If you are looking for methods to turn off invites on TikTok, this guide is meant to help you better use the video app.

Recently, many TikTok users have been complaining about getting too many spam invites to random videos. These unwelcome spam invites, seemingly from bots, can disrupt your TikTok experience and clutter your notifications tab.

In this guide, we address the pressing matter head-on, offering actionable solutions to turn off invites on TikTok and combat spam invites effectively.

How to turn off invites on TikTok

If you are spammed by the "Invited you to add" requests on TikTok, you would be delighted to know that there is a way to put an end to it and enjoy a spam-free TikTok experience.

Here is how to turn off invites on TikTok:

  • Go to Creator tools > Add Yours
  • Tap on the three dots and switch it to "No one"

To some people, the "Add Yours" option might not be available in the Creator tools menu. If you are one of them, your only option to get rid of the spam invites is to block and report the accounts sending them. Unfortunately, there are not other options at the moment.

But still, blocking all the accounts doesn't guarantee a complete solution. While blocking and reporting spam accounts can help reduce the frequency of spam invites, it's possible that new spam accounts may still find their way into your notifications.

What is "Add Yours" on TikTok?

"Add Yours" on TikTok is a feature that allows users to respond to a TikTok prompt by sharing photos or videos related to the given theme or topic.

For example, if the prompt is "Show us your favourite travel destination," TikTok users would respond by sharing videos or photos of their favourite travel destinations, obviously.

TikTok recently added a new feature that allows users to invite others to add to a prompt. Unfortunately, this feature has led to bots exploiting it.

People are getting spammed by invites to add to prompts. We can hope that TikTok will take measures to address this issue or remove the invite feature altogether.

In the meantime, you can turn off invites on TikTok by following the method outlined in the previous section. We will update the guide as soon as we have a more secure method to resolve this issue.

And that concludes our guide. While you are here, check out our other TikTok guides including how to turn on dark mode on TikTok for Android and how to fix 0 views on TikTok.
