Here’s how you can delete a story on TikTok
1. Open the TikTok app
Launch the TikTok app on your mobile device. Make sure you are logged in to your TikTok account.
2. Access your profile
Tap on the “Profile” icon located at the bottom right corner of the screen. This will take you to your TikTok profile page.
3. View your active story
On your profile page, you’ll see a row of circular icons at the top. Look for the circle with a “+” sign in it. This represents your active story. Tap on this circle to view your current story.
4. Locate the story you want to delete
Swipe left or right to navigate through your stories until you find the one you wish to delete. TikTok stories are displayed in a chronological order, with the most recent ones appearing first.
5. Open story settings
Once you’ve found the story you want to delete, tap on the three dots icon (usually located at the bottom right corner of the screen) to access the story settings.
6. Delete the story
In the story settings menu, you should see an option to delete the story. The wording may vary slightly depending on the TikTok app version, but it is typically labeled as “Delete” or “Remove.” Tap on this option to delete your story.
7. Confirm deletion
TikTok will prompt you to confirm whether you want to delete the story. Review the confirmation message carefully, as deleted stories cannot be recovered. If you’re sure you want to proceed, tap on “Delete” or “Confirm” to finalize the deletion.
8. Verify the story is removed
After confirming the deletion, TikTok will remove the selected story from your profile and it will no longer be visible to other users. To double-check, you can navigate back to your profile and verify that the story has been successfully deleted.
Congratulations! You have successfully deleted a story on TikTok. Remember that stories on TikTok are temporary and automatically disappear after 24 hours, but if you want to remove a story before that time limit, follow the steps outlined above.
Deleting a story on TikTok will remove it only from your profile. If other users have already viewed or shared your story, it may still be visible to them, depending on when they accessed it. However, the story will no longer be accessible from your profile.
TikTok’s user-friendly interface makes it easy to delete stories, giving you control over your content. Now you can manage your TikTok stories with confidence, ensuring that only the content you want to share is available to your followers.
