How To Undo a Repost On TikTok - phone with background

If you are looking for a little guidance on how to undo a repost on TikTok, then you have come to the right place.

The TikTok repost feature is the latest addition to the app. As the name suggests, the repost feature allows users to quickly repost TikTok Duets or other short videos that they see on their For You page.

Although reposting and un-reposting videos are pretty straightforward, apparently, some people are struggling to undo a repost on TikTok. If you are one of those people, then we are here to help you.

How to undo a repost on TikTok

If you accidentally clicked the Repost button or changed your mind about the video you just reposted, don't panic. You will be relieved to know that the TikTok app will let you undo the repost and save you from any embarrassment.

To un repost a video on TikTok, just follow these steps:

  • First, navigate back to the video you reposted on the For you page.
  • Tap the share icon on the video you reposted.
  • Then, tap on the "Remove Repost" button. A confirmation pop-up will appear, and when confirming removal, the video will be un-reposted.

That's it! In just two taps, your repost will be removed as well as your worries.

It is worth mentioning that the video you reposted shows up in the home feed of your mutual connections (friends), but not in your TikTok profile. So it is a bit hard to see the videos you reposted on TikTok.

How to see what you repost on TikTok

The repost feature is similar to the Retweet feature on Twitter, but unlike Twitter, the videos you repost will not appear on your profile or feed. In other words, you won't be able to see what you repost on TikTok.

Your repost can only be seen by your TikTok friends or your mutual followers. So, if you wish to see what you repost on TikTok, you can look in one of your friends' TikTok feeds - if they allow you to.

That said, you can see all the videos you have watched in the past 7 days using the watch history feature, and you will be able to see the videos you repost on TikTok there.

Here's how to un-repost on TikTok

The only way to un repost on TikTok is to navigate back to the video and undo reposting it. Since the reposted videos won't appear in your TikTok profile, there is no easy way to un repost on TikTok after refreshing.

In this situation, what you can do is try to recollect the name of the account from which the video was reposted and go to their profile to un repost it. This can be a bit difficult if you are a person with a bad memory.

Alternatively, go to your TikTok watch history and see if you can find the video there. If you manage to track it down, tap the share button and then the remove repost button to un repost the video.

In case you have liked that video, you can find it in the liked videos tab in your profile. So, go to your profile, and tap the middle tap to see your liked videos. If you find it there, you know how to un repost it.

Another way to un repost on TikTok after refreshing is to ask one of your friends on TikTok to message you the video on TikTok when it appears on their feed. This way you can easily find the video and un repost it.

How to turn off repost on TikTok

If you are not a fan of the new repost feature or you just want to avoid accidentally tapping on the Repost button, you can choose to disable the feature from the settings.

To remove the repost button on TikTok, just follow these steps:

  • On the TikTok app, tap on Profile.
  • Click on the three stacked lines icon in the top right corner.
  • Next, select Settings and privacy > Privacy.
  • Scroll down to find Repost under the Safety section.
  • Finally, toggle off Video reposts.

Good riddance, we hear you say. You can turn it on anytime you want by following the same steps, but instead of toggling off in the final step, just toggle it on. Well, you know...
