    • It may be an app glitch, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app again. If not then make a video and post it to public. Later go on that very same video and click on the three dots from right side corner, there will be an option named as “Private” click on that and your video will get saved in private.

  1. Hi,

    tik tok ( consume a lot of storage space and now hthe internal storage of my daughters phone says there is no space left. 🙁
    So we changed storage from internal to SD and the app said that all files are moved to the card. But there was no change in storage space, also not after a reboot.
    Now we decided to delete the data, but she will save all videos and drafts before we go on.
    So is there a way to download all files at once?
    We also searched the for the local saved files but found no video in the tik tok folders. All videos on YT are made with older versions of but none of them shows where the new tik tok will save the files. May be you know the savepath?

    Sorry for my poor english, we are from germany. And thanks for help.

    • As a tik tok user myself I know the problem of internal storage. I have been through this issue and my solution was to transfer all my videos into my laptop and then clear everything from my smartphone. If not then upload her videos on Google Drive they provide up to 15 GB free data per email id.
      But there is no way to download every video at once. She has to download them individually.
      Once downloaded, the videos will get in her phone’s gallery under “Videos”.

  2. Hi, can you help me how can i write a caption in my private video.

    It’s my private video and there is not a caption now i want make it public and write a caption in it but i don’t know how pleass help ????!

    • If you have saved your video private without adding a caption then you can’t write a caption later on. So, what you can do is save that video to the gallery and then upload it from your local videos, so with this, you can write a caption and can also add effects or filters.

    • Yes, it won’t be visible to anyone except you, until and unless you switch it to public. But if you still feel even the slightest doubt then save that video to your gallery and delete it from your private folder.
