Preliminary information

Before getting into the subject, I would say that it is my duty to provide you with some preliminary information su how to remove phone number from TikTok.

As I already told you in the introduction of the article, when you register for TikTok with your phone number, you have two possibilities to change it: change the number replacing it with another address (for example a secondary number in your possession, a number of a member of your family or, if desired, a temporary number) or delete your account and register using a method other than by telephone (for example via e-mail).



In the latter case, however, know that by deleting the account from TikTok you will no longer be able to access the platform with the same, you will no longer have access to the videos you publish and the deletion will be effective after 30 days from the request (in this period, by logging in again to the account, it will be possible to reactivate it).

Maybe it wasn't exactly what you were planning to do, but at the moment these are the only paths you can take. If everything is clear to you so far, I would say to see in detail how to proceed.
