Before getting to the heart of this tutorial and explain yourself in detail how to chat on TikTok, let me give you some preliminary information in this regard.
First of all, you must know that on the famous Chinese social network you can send private messages and start a real-time conversation with friends only, that is, all those users you follow and who in turn have decided to follow you. Furthermore, you can send messages to these people as long as we have not changed the privacy settings of your profile and disabled the possibility of being contacted privately.
Finally, I would like to point out that regardless of the privacy options relating to the messages you have selected from your account settings, you can still receive private messages from the users to whom you have sent them.
This means that if you have chosen not to be contacted via chat, when you contact a person privately, you will be able to receive an answer without changing your privacy settings. Having clarified this, let's see how to proceed.
