Are you looking to create multiple TikTok accounts that you can switch back and forth between? We’ll explain everything you need to know about how to add a second account on TikTok, along with other things you might find helpful along the way.

 

How to Add a Second Account on TikTok

TikTok allows users to make and create up to 3 TikTok accounts on the same device. If you’re someone who wants to have over 3 accounts, then the only way to do so is if you have other devices you can create them on. 

You’ll want to note that if you have more than one account you should avoid engaging in activities that can be classified as spam, such as liking your own content over and over again. TikTok will recognize this and potentially ban or suspend your account(s). 

The process of adding an account is quite simple. To get started, follow these steps:

  • Open the TikTok app.
  • Click on your profile in the bottom right-hand corner. 
  • At the top of the screen, click on your name.
  • From the drop-down menu, click on “Add account.”
  • Choose which method you want to use for how you want to sign up.
  • Continue through with the process of adding your account.

Why should I create multiple TikTok accounts?

Everyone’s reason for having multiple TikTok accounts is different. But, if you’re looking for inspiration as to why you should make another account, you can keep a few of these things in mind:

  • It’s a way to keep your personal content separate from your business content. If you’re someone who makes another account to promote your business, then chances are you probably don’t want your personal content mixing in with it. 
  • If you have more than one niche that you’re interested in, creating different accounts for them might be a better idea than just grouping them all into one. Following other users who are also interested in that niche is also a good idea, rather than just following whoever. 

 

Conclusion

Whether you want to make other TikTok accounts or not is totally up to you. If you’re someone who has other interests that you might not want to share on your personal account, then look into creating another one. 

Another thing that might influence you to create another account is the chances of your account getting banned is never 0. Having a backup account that either relates to your niche or your personal life is never a bad idea.
