TikTok is a haven for people who love to scroll through videos that keep them hooked for hours on end. However, you can’t enjoy every content, as some creators want to keep their accounts private. You will check out a TikTok creator’s profile if someone mentioned them as having stuff that was too amazing to miss. But it appears that their profile is private. What a pity!
You might also send them a friend request. On TikTok, we frequently send out friend requests without even remembering the names of the creators, especially when their content is too good.
The question is, how do you find out to whom you sent a friend request on Tiktok? Dive right into the blog to find your answers.
How to Find Out Whom i Sent a Friend Request on Tiktok?
We are probably talking about a private account if you are trying to find out to whom you sent a friend request on TikTok. When a person has a public account, anybody can follow them by default without requiring their approval. However, that’s not the case with a private account.
Here’s how you find who you sent a friend request on TikTok:
Step 1: Launch the TikTok app on your smartphone and ensure you’re signed in.
Step 2: The profile icon is in the screen’s lower right corner. Please tap on it.
Step 3: After completing the previous step, your TikTok profile page will be displayed. To access your account settings, click the three dots in the top right corner of the screen.
Step 4: Is the Privacy and Safety option visible to you in the Account Settings menu? Click on it to proceed.
Step 5: Do you see the Who can view my profile under Privacy and Safety? Go down to the friend requests option.
Step 6: Tap the friend requests option to view a list of all your requests on TikTok.
Note: From this list, you can view the people you have sent a friend request to, and if desired, you can cancel them too.
Advice: If manually going through all of your friend requests becomes tiresome, use the search box to find users instead.
We offer two recommended methods to view the people you have sent a friend request to on TikTok. Please have a look at it below.
Check your TikTok followers
Remember, you can see a list of all the people who have followed your account by visiting the Followers tab on your TikTok profile. Also, you may find additional information about the private accounts you have asked to follow.
Go to your followers list and see if the person’s name has friends next to it. Once the owner approves your friend request for the private account, you will be listed as a friend. However, if it says Requested, they haven’t replied to your request yet, so you’ll probably have to wait a little longer.
