What happens when someone is muted on TikTok?

Today the TikTok application has more than 500 million users, since it has become one of the most popular social networks , but due to this, people who damage your experience within the app with all their actions can also appear. If you have problems with one or another hater commenting negatively on your videos, you can always silence them to prevent them from continuing to bother you.

When you silence a user, they will be silenced or blocked, this blocking action is one of the most useful in TikTok, since it prevents negative users from interacting with your account, it will restrict the following things in your account:

No access to publications

When you block someone on TikTok, this will automatically add them to the block list, the person will not be able to view or comment on your content , in fact, they will not even be able to enter your profile, nor will you appear again in their search engine.

This user will not be able to see or interact with any of your publications, nor content in your account, even if it is configured as public, they will not have a way to continue making negative comments.

No notifications

This user will not receive the notifications that come from your content, nor from their comments within these, in addition, they will not be able to send you any message in private ; If you block someone, you will receive a notification that you have blocked them successfully, but they will not receive any notice of this action you took.

How are TikTok videos muted or ‘hidden’ from someone else?

When creating a TikTok video you can easily configure the privacy of these, this app has a few options to protect your content with security measures, one of these is to decide who will or will not see the videos you upload.

This action is very simple and you can do it as many times as you want; More than once you have noticed the ease of finding new content on the platform, and for this reason you are concerned about who could see your videos, this is what the privacy settings are for, to decide which people will be able to see your content or if you want to limit your videos can only be seen by your friends.

TikTok also allows you to have your entire account as private if a couple of videos is not enough, but if your problem is that you want to have it public and you have a couple of haters bothering you , you can simply hide your videos , either blocking them or making them only your followers can see them.

To do this, you just have to enter your profile, look for the video and enter its options, there you can choose between three public options, friends and private. To achieve this you can do it in the following ways:

What to do to mute a TikTok user on a Live?

Always when doing Live someone will appear to make annoying comments, this is something very common today, due to the number of haters that are in this social network, if you want to get rid of these, you will only have to silence them in the same way as I would silence a user so that they do not see your publications, you just have to click on me and look for the settings to block this user, and thus not receive more negative comments.

How long can a muted person last on TikTok?

In case you have blocked it, it will last until you remove it from the blocked list, since it is a security measure that you can configure yourself, now if the person was silenced by the same app, which TikTok does if violate community rules, the community will last for the duration of the penalty.

Can a TikTok person know that they have been silenced?

When blocking or silencing a person, they will not be immediately aware, since they will not receive a notification that informs them of this , but this can do certain tricks to discover if they are blocked. This user will go to your blocked list, and will not be able to search any of your content.

Something that you should remember is that, if you ever want to unlock it again, when you do so you will have to add it as your friend.
