Have you liked a ton of TikToks, and want to clear them out?
Deleting your liked videos can take some time, but it gives you the opportunity for a sort of fresh start – especially if like many people, you’ve been a little to generous while clicking that like button.
However, unliking each TikTok one-by-one can take a long time.
Fortunately, there’s a way to speed up the process. In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know about clearing your liked videos on TikTok.
Can You Unlike All Of Your TikTok Videos At Once?
Unfortunately, there is currently no built-in feature to unlike all of your TikTok videos, short of deleting your account and starting a new one.
Obviously, this is something we want to avoid.
However, there is a way to automate the process of unliking, so you don’t actually have to do it yourself. You can start the process, set your phone down for a bit, and do something else while all of your videos are unliked.
We’ll get to that in a moment.
If you only have a relatively small number of videos that you need to unlike however, then you should consider just accepting your fate and unliking them individually.
If you start at the top, you can unlike and flip to the next video in under 2 seconds per video. Just keep one thumb hovering over the heart icon, and use your other one to flip to the next TikTok.
Even if it took you an average of 3 seconds per video to unlike, this would still allow you to unlike 1,200 TikToks per hour.
The average TikTok user spends 52 minutes per day on the app, and even if you spam liked a bunch of accounts, you are still only limited to liking 500 videos per day.
For the average person, it really shouldn’t take that long to manually unlike your liked videos if you were focused.
Still, if you’ve liked an excessive number or you simply don’t want to bother doing it yourself, there is another solution.
How To Automatically Unlike TikToks Using A Macro
Although this is kind of a technical solution, it does work if you’re willing to set it up.
Macros are simply recorded commands, that are then repeated over and over again automatically.
For example, using a macro app on Android, you could record yourself tapping the like button on TikTok to unlike it, and then swiping to the next video.
The macro could then be played over and over again automatically until all of your videos have been unliked.
Some of the most popular macro apps on Android include:
Each one is handled a little bit differently, but should have instructions on how to actually use, record, and play back the recorded macros.
But what if you don’t have an Android phone? What if you are using an iPhone or iPad?
Fortunately, there’s another solution.
If you have a computer, you can download an Android emulator like Bluestacks or Nox. These essentially run a virtual Android tablet on your computer.
Once it’s downloaded and installed, install the TikTok app and log in. Note that your drafts won’t be there, but don’t worry! Drafts are tied to your device and will show back up on your phone.
Once you’re signed in, you could run a computer macro, or download one of the apps mentioned earlier to automate the unliking process on your PC.
Since your likes are tied to your account, they will also be removed from your liked TikToks on your phone as well.
Therefore, this is also another option if you don’t want to use the macro on your phone for whatever reason.
How To Hide Your Liked Videos From The Public
If for whatever reason you want to keep your liked videos, but simply want to hide other people from seeing them, then achieving this is simple.
In fact, TikTok has a setting for this built-in.
To make your TikTok likes private, follow these steps:
- Open the TikTok app.
- Click on the ‘Profile’ icon on the bottom-right hand side of your screen.
- Click on the three horizontal lines to bring up your settings.
- Tap on ‘Privacy’
- Go down to ‘Liked videos’ and tap on it
- Select ‘Only me’.
Your liked TikToks will now be private. You can verify this by using an alt account, or by looking at the icon that represents your liked videos. Once the setting is set to ‘Only me’, the heart icon will also have a circle with a line through it.
Although TikTok doesn’t have any built-in feature to unlike all of your videos at once, it can still be done relatively quickly.
Whether you decide to focus up and diligently unlike your videos manually, or you use a macro to automate the process, it shouldn’t take very long.
One more thing – don’t trust any tools, services or software that claim they can do this for you. More than likely, this is a scam used to hack your TikTok account and steal your personal information.

This is great, my account's been hacked for a while, and some weirdo has been using my account for almost a month while i didn't use tiktok.
He liked thousands of things…..
Now all I'm seeing is suggested videos in a language I don't understand.
Hope this'll solved it quickly, looks like it's gonna take a while…
Wow, I’m sorry to hear that! It seems like a very strange thing to do after taking over an account…
One thing that may help get your For You page back to normal is marking ‘not interested’ on all the videos that come up in the foreign language (in addition to unliking everything that was liked.)
Try following new people too that publish content you’re interested in, and manually go to their page to view their videos.
It seems TikTok weighs your recent interests more heavily, so hopefully all the foreign videos get pushed out in time.
