Can you hide TikTok videos from certain followers?
It is possible to hide your TikTok videos from certain followers. TikTok has specific features to do this which are easy to use. We understand you want to protect your videos as well, which is why it’s important you know how.
How to hide TikTok videos from specific followers
Now, let’s get into some different ways you can hide your videos from certain followers.
All of the different methods work really well.
It’s up to you to decide which you want to use.
Customize the privacy settings of the video
The first way you can protect some of your TikTok videos is by changing the privacy settings of the video.
You can set the privacy setting when you first post the video, and at a later date as well.
We will explain how to do both.
Set the privacy setting when publishing a video
You need to record the video or find it in your drafts and get ready to post it.
Once you are on the “Post” page just before you publish the and post video, you need to look for the setting called “Who can watch this video”.
Usually, by default, it will be set to “Everyone”. This means that anyone can see the video, unless you have a private account, then only your followers can.
So, tap on the option and a menu will slide up.
There are a few different options, but the one we use is “Friends”.
This means that only users that you follow back can see the video.
You need to make sure you are following everyone who you want to see the video, and then you can post it.
It’s important that you don’t follow followers who you don’t want watching the video.
Change the privacy settings of an existing video
Alternatively, you can change the privacy settings of a video that you have already posted.
Find the video on your profile that you want to stop certain followers from seeing and tap on it.
Then, tap on the three dots on the right-hand side of the video.
This will open a menu called “Send to”.
You need to look for the carousel of options at the bottom of the menu.
Next, you need to scroll along it until you see the option called “Privacy settings” and tap on it.
This will open another menu called “Privacy settings”, and you need to tap on “Who can watch this video”.
Now, you can set who can watch the video. The option we use is “Friends”.
“Friends” means that only users that you follow back will be able to watch the video.
So, it’s important that you don’t follow the follower who you don’t want to watch the video.
If you do, make sure you unfollow them. Otherwise, they will be able to see the video.
Also, if you have seen other TikTok users using the term “NFS”, this is what it means.
Block specific followers
Another option to stop specific followers from seeing your videos is to just block them.
In order to block a follower, you need to go to their profile.
You can get to their profile by finding their account in your “Followers” list, or you can search for their account as well.
Once you are on their profile, you need to tap on the three dots in the top right. The three dots are also to the right of the bell icon.
Then, a menu called “Send to” will open.
You need to navigate to the bottom row of the menu and tap on “Block”.
Now, you have blocked the user. You will not be able to see each other’s content.
But, if they try and visit your profile, they may notice that you have blocked them.
Perhaps, you could temporarily block them, and then after some time of posting the video, you could unblock them.
Remove them from following you
A further trick to hide your videos from certain followers is to remove them from following.
In order to remove a follower, you need to go to their profile.
You can do this by finding their account in your “Followers” list, or you can search for their username as well.
Then, you need to tap on the three dots in the top right of their profile.
A menu called “Send to” will open up.
Next, you need to navigate to the bottom row on the menu and tap on “Remove this follower”.
You will need to confirm your decision to remove them as a follower by tapping on “Remove” again.
Also, it’s important to note that the person you just removed could still see the video on their For You Page.
So, it could be worth blocking them as well to make sure they don’t see it.
We hope you found this useful and that you have yielded the results you wanted!
