How to block a TikTok sound
There are two saperate methods you can try to block a sound.
Here are the first steps for the first method.
1. Open up the TikTok app
First of all, you need to open the TikTok app and log-in or switch to the account you want the sound blocked on.
2. Find the TikTok sound you want to block
Secondly, you need to find the TikTok sound you want to block.
There are a few ways you can find the sound or video:
- Search for the video on TikTok by using keywords which are in the video description.
- Search for the sound on TikTok, and then filter the search results for “Sounds”.
- Scroll through your For You Page (FYP) until you hear the sound again.
- Go to a TikTok user’s profile who you know used the sound previously.
- Search for a hashtag that is commonly used with the sound and then scroll through the videos which were tagged with that hashtag.
If you want to search for a video, sound or a user on TikTok, you need to tap on “Friends” with two people as the icon and there is a search bar at the top of the Friends page.
Once you have found the sound or video, you need to tap on it at the bottom of the video it was used in.
Then, you will be on the Sound page, where you can see all of the TikTok videos which have used the sound.
3. Report the sound
Next, you need to go to the top right of the sound page where you will see the Share button, which looks like an arrow pointing to the right.
Tap on this button.
Now, a menu will slide up from the bottom of your screen. You will see an option for “Report sound” with the icon as a flag.
You need to tap on the Report button, this will bring up the “Report” menu. The last option on the menu will be “Other”. Tap on “Other”.
4. Block the TikTok sound
Now, you need to select a reason. You should tap on “I’m not interested in this content””
Finally, you need to submit your report.
This will make a report notifying you disliked the video and sound.
