Perhaps you feel rebellious, or maybe you chose not to create a TikTok account. You can still get some use out of the app, and this post will provide information on how to use TikTok on a mobile device without ever creating an account.

Can you use TikTok without an account?

Yes, you can browse TikTok without having an account by using the TikTok app or the website. Without an account, you can browse and watch videos but you can’t post your own videos or leave comments.

TikTok users can create accounts by signing up with their phone number, Facebook or Google account, or through the app itself. Users who sign up get access to additional features, like the ability to reply to comments, upload videos, and message others.

Fortunately, signing up for TikTok takes only a few minutes and is free of charge.
