How To Change Location Or Region On TikTok
TikTok is used widely in most urban areas across the globe. This means that there is a lot of unique and interesting content being posted by TikTok users from different locations and regions in the world. Viewing content on TikTok from different places in the world allows you to discover new and fascinating information and culture.
Sometimes, while using TikTok, you may be fascinated by posts from a specific region that you are not close to. To get more posts from that specific location or region, you can change your location on the app to appear as if you are in that specific region. In another related article, we discussed how you would download TikTok videos.
Unfortunately, TikTok does not allow you to directly change your location or region like other social media apps. However, there are some workarounds that you can use to appear that you are from a different region. This piece highlights the different ways that you can use to change your region or location on TikTok.
Change Your Language
TikTok allows you to add multiple languages to the app. If you add another language apart from your native one, you will start receiving posts in that newly added language and from people from that region. To change your language on TikTok:
- Launch TikTok and tap on “Me” on the bottom left corner of the screen
- On the page that appears, tap the three dots that appear on the top right side
- On the options that appear, tap on Account and select Content Preferences
- Add the new language that you are interested in
Start Following People from a Specific Region
Depending on the people you follow and the types of videos you watch, TikTok will recommend and display similar content. If you follow TikTok users from a specific region or begin watching more videos from a specific region, TikTok will show you more videos from that region.
Using a VPN App
Another interesting way to change your location or region on TikTok is using a VPN app. A VPN app will route your internet connection through a server in the specific region that you want. There are several VPN apps that can be used to trick TikTok into believing that you are using the app from that new region. After a while, you will start receiving video recommendations from that new region. Some of the best VPN apps for your Android device include VPN Express and VPN Master.
