There is one very clear reason behind TikTok asking for your birthday, with users required to input this information when they first create and open an account.

TikTok restricts a great deal of content and a series of features from younger users as part of its community guidelines and regulations, ensuring that the app remains a safe place for users of all ages. Inputting your birthday early on when creating your account enables the app to control the features it displays and the kind of content that it recommends to you.

There are some users, however, who claim that the app continues to ask them their birthday every time they log in – which indicates a glitch more than anything else.

How do we know this?

Because changing your birthday on TikTok is not something that the app encourages or makes easy.

Due to this, we can conclude that a regular birthday check in is a glitch that is best overcome by deleting and reinstalling the app or waiting it out and letting the error pass.

What Are the Age Limits on TikTok?

TikTok users must be at least 13 years old in order to open an account.

Users between the ages of 13 and 18 will have their experience restricted by the app.

Any app that is found to be owned by a user younger than 13 years old will be blocked.

All of these guidelines are in place to protect users, with added parental controls accessible to those who want to limit their child’s use of the app and access to content.
