You’ve danced, laughed, discovered, and created a cascade of colorful moments on TikTok. These snippets of your life have been shared with the world, becoming part of the digital tapestry that defines you. But what happens to your TikTok account when you are no longer around to hit that upload button?

As a major player in the social media sphere, TikTok recognizes the significance of these digital remnants. Currently, TikTok offers one primary option: Account Deletion.

Account Deletion

In the event of a user's death, TikTok does not provide a memorialization feature like Facebook. Instead, loved ones can contact TikTok support to request the deactivation of the deceased user's account. This process requires proof of death, such as a death certificate, and once completed, the account and its content will no longer be accessible.

While straightforward, this process requires action from the bereaved, and the deletion of the account means the erasure of digital memories. This is where Snug can help.

Snug understands the emotional value attached to these digital snippets of life. Our focus is to help you create comprehensive estate plans and organize all of life's details, including your digital legacy, in one secure place.

Through our platform, you can instruct your loved ones on how to handle your TikTok account after your passing, whether you prefer it to be deactivated or maintained as a digital memorial. Snug ensures clear communication of your wishes, eliminating ambiguity during an already challenging time.
