TikTok account: registration, login, customization

The TikTok application is very popular with teenagers and young adults... but not only! If the quality of the content is not always there, there are some nuggets. Curious ? So get started by creating your account!



Available on Android and iOS, TikTok is a free mobile application for creating videos, with music and playback. It has been a great success in France since 2019, especially with the youngest – the famous generation Z.

But for several months, older users as well as personalities of all stripes (influencers, artists, comedians and even politicians) have joined this network and actively participate in the uninterrupted flow of video creations. Thus, it is estimated at more than 11 million its number of monthly users in France alone, and 800 million in all in the world, placing it ahead of WhatsApp .


TikTok owes its success to its extremely effective and easy-to-use functions for creating videos: filters, effects, adding music… Their duration is limited to 15 or 60 seconds, so the message must be short. And the result could be compared to a YouTube on steroids: it's fast, noisy, with abuse of special effects and zooms. If the majority only seeks to entertain, some videos are educational, decipher the news or defend causes with a strong commitment against racism or sexism, for example.

Who says social network, says sharing. In fact, other users can comment, relay or "like" the videos, and even reuse them in their own productions. The videos and choreographies thus created are broadcast on the platform and can easily be sent to other social networks such as  Instagram  or Twitter.

Like Instagram, TikTok uses hashtags to highlight certain videos, and offers challenges based on specific music. These regularly renewed creative challenges offer both a way to arouse the interest of users and a good way for them to showcase themselves.

But like any social network, TikTok has its excesses. Widely used by the youngest (13-18 years old), the Chinese application has been talked about because of the risks of cyberbullying and pedophilia, scams and even accusations of espionage, to the point of being temporarily banned in the United States. Since these accusations, TikTok has changed the privacy of accounts created by minors. However, it is strongly recommended to make young people aware of the risks, to pay attention to the content posted... and to check their privacy settings regularly.
