Top Tip – Save On Cellular Data Plans
Did you know that TikTok video uploads and downloads can eat into your cellular data plans? So, our first tip for you is to choose an unlimited internet package.
Choose from time-based unlimited data packages on offer by Sri Lanka’s leading cellular networks. Many service providers like Hutch offer both 3G and 4G data plans to choose from.
Learn How To Hide Your Liked Videos
Want to improve your privacy on TikTok, and not let everyone who visits your profile see the videos you liked? If you want to keep things private, go to:
· Settings – choose Privacy and Safety – then you get the option of ‘who can view your liked video’.
· Choose ‘only me’ – a lock will appear on your video tab meaning the option is set.
Activate Restricted Mode to Get Rid of Unnecessary Videos
With millions of TikTok users using the platform to upload their videos, one cannot control the content, which is both good and bad. And, you don’t always get the best content on your TikTok recommendations and newsfeed. To control this factor, activate ‘restricted mode’:
· Open the app – choose the ‘Me’ button – click the three-dot menu there – tap on ‘Digital Wellbeing’ listed under general settings.
· Choose ‘Restricted Mode’ listed there. Turn on ‘Restricted Mode’.
You will now get filtered material only as per your preference settings.
You can even choose to restrict certain types of video by clicking the three-dot button on the video and choose ‘not interested’ after which TikTok will not recommend you similar videos.
Manage Your TikTok Login Sessions
How many times have you logged into your TikTok account from the phone of your friends or family members and forgotten to log out?
Avoid leaving your account open to other devices by clicking on the ‘Me’ button located on the apps home screen;
· Choose the ‘Manage My Account’ setting, then choose ‘Security’.
· You will find a list of all devices your account is logged into; you can then log out from them and manage your account settings.
