TikTok Activity Status: How To Appear Offline On TikTok
April 10th, 2024 by Terri Pinyerd

To appear offline on TikTok, even when you're online, you can turn off your activity status. This feature, when deactivated, makes your online presence invisible to others.


To appear offline on TikTok you'll need to access your profile settings from the TikTok app. These instructions won't work from the desktop site.


Open TikTok on your mobile device.


On the bottom right corner tap Profile.


Tap the three lines in the top right corner.

Tap Settings and Privacy.

Frequently Asked Questions


How can someone see when I'm active?

The only way someone will see your activity status is if you both have the feature enabled and are mutual followers.


Who can use the active status on TikTok?

Users who are 18 years of age or older can use the activity status to appear visible to their friends on the platform. Minors are not given this feature to protect their privacy.


I'm over 18 - why don't I see the active status feature?

TikTok has rolled out this feature gradually, so not all users in all regions may have access to it. If you're follow the steps outlined above and aren't seeing the toggle in your Privacy settings, chances are the feature just isn't available in your region.

What's the point of the active status on TikTok?

The activity status is a way to grant users more control over their profiles, and is a simple way of maintaining privacy while engaging with other users on the platform. However it's important to keep in mind that there are other ways of determining whether or not a user is online, for example, if they comment on a post or have other visible interactions.
