As one of the biggest social media apps in the world today, you might be wondering how to get your TikTok profile link. If you have accounts on other social media platforms and want to promote your TikTok profile page, getting your URL is the best way to do that.

Sure, you can post your username on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or any other social media network you want to share your TikTok URL to.

But it will be easier for you and your followers to just click on a link. And getting a clickable link to your TikRok profile is very easy to do.

What is a TikTok URL?

Simply put, a TikTok URL is a link to your TikTok profile page. When clicked, the person will be redirected to either the app or the webpage of your account.

TikTok URLs are usually formatted this way:

Desktop: https://www.tiktok.com/@yourusername

Mobile: tiktok.com/@yourusername

Either way, those links will take you to your own TikTok profile.

On mobile, there are two ways to get the link to your TikTok profile.

For the first method, follow these steps:

  1. Step 1

    Open the TikTok app on your mobile phone. When you open TikTok, head to the “Profile” button located at the far right side at the bottom of your screen. If you haven’t signed up yet, there will be a button on the page instead that asks you to sign up.

  2. Step 2

    TikTok Profile Three Lines Icon

    Once you’re on your profile page, you can see the three horizontal lines icon at the top right corner of the screen. Tap it.

  3. Step 3

    Share profile button

    Find the “Share profile” button and tap it.

  4. Step 4

    Copy link

    Tap “Copy link”. Upon pressing it, you will get a notification stating your link has been copied.

If you go with this route, you will probably see the link that’s something like this: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZSeFE5Tdf/

If you want instead to get a clickable link that isn’t made of random letters and numbers, here’s another method you can do:

  1. Step 1

    Open the TikTok app on your mobile phone. When you open TikTok, head to the “Profile” button located at the far right side at the bottom of your screen. If you haven’t signed up yet, there will be a button on the page instead that asks you to sign up.

  2. Step 2

    Edit profile button

    If you’re already on your TikTok profile page, you can see there’s an “Edit Profile” button under your profile picture. Press it.

  3. Step 3

    Copy TikTok link on mobile

    Under your username, you can see the link to your TikTok profile. Copy link by tapping the tiny button beside it that looks like two overlapping squares. And now you’re done!

Your TikTok profile link is now copied to your clipboard. You can paste it anywhere you like, just by long-pressing the text field you want to put it and then selecting “Paste.”

If you’re on a desktop and want to copy your TikTok profile link, simply head over to TikTok on your browser. Click your profile picture, and then a dropdown menu will appear. Click “View profile”. Simply copy the URL of your TikTok profile in the URL field of the page, and paste it anywhere you would like to.

Alternatively, you can just type in tiktok.com/@username. Don’t forget the @ before the username or else, when you click the link, you will be taken to an error page.

How to Change a TikTok URL

To change your TikTok URL, you have to change your username. Your username is connected to your TikTok URL, so it must be unique or else TikTok won’t allow it.

If you want to change your TikTok username, follow these steps:

  1. Step 1

    Go to the TikTok mobile app.

  2. Step 2

    Edit profile button 2

    Tap “Edit Profile”.

  3. Step 3

    Username
    Change username

    Press “Username” and it will redirect you to another page where you can change it.

Note that your name and username are different. Your username is what people will use to find you on TikTok while your name will be what others see in their inbox, on the top of your profile page, and such.

Changing your username effectively changes your TikTok URL as well. Know that you can only change your username again after 30 days. Usernames can only contain letters, numbers, underscores, periods, but you can’t put the last one at the end of your username.

Where can I put my TikTok profile URL?

TikTok profile URL is pretty helpful for these reasons:

  • By putting your TikTok link on your other social media accounts or website, you can drive more traffic to your TikTok page, which is especially great for influencers.
  • You can share your TikTok link with anyone and they can click it easily without typing your username in the search bar.
  • Sharing your TikTok URL (especially if you have a lot of good content in there) is an excellent way to promote your brand or page.

Additional tips

Are you looking instead to copy a TikTok video link? You can easily do that by doing the following:

    Select any video you want to share. This could be your own videos or someone else’s.

  2. Step 2

    If it’s your video, tap the three dots icon on the right side of the screen. If it’s a video shared by another user, you will see a “share button” on the right side as well. Either way, press that button.

  3. Step 3

    Under “Share to”, tap “Copy link”. That post’s link will be copied and you can share it with anyone now.

Sharing your TikTok URL to other websites or social media networks can boost your traffic. If you have more audience on other platforms such as YouTube or Instagram, promote your TikTok page by sharing a link.
