Sometimes you need to separate the wheat from the chaff and unfollow accounts you don’t receive any value from on the platform. If it’s time to purge TikTok accounts, you need to know the correct strategy for the process.

It’s simple and only takes a few clicks. This post shows how to unfollow users on TikTok for iOS and Android devices.

How Do I Unfollow Someone on TikTok?

To unfollow a specific TikTok account, visit their page and press the person icon. TikTok won’t notify the user that you unfollowed them. This process works on Android and iOS devices.

Step 1

Open the profile page of the person you wish to unfollow. You can either select their profile image on the right of their videos or open the “Discover” tab or search bar and enter the username. The algorithm searches the platform and presents the account to you.

Step 2

You’ll notice a checkmark on the person icon if you follow them. Tap it, and you’ll unfollow them. You’ll see one line if they are following you and you’re not following them back. Two lines appear on the icon if you’re following each other.

How Do I Unfollow Multiple People at Once on TikTok?

If you want to unfollow several creators at once, you can declutter your feed using the multiple unfollow strategy.

Step 1

View your list of accounts you follow by visiting your profile and tapping ‘Following’ directly under your profile image.

Step 2

You’ll see a list of everyone you follow. If you want to unfollow someone, tap the ‘Following’ icon, which changes to ‘Follow.’

You can unfollow multiple accounts at a time. We recommend unfollowing a maximum of 20 users at once to avoid the TikTok algorithm, assuming you’re running bot software for the unfollowing task.

How Do I Unfollow Everyone I Follow on TikTok?

There is no method for unfollowing all your accounts at once. You’ll have to use the manual process. Never use bot software to manage your following and follow or delete accounts. The algorithm will detect this behavior and ban your account.

What Does Unfollowing Someone Do on TikTok?

When you follow someone on TikTok, the platform places their videos in your feed. Unfollowing the user removes their content from your feed. You’ll be able to find them using the search function or the “For You” page.

Unfollowing someone won’t notify them of your activity. The user has to visit your profile or their list of followers to see the result. Unfollowing a user won’t delete comments they made on your videos or the comments and likes you made on their videos. It also won’t affect your downloaded videos from the user.
