How to Send a Link to a TikTok Video on an iPhone

The TikTok app for iPhone, available as a free download from the App Store, lets you record short videos up to 60 seconds long and then share them on the platform (whether private or public). However, you can also share a video with someone outside the platform. To do this, you need to generate a link.

  3. Tap the "copy link" icon in the "share to" submenu. TikTok will automatically fetch the video link and display a "Copied" confirmation message at the top of your screen.
  4. Select the mode in which you want to send the video and paste the link. For example, to text the video, open the messaging app, then long press the text box to paste the link.
