TikTok is currently one of the world’s most popular apps. It is filled with videos of people dancing, lip-syncing, performing stunts, and acting out comic skits. It has more than 500 million active users, and TikTok is taking the App Store by storm and giving stiff competition to other apps. To understand the app better, here are a few simple steps of how to use TikTok with ease.

Download the app and sign up

You can download the app by going to the App Store or Google Play and typing TikTok and downloading it. When you open the app, TikTok makes it easy to sign up. You could do an instant sign up with Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter or a standard username and password if you do not want it to connect your existing accounts.

Set up your profile

Once you log in, you will be directed to the feed of videos, but to set your profile you will have to click on the person’s outline that you will see on the lower right. Enter your profile, tap the edit profile button, then select a profile photo or video. You must also add your username and information.
