Whether you’re managing different social media accounts or simply trying to start from scratch with a new one, the good news is: TikTok allows for multiple accounts from one device.

But, how many accounts can you have on TikTok, and is it a good idea to have one more than?

  1. Select ‘Add account’.
  1. Select how you want to sign up for TikTok and enter the necessary information. TikTok will ask you to add a username and a password and you might need to enter a confirmation code, depending on the signup method you opt for.

Note: You’ll need to download the latest version of TikTok to create or add new and existing accounts.

You can add another account by following the same steps. 

Keep in mind that once you add a third account, you won’t be able to create or add any more accounts on that device.

How To Switch Accounts on TikTok?

Things To Keep In Mind

Having multiple TikTok accounts can be a great way to expand your brand, boost your business’ growth on TikTok, or start something different from scratch.  

However, there are some things you, as a creator, should be wary of before you add a second TikTok account to your device.

One of the most important things that can immensely affect your TikTok presence is your account’s authority ranking. This essentially is TikTok’s way of answering the question: ‘How much of an influencer are you on the app?’

Having multiple accounts on a single device can flag you as a business and like many platforms, TikTok will likely de-prioritise your account to prompt you to pay for ads to grow. This means that you’ll get less exposure, which translates to fewer views, less engagement, and ultimately, less growth.

Pro tip: If any of your accounts are getting around 100 views per video, then it’s likely that your authority ranking is low and you should consider starting again. 

Bottom Line 

Any TikTok user, whether they’re a creator or a business, or use the app for entertainment purposes only, can create and add up to three accounts per device. TikTok allows users to create a second and third account with a different email or a phone number or they can sign up on the app via one of their social media accounts.
