Updated

Here’s everything you need to know about how to add links to your TikTok bio, and some reasons why you might not see the option.

How to Add Links to Your TikTok Bio

TikTok is one of the many social media platforms businesses and brands use to grow their social presence. If you want to share more links with your TikTok followers, the best thing to do is add a link in your bio. This guide will show you how to add links to your TikTok bio in a few easy steps.

Adding links to a TikTok bio is done through the Edit profile section on TikTok, and it requires a business account with at least 1,000 followers.

TikTok users can add links to their bios if they have a business account with at least 1,000 followers. TikTok implemented the new limit in late January 2022. Before that, anyone with a TikTok Business Account could freely add links to their bio.

Step 1: Switch to a TikTok Business Account

  1. Launch TikTok and go to your Profile tab.
  2. Tap on the three lines at the top right corner.
  3. Go to Settings and privacy.
  4. Tap on Manage account.
  5. Tap on Switch to Business Account.

The primary difference between TikTok Personal and TikTok Business accounts is the ability to use different sounds in your videos. Many sounds are available for personal accounts but not business accounts because they do not have commercial licensing.

How to Switch Back to a Personal TikTok Account

If you decide a TikTok Business Account is not for you, you can always switch back to a personal TikTok account. Remember, you’ll lose access to your business analytic data! 

Here’s how to switch back to a personal TikTok account:

  1. Launch TikTok and go to the Profile tab.
  2. Tap on the three lines at the top right corner.
  3. Go to Settings and privacy.
  4. Tap on Manage account.
  5. Tap on Switch to Personal account and then tap Switch Back.

  3. Tap on Add your website.

By default, you can link a YouTube channel and Instagram account with your TikTok bio. You can also add a link to any website if the option is available to you. However, the website option is only available for TikTok Business Accounts with at least 1,000 followers.

Many TikTok users tend to put Linktree and Discord links in their profile, so that’s something you may want to consider if you have a large following.
