How to turn off age restriction on TikTok



If you are looking for ways to turn off the age restriction on TikTok with or without password, you are in the right place!

TikTok has a restricted mode in place to remove 18+ content (the viral Princess Peach trend, for example) from the "For You" page of minors. Interestingly, it looks like a lot of adult TikTok users are also blocked from viewing age-restricted content because TikTok thinks they are underage.

Before we begin, in case you entered the wrong age when signing up, it may be causing the problem, and you can fix the issue by changing your age on TikTok.

How to turn off age restriction on TikTok

While auto-scrolling through the TikTok feed, several people have found that some of the videos refuse to play. Instead, the video is greyed out with the error message, "Video unavailable. This content is age-restricted."

If you have found yourself in this situation, it is possible that you have mistakenly turned on the restricted mode. If that's the case, follow the steps below to get yourself out of the restricted mode.

  • Open TikTok and go to your profile page.
  • Tap the 3-line menu in the top right.
  • Press Settings and privacy.
  • Tap Digital Wellbeing in the Content & Activity section.
  • Tap Restricted Mode and enter the four-digit PIN you created when setting up Restricted Mode.
  • Once the passcode has been accepted, the Restricted Mode should now be off.

In case the Restricted Mode is already set to 'Off' but you're still getting the age-restricted error message, you'll need to reach out to TikTok's customer support and get help directly.

Probably, it should be a bug and they will be able to help you out with it. You can contact them by tweeting or sending a direct message to the @TikTokSupport account on Twitter.

How to turn off the age restriction on TikTok without password

If you have enabled the age restriction or Restricted Mode on TikTok and can't remember the passcode you set up, you may find it challenging to turn off the restriction. The passcode is necessary to disable Restricted Mode.

Although there is an option to change the passcode, it is not possible if you can't recall the original passcode you set. In such a situation, the only option is to contact the TikTok support.

When contacting the support team, they may require you to verify your identity to ensure the account belongs to you. This typically involves providing a photo identification document such as a driver's license, passport, or ID card.

By following these steps and providing the necessary information, you can seek help from TikTok support to turn off the age restriction on TikTok when you've forgotten the passcode.
