How Can You switch to a Personal Account on TikTok?

Switching between TikTok accounts is done from the “Manage Accounts” menu in your settings.

Go to Menu – Settings and Privacy – Manage Account – Switch to Personal Account.

Once you select “Switch to Personal Account”, TikTok will make the change immediately.

There are differences between the account types on TikTok.

For instance, if you switch back to your personal account from your business one, you won’t have access to the analytics.

Your Personal account is more user-friendly when watching TikTok, searching for music, and so on.

Either way, you can quickly switch between your accounts, so it’s not an irreversible decision.

Follow the steps below to switch to your personal account on TikTok:

  • Go to Settings
Go to Settings
Go to Settings

If you change your account type, you need to open the TikTok settings.

Do it on a mobile device because the desktop version of TikTok doesn’t offer the necessary settings.

To open the Settings on your mobile device, open the Menu first. It’s the three-dash icon in the top-right corner.

Once you select it, it’ll open a menu at the bottom, showing three options – Creator Tools, Business Suite, Setting, and Privacy.

Tap on “Settings and Privacy” to access TikTok’s settings.

  • Select “Manage Account”
Select “Manage Account”
Select “Manage Account”

Once you access the settings, you’ll see several options.

There’s a list of settings, menus, and submenus.

You need to go to the “Account” menu and select the first option – “Manage Account.”

There’s no need to scroll down because the “Account” menu is first on the list.

The “Manage Account” option lets you edit account-related settings, including your phone number, password, and more.

It also lets you switch between your account types.

  • Tap on “Switch to Personal Account”
Tap on “Switch to Personal Account”
Tap on “Switch to Personal Account”

In the “Manage Account” menu, you only have a few options like “Phone Number,” “Email,” “Password,” “Switch account type,” and “Delete Account.”

Depending on which account type you’re using, you’ll see a different kind of account switch.

For instance, if you’re using the Business account, you’ll see “Switch to Personal Account” in this menu.

If you’re using your Personal account, the option becomes “Switch to Business Account.”

  • Confirm your action
Confirm your action
Confirm your action

After you tap “Switch to Personal Account,” you’ll be asked to confirm.

TikTok will notify you that you’ll lose all Business Account features, including the analytics.

Tap on “Switch anyway” if you understand the instructions and you agree with them.

Switching to your Personal account means you lose other benefits, but you’ll still be responsible for all the violations your business account receives.

Conclusion

TikTok’s different account types appeal to a specific public interested in promoting their businesses on TikTok or creating content.

Regular users will use the Personal account, while business owners can switch to their business accounts for analytics.

Creators can use the Creator account to interact with their followers and promote their content ideas.

To switch between the TikTok accounts, go to Menu – Settings & Privacy – Manage Account – Switch to Personal Account.

That’s it!

Is there a restriction to switching accounts on TikTok?

No, you can switch between your accounts as often as you want. The app won’t stop you from switching between your accounts multiple times daily.

If you accidentally switch to your business account, you can immediately switch back to a personal account.

Many users accidentally switch between their accounts and have to switch back.

It’s not a problem since the switch happens instantly once you follow the steps in this guide.

It’s only a few buttons away!

Why can’t I log into my second TikTok account?

The problem could be your internet connection. If it’s too weak or if it was cut off unexpectedly, you won’t be able to log in to your TikTok account. Sometimes, the TikTok cache might become corrupted.

In this case, you should clear the cache by going to phone Settings – Apps – Manage Apps – TikTok – Clear Data – Clear Cache.

Alternatively, check your Wi-Fi or cellular data connections. If one is too weak, switch to the other.

Eventually, you’ll be able to connect to your second TikTok account without a problem.

TikTok has no reason to stop you from logging in to your account unless you’ve broken the community guidelines.

At that point, you may get banned or restricted from accessing your account.
