Furthermore, if you have registered with a fake date of birth, you also risk losing your account. That means, if you accidentally entered the wrong date of birth when you registered, you need to know how to change your age on TikTok. Here is a quick guide, but take note, it is not easy.

Therefore, it is wise for you to wait until you are old enough and then enter your real date of birth.

If you created your account with the wrong date of birth, before you were 13, and you try to change it, you face deletion of your account.
