TikTok is one of the world’s leading social media apps, with millions of users sharing videos daily. There’s no denying that the app can sometimes feel cluttered, with so many icons and text messages visible on the screen while viewing videos. TikTok’s solution to this is something called Clear Mode. This guide will show you how to get Clear Mode in TikTok.

TikTok began testing Clear Mode in late May and early June and is in limited testing mode, meaning it’s only available for some users. Users with access to the Clear Mode feature can tap and hold the screen while viewing a video and select Clear Mode from the list of options. Typically, this option is located under the Add to Favorites button on the menu. The option enables a “distraction-free viewing experience.”
