Two reasons are common for people to have multiple social media accounts. They may want to have another profile if their primary one is hacked or damaged. A second reason is to create a business account, link it, or manage it through a personal account. You can create separate accounts on most social media platforms. TikTok allows you to create multiple accounts.
This guide will show you how to create multiple TikTok accounts. It’s easy because TikTok also allows you to log in through other social networks. This is a login by linking your profile. This is not the only method for creating an account. This is the one that requires you to create an account with an email ID and some personal information. Let’s dive into the details.
How to add multiple accounts on TikTok
Tap on “Add Account” to create or modify an existing account.
You can create a new account by taping on one of the many signup options. You must make sure you are not using the same signup option as your main account.
You can also log in to an existing account if you have it.
You can do this by clicking on “Log In” at the bottom.
After creating a new account, you can quickly switch accounts by tapping on the dropdown menu on your profile.
Next, tap the account you wish to switch to.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to adding multiple accounts to TikTok

1. Navigate to your TikTok account and tap the dropdown arrow.
Open TikTok > Tap on the “Me” icon at the bottom of the navigation bar.
Tap on the dropdown Arrow on your profile to begin.
Firstly, open TikTok on your mobile device.
TikTok is not recommended for use on a desktop because you can’t add multiple accounts to it.

Once you tap on the “Me,” you will land on your profile.
Your TikTok username will be displayed on your profile.

The tick indicates that the account you are currently logged into is the one with the tick.
Contrary to popular belief, the account that does not have the tick is the one you are logged out from. You must first add an additional account if you have not already.
To create a TikTok account, click on “Add account” near the bottom of your menu.
It will be used to create a TikTok account or log in to an account you already have.
3. Register for a new account
Register for a new account, or log in to an already existing account.
After you click on “Add account,” the signup page will appear.
You’ll find several signup options on the signup page. These include “Continue by phone or email,” “Continue With Facebook,” “Continue With Apple,” and “Continued with Google.”
To expand the signup options, you can tap the dropdown arrow.
You’ll find a link to log in at the bottom of this page. You can create a second TikTok account if you don’t already have one. But, you should not use the signup option as your primary account. If you have signed up with Facebook, you will need to use another signup option (e.g., To create a new account, use Google.
You can log in to an account you have created in the past by clicking on the login option at the bottom of the page.
To create a new account, follow the last step.

To create a new account, follow the instructions on-screen.
After you have tapped on the signup option in the previous step, enter your birthday.
You must be at least 13 years of age to sign up for a TikTok Account.
The app will not allow you to sign up if you are under 13 years old. When choosing your birthday, ensure that you choose an age over 13.
Next, enter your email address or phone number.
Next, choose a password and tap the tick icon to confirm the signup.
After you have entered your email address, look in your email for a verification code and tap on it to verify that account.
To prevent TikTok from marking you as a spam/bot account, verify your account.
To add additional accounts to the app, you can repeat these steps.
Switch Between Various Accounts
Now, let’s check out how to switch between one account to another. This we can do from multiple devices provided we are already logged in. Otherwise, we have to enter credentials and log in first.
- Launch TikTok app
- Go to Me > tap on your account name [it will have a drop-down arrow symbol]
- You will see the list of accounts you have on TikTok signed up through various channels
- Tap on the account which you wish to access
So, that’s how you can create and log in to multiple TikTok accounts. If you are just a regular user without any business requirement, then create accounts from different emails or devices. Try it out, and in my opinion, two accounts will suffice. Also, it is better to manage.
Having a backup account is good if you have a lot of content or different kinds of content to share. In case one account becomes inaccessible, you can manage the platform with the second account. I hope this guide was informative.
There are many reasons to have multiple TikTok accounts
Sharing videos with multiple people
You don’t want your friends to see your funny dog video, but you do not want them to know your music tastes. This can be done by creating a separate account with a different username and uploading videos without sharing your main account. This is a great way to create multiple groups and communities on TikTok.
Multiple social media profiles for different purposes
Are you a professional or an entertainment user? Perhaps you have two accounts: one dedicated to hobbies and one for family and friends. TikTok allows you to manage all of your accounts using the two accounts feature. When you need to switch between accounts, you can always go back to your main account.
TikTok business account
TikTok allows you to create an additional account with your business name. You can use this account to promote products, services, and/or use TikTok ads. You can also create an account for your company or brand that will look better than your personal profile.
You can create an account to make it easy for you to manage your information without having to share any of your personal data. As a marketing tool, you can use multiple accounts for different brands within the same company.
TikTok accounts for fans
If you’re a social media influencer, having a second account is a great way to grow your online community and reach new people. You can switch between the accounts and post videos from each one.
These are just a few of the many reasons you might consider having more than one TikTok account. All of them can be enjoyed while remaining within the limits of the app Terms and Conditions.
Multiple TikTok accounts are a necessity for the present. It serves as a buffer against temporary blocks and bans like the shadowban. Due to the content of their posts, several TikTokers were banned from their accounts. They were able to continue making videos using their second or third accounts. Therefore, it is a good idea to have two TikTok accounts.
