TikTok has lots of options allowing you to interact with its content. These include liking, saving, commenting and “reposting”.
Reposting is relatively a new feature that makes many of its users feel puzzled. How to repost an update on TikTok and what happens when you do?
To repost an update on TikTok, click an arrow icon (the 4th icon from the top). This will enable your followers to see that update even if they are not following its creator.
- Open an update you want to share
- Tap the arrow icon when viewing that update (should be the fourth option from the top to the right)
- Tap “Repost” underneath “Send to”
If you don’t see that icon, the creator disabled that option when publishing the update.
You can repost one update only once.
When you repost a TikTok update, it will not appear among your update. In fact, other people won’t even be able to see it anywhere on your profile. You will be able to see it using a mobile app when clicking “Repost” tab which is private, and only accessible by you:
Reposting makes it possible for your followers to see that update in the “Following” section of TikTok:
To undo your repost:
- Go to your main profile page using a mobile app (tap a person icon in the bottom right corner)
- Tap the repost icon on top of your feed
- Tap an update you want to “unrepost”
- Tap “You reposted”
- Tap and hold “Reposted this video”
- You should see “Remove repost” option at the bottom of your screen

Overall, I am not seeing that option very often used on TikTok. People tend to like comment and save. But it is still good to know how it works. Watch our video instructions: How to Repost on Tiktok and Undo Your Repost
