Are you tired of seeing the same people pop up in your TikTok feed? You’ll need to wipe your friend’s list. Here’s how to unfollow everyone on TikTok.
Got carried away and followed too many new accounts on your TikTok account?
The problem with this is your recommendations—your TikTok feed will fill with recommended videos from accounts you follow. If you aren’t enjoying that content, you might want to reset the clock and unfollow everyone on TikTok.
While you can’t bulk unfollow natively in the TikTok app, there are a few workarounds you can try. Here’s how to unfollow everyone on TikTok.
How to Unfollow Individuals on TikTok
Within the TikTok app, it’s not possible to unfollow everyone at once. You can, however, unfollow individual accounts. If you’re not following too many people, unfollowing each of them in turn won’t take too long to do.
To unfollow someone on TikTok:
- Open the TikTok app.
- Tap on the Profile icon in the bottom-right corner.
- Tap Following.
- You will see a list of the accounts you are following. To unfollow someone, tap on Following next to their name.
- The button will change to Follow, showing that you are no longer following that account.
- Repeat the process for any accounts you want to unfollow.
How to Block Individuals on TikTok
Another way to stop seeing posts from an account that you currently follow is to block that account. Blocking someone not only stops you from seeing their posts, but also disables them from viewing your videos, or leaving comments or likes on your posts.
To block someone on TikTok:
- Launch the TikTok app.
- Tap on the Profile icon.
- Tap Following underneath your profile name.
- Select the person you are following that you want to block and tap on their name.
- Tap the three-dots icon in the top-right.
- Select Block.
- To confirm your decision, tap Block.
- The account is now blocked. You can repeat the process if you want to unblock them.
How to Unfollow Everyone on TikTok using a Chrome Extension
If you’re following a large number of people, unfollowing them all one-by-one isn’t a practical option. Even if you have the time, unfollowing more than 200 accounts in quick succession could lead to your account being flagged by TikTok.
The good news is that there are apps you can use to unfollow everyone. These apps automatically unfollow accounts you’re following over a period of time so that your account isn’t flagged up for suspicious activity. These apps often charge for their services.
If you don’t want to pay to unfollow everyone on TikTok, you can use a free Chrome extension that will unfollow all of your accounts for you instead.
To unfollow everyone on TikTok using TikTok Unfollower:
- Open a Chrome browser window.
- Find TikTok Unfollower in the Google Chrome store.
- Click Add to Chrome.
- If you’re happy to grant the permissions, click Add Extension.
- If you can’t see the next extension in the menu bar, select the Extensions icon.
- Click the Pin icon next to TikTok Unfollower to pin it to the menu bar.
- Open the TikTok website in a new tab and sign in.
- Click Following.
- Next, select the TikTok Unfollower icon from your extensions.
- Set the Min and Max number of seconds you want to leave between each account being unfollowed. The extension will unfollow at random intervals between these two values.
- Set the Limit for accounts to unfollow. It’s best to keep this below 200 at a time.
- Click Start.
- The extension will now unfollow the accounts that you are following. You can leave it to run—it will continue until the limit you set is reached, or all of your accounts are unfollowed.
