15 Secret TikTok Features Unveiled  💥
TikTok, the global sensation of short videos, is always updating with new features. But some remain hidden or under-utilized. Let's unveil 15 secret features you might not be using on TikTok.
1. Voice Effects
Did you know that you can change the tone of your voice on TikTok? After recording a video, tap on ‘Voice Effects’ and choose from multiple fun effects. It's a fun way to add uniqueness to your content.
2. Save Videos Privately
Want to save a video but not share it immediately? TikTok User Guide suggests saving your videos as ‘Private’. This way, only you can see them unless you decide to post publicly.
3. Two-Step Verification
TikTok’s 2-Step Verification ensures better security for your account. To enable, go to your profile, tap on the three dots, choose 'Security', and activate the two-step verification.
4. Duet with Only Friends
Instead of dueting with anyone, set your videos to allow only friends to Duet with you. To set this up, visit Privacy settings and adjust the 'Who can Duet with me' option.
5. Screen Time Management
Worried about spending too much time on TikTok? You can set a time limit for your daily TikTok usage. It's found under the 'Digital Wellbeing' options in the settings.
6. Hide from Public Search
You can choose to be invisible in public search on TikTok. This is handy for users who want more privacy. Adjust this in the 'Privacy and Safety' settings.

Many users aren't aware that TikTok can be enjoyed on desktops too. Although the experience might differ slightly, the option to watch videos on a larger screen is great. If you face any issues, our guide on TikTok desktop not showing videos might help.
