Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How To Stop Follow Requests On TikTok:

To stop ‘Follow Requests’ on the TikTok app, switch your account to ‘Public’ from ‘Private’. In a private account, to see your activity, people have to send you a ‘Follow request’ and if you accept, then you can follow you.

However, it is the opposite in the case of the ‘Public’ account. If someone likes your content and wishes to follow you, he just needs to tap on the ‘Follow; button and he can start following you. No stress to accept the ‘Follow request’ and other stuff.

2. How to Know if Someone Declined Your Follow Request on TikTok?

If the “Requested” button is turned to the “Follow” button, this means, the person has declined your ‘Follow request’. 

This is in the way when you wish to follow someone, you go to his profile page and tap on the “Follow” button. This ‘Follow’ button, changes to ‘Requested’, indicating that you have requested that person to allow you to see his/her TikTok feeds and TikTok has sent him/her the request.

But, when you again come back to the same person’s account and see the “Follow” button, which was turned to ‘Requested’, this clearly states, that he has rejected your ‘Follow Request’.
