TikTok’s repost button allows users to share their favorite videos with friends. This handy feature sends the videos you repost to your friends’ For You pages.
Some TikTok users have trouble finding the repost button, while others accidentally repost videos. This guide explains how to repost on TikTok and remove reposts made by mistake.
How to Repost Videos on TikTok
TikTok’s repost feature offers users an easy way to share videos with their friends. Hitting “Share” makes the video show up on your friends’ For You pages. Users can add a message to tell their friends what was so great about the video they’re sharing.
Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Launch Your TikTok App
Find a video you’d like to share with your friends. Tap it.
Step 2: Tap the ‘Share’ Icon
You can find the “Share” icon in the menu on the right of your app. It’s right at the bottom and looks like a right-facing arrow.
Tap the icon to share the video.
Step 3: Choose ‘Repost’ From the ‘Send to’ Menu
Tapping “Share” opens the “Send to” menu.
“Repost” is the first option. You’ll find it in the top left corner. The repost button looks like a yellow circle with two white arrows.
Step 4: Caption Your Repost
TikTok will invite you to caption your repost so that your friends know why you think they should watch it. Write a short message in the “Add your thoughts…” bar.
Reposting videos on TikTok is that easy!
How to Undo a Repost on TikTok
Have you accidentally reposted a TikTok video, or did you change your mind? Removing a repost is just as straightforward.
If you want to get rid of a repost, retrace your steps:
Step 1: Find the Video and Hit the ‘Share’ Button
Tapping the “Share” button again opens the “Send to” menu.
Step 2: Tap ‘Remove Repost’
You can get rid of a repost in the same way you make one.
Once you’re in the “Send to” menu again, find the yellow button in the top left corner. It now says “Remove repost.”
Tap the button.
Step 3: Confirm That You Want to Remove Your Repost
TikTok will ask you to confirm your choice with a pop-up that says: “Remove your repost? This will also delete your message.”
Tap “remove” to get rid of the repost or “cancel” to keep the repost.
How to Turn TikTok’s Repost Feature Off
TikTokers who’ve accidentally reposted videos multiple times might want to turn the repost feature off.
Open your TikTok app and follow along:
Step 1: Go to Your Profile
Tap the “Me” button in the bottom right to access your TikTok profile.
Step 2: Tap the Hamburger Menu
You’ll find the hamburger menu, which looks like three horizontal lines, in the top right corner. Tap it.
Step 3: Choose ‘Settings and Privacy’
Next, select “Privacy” and then “Safety.”
Step 4: Find ‘Repost’
Scroll down to find “Repost” and toggle the option off.
You’ll never make another accidental repost!
How Does TikTok’s Repost Feature Work?
TikTokers who wanted to share videos had to download and repost them manually before the platform added the repost feature. They risked copyright violations in the process.
The repost feature fixes that. You can now share videos with your friends at the click of a button.
Reposting a TikTok video doesn’t add it to your own account. Instead, reposting a video sends it to your friends’ For You pages. Tell your friends what’s so great about the video in a little caption to boost engagement.
A Final Word
You can repost videos on TikTok by tapping the “Share” button and selecting “Repost.” Your friends will see your reposted videos on their For You pages.
Do you want to remove a repost? Just go through the same steps again. Are you fed up with the repost feature? It’s easy to turn off. Do this by choosing “Settings and privacy” in your profile tab and toggling “Repost” off.
