It is the social responsibility of social media companies to ensure that younger audiences remain safe from spamming, illicit content and more. The same applies to TikTok, which has become immensely popular these days. You have to be at least 13-years old to sign up on the platform and you cannot create an account if you are younger. TikTok deletes accounts if you don’t meet the age requirement. In fact, it has become quite notorious for deleting accounts that appear to have fake birthdays.
Therefore, if you haven’t entered your correct birthday, it might be time to do so, or your TikTok account will be deleted. But, how to change your age on TikTok? Bear in mind that you will need to get in touch with their support team to do so and cannot make the changes on your own. You need to open your TikTok profile and tap the three-dot icon that you will see on the right corner. Then you open the Support section. You will find an option of ‘Report a Problem’. Tap it and then choose ‘Account and Profile’.
Select the ‘Editing Profile’ option first and then click on ‘Other’. You will see a ‘Need More Help’ option and this is where you enter your problem. Let the TikTok team know that your age is incorrect. Give as many details as you can and then wait for a response. It should also be noted that you will be asked to provide proof of your age and only then will the team update it. This usually means that you have to upload a government-issued passport or ID card. Currently, these are the only forms of ID that the company is willing to accept and as long as you provide one, the team will make the update and your account will remain safe.
