If you are looking for ways to bypass the TikTok screen time limit, we have got you covered!

TikTok's recent introduction of a screen time limit for users under 18 is a positive step towards promoting healthy social media habits among young users. However, for avid TikTok enthusiasts in this age group, the new restriction can be limiting and frustrating.

In this article, we'll teach you how to bypass TikTok's screen time limit, so you can spend more time enjoying the latest TikTok trends and funny TikTok duets.

How to bypass TikTok screen time limit

TikTok's new screen time limit feature functions by automatically notifying users under 18 with a message once they've reached one hour of daily scrolling, in an effort to promote healthier social media habits.

However, TikTok leaves easy workarounds for those who are determined to circumvent the feature. One simple way to bypass the TikTok screen time limit is to input the screen time passcode that you (or your parents or guardians) have set.

In case you don't remember your passcode, you can easily reset it. To reset your passcode, tap Forgot passcode? on the passcode prompt and verify your account via your phone number or email address. After successful verification, you'll be able to set up a new passcode.

How to turn off TikTok screen time limit

Opting to turn off the screen time limit altogether from the app's settings is another viable method to bypass the TikTok screen time limit. This will allow you to continue watching TikTok videos without many interruptions.

To turn off TikTok screen time limit:

  • Open TikTok and tap your profile icon.
  • Tap the 3-line icon in the top right corner and select Settings and Privacy.
  • Under the Content & Activity header, tap on Digital Wellbeing.
  • From the Digital Wellbeing menu, tap Screen Time Management.
  • Finally, tap Turn off and enter the passcode to disable TikTok screen time limit.

Turning off TikTok screen time limit doesn't necessarily mean unlimited usage without interruptions. TikTok will still prompt you (if you're under 18) to set a limit if you spend over 100 minutes on the app, but you can simply ignore the message and continue enjoying the content.

Now that you have learned how to bypass the TikTok screen time limit, have a look at other TikTok guides such as how to un repost on TikTok and how to auto scroll on TikTok.
