How To Manage TikTok In-App And Push Notifications
Everyone loves social media, especially TikTok, for the creative content it brings in every day.
However, the app's notifications might get on your nerves at times, especially when many of them are redundant.
With such a load of notifications, sometimes people would prefer to turn off the push notifications you prefer to avoid by following a few simple steps.
Types of Notifications on TikTok
There are 4 types of notifications on the app, aiming to alert you to different things.
Message notifications are as the name suggests.
If any of your contacts sends you a message, TikTok will instantly notify you.
Just like Instagram, if any of the profiles you follow/contacts go live, you'll get a notification inviting you to join them.
There are various kinds of updates you see from TikTok.
Video Updates of people you follow
This is an alert when one of your contacts or a profile you follow uploads a new video.
The Suggestions' notification might be the trigger why one would like to turn off TikTok notifications in the first place since they pop up quite often.
These alerts direct your attention to try out this new challenge or see a new video.
Interactions - these notifications are turned on by default
TikTok notifies you of all the interactions happening with your profile. They are as follows:
You will see a notification every time you get TikTok likes on your.
You will be notified when someone mentions your username in a comment or caption.
These notifications tell you if someone new started following you.
Whenever someone leaves a comment on your post or video, you'll get a notification.
If you feel annoyed by any of these, you can turn them off in a few simple steps.
