TikTok is the most popular and widely used video-sharing platform for entertainment. When users create an account on TikTok, it’s stringent to mention the user’s age so that age-specific content will be delivered to them.
Some features of TikTok are also age-specific, like users less than the age of 18 years are not allowed to use private messaging or live streaming.
That’s why some users intentionally mention their incorrect age and faced a ban. On the other hand, some users add incorrect age by mistake and they want to change it and mention their actual age. But they don’t know how to do it, if you are also one of them then you are in safe hands.
