Although it's a global app, TikTok filters what you see and who sees you based on your region. This is fine if your area has a lot of users, but if there aren't many talented creators in your feed, you might want to change your location.

Here are some methods you can use to change your region in TikTok.



Use a VPN to change your TikTok region

One of the most common options for changing your location in TikTok is to use a VPN. A virtual private network allows you to quickly change the location of your device. Express VPN is a popular choice, but other options are also available.

Notes: Using a VPN may not work as reports indicate that TikTok is using your SIM card's GSM information, not your device's spoofed IP address or region.

Using a VPN to change your location can be hit or miss, but it's a great technique that works most of the time. You can sign up for Express VPN or find another solution. You will also need to download the app. If you want to try your hand at using a VPN on TikTok, follow the steps below.

Use ExpressVPN on Android to change your TikTok region

  1. Make sure you have subscribed to Express VPN using a browser.
  2. Download the ExpressVPN app from Google Play.
  3. Launch the Express VPN app, then sign in to the account you created in step 1.
  4. Press “Selected location. »
  5. Press the " Country " ou " City " of your choice.
  6. Then press the "power icon" at the top to activate your VPN.
  7. Open "TIC Tac" and view content from your new location.

Use ExpressVPN on iPhone to Change Your TikTok Region

  1. Sign up for an express VPN account using a browser, if not already established.
  2. Download the iPhone Express VPN app.
  3. Open the app and log into your ExpressVPN account.
  4. Tap " To permit " when ExpressVPN requests permission to add VPN configurations.
  5. Press “Smart location”.
  6. Select the desired location from the list.

Change language to change your TikTok region

As stated above, TikTok likely won't recommend any content in a language that isn't native to your region. Luckily, you can easily change your language within the app.

  1. Launch "TIC Tac" and select " Me " in the lower right corner.
  2. Press the "vertical ellipsis" (three vertical dots) in the upper right corner.
  3. Select "Content Preferences" in the “Account” section.
  4. Add the native language of the region you are looking for.

Changing your TikTok language may not instantly fix your region issue, so you may need to use the following methods to get TikTok to show you the content you want to see.


Follow different creators to change your Instagram region

Based on what other users have reported, TikTok recommends content based on who you follow and what types of videos you interact with the most. It's time to head to the app and start following people in another region.

The "Search" option is not available on the TikTok website, but the app version has it. Here's how to find and follow TikTok creators in another region.

  1. Click on the " magnifying glass " "Discover" at the bottom left of the application.
  2. Type the most popular users in the region you want to display in the search bar.
  3. Press red " To follow " on their profile to follow the user.
  4. Then press the "Followers" link in their profile to see who and how many are following the specified user.
  5. In the Followers list, find a high number, then scroll down and follow the accounts as well.

Here is a list of popular TikTok creators to follow if you don't know who is the most popular and what region they reside in.


Swap your Sim Card to change your TikTok region

Usually, when someone wants to appear from another country, a VPN is the answer. As mentioned earlier, a VPN may not work with TikTok. However, some user reviews give the impression that VPNs work. Be the judge, but be sure to confirm that you're not getting results that make you think it worked. If this works for you, please comment below with your current region and which one worked.

VPN confusion with TikTok aside, the app uses your SIM card's region code to decide what you see. Try to buy a SIM card from another region and use it on your phone. The SIM option is a hassle unless you have a dual SIM phone, but it's doable if you want to go that route.

In conclusion, TikTok is a great platform to create and share content with people around the world. However, if you want to start seeing more content from specific regions, you'll need to take a few extra steps to manipulate your feed.
