FAQ

Why can't I put a link in my TikTok bio?

If you can't add a link to your bio, try changing your account type from Personal to Pro. Keep in mind that you won't be able to use some unlicensed songs for commercial purposes after changing your account type. Follow the steps below to do so:



1. Launch the TikTok app on your phone. This cannot be done in the browser version.

2. Tap your profile picture located in the lower right corner of your screen.

If you already have a Pro account but can't add a link to your bio, chances are your TikTok needs an update. Visit the AppStore or an iPhone or Google Play Store on an Android device and check if any updates are available. Optionally, this can be done from your device's Settings app.


How to return to personal account on TikTok?

Although the Pro account is free on TikTok, it has some disadvantages. For example, you cannot use certain songs that are not authorized for commercial purposes. If you regret changing your account type and want to switch back to a personal account, follow the instructions below:

1. Launch the TikTok app on your phone. You will not be able to do this from the browser version.

2. In the lower right corner of the screen, tap your profile picture.

5. Return to the main page. Your account type should now be changed and your bio link removed.

Attract a new audience

Now that you've added a link to your TikTok bio, you can expect an influx of traffic to its source. If you've done everything correctly but still don't see the option to add a link, your region's TikTok version update may be late. Developers are gradually adding this feature, so some may not be able to use it yet. It may seem unfair, but be patient and check your profile settings again in a few days. Hopefully the desired functionality will be there.
