moderators are immediately convinced of the violations. This will block the unwanted account faster.
If it so happened that complaints were poured on your account and it was sent to the block, in our blog we have already told you how to unblock Tik Tok.
View blocked accounts in TikTok
The profiles that you have restricted access to your page are located in your settings section. Go to them and tap on the item "Confidentiality".
Then scroll through all the items and find the inscription "Blocked". Those you have blocked are located here.
You can view their pages, interact with their content, but you won't get any feedback until you remove them from your blacklist.
The risk that your profile will be sent back to Blocked is high, so sometimes you may not have access.

How to recover a blocked account in TikTok
You can quickly unblock your blacklisted TikToker account. To do this, follow the steps below:
- go to your account and open the settings. To do this, tap on the three dots in the upper right corner of the profile,
- open the "Privacy" section, and then go down to the bottom of the list,
- click on "Blocked". In this section, the accounts that you block are added,
- opposite the profile nickname there will be a button "Unblock". Tap on it and the user will be able to interact with your content.
Try not to overuse the procedure because it will look like a programmatic action. The system can classify them as a threat to the platform, and you yourself will be banned or blocked.
How to return access to a page in TikTok
When a Tiktoker adds another to the blacklist, the latter cannot contact him. It is impossible to get around this rule in the usual ways, so you will have to come up with other options.
A blocked user can create a new page on TikTok and talk to the blogger in PM. It is important not to be rude or provoke, so as not to get banned again.
Explain the reasons for the behavior and promise the person not to do this, and he can pull your real account out of the block. Also, asking your friends to write to a TikToker blogger about this is the right idea.
The methods do not guarantee that the person will agree to the request. If the violation was serious or offensive, you can get banned again from a new profile.
Why is TikTok banned?
When a user interacts with other TikTokers, they do so in a positive or negative way. The abundance of negativity and anger in the comments, sending complaints and inappropriate behavior in someone else's account - this usually leads to the blocking of the ill-wisher.
It is not difficult to understand that you are blacklisted by another person - access to your account will be lost. In such situations, the support service will not help, since everything depends on the ad blocker.
If he removes the page from his blacklist, access will appear. Otherwise, you will have to create a new profile or forget about this person.
How to avoid blocking in Tik Tok
If you do not want to be blacklisted by a user, it is important to follow the rules. But this is not the only requirement. Here you will have to take into account the reaction of the tiktoker to his own actions, since it is not the system that determines whether you will find yourself in the block or not.
To do this, follow what you write in the comments. Negative and sarcastic messages will anger the person and over time they will block you.
Also keep an eye on your content when you shoot video responses. An inadequate reaction to videos of other users provokes them to be sent to the blacklist of authors.
Be respectful of TikTokers whose content you want to watch later. If using criticism, don't go overboard and write objectively.
Also, Tik Tok does not like spam in comments and messages, so do not write many responses in a short period. Otherwise, productive "cooperation" with the Tiktoker will not work, because no one likes inappropriate behavior.
