Can you edit a TikTok caption after posting?

TIKTOK is a very large, user-friendly app that has taken off as one of the most popular video-sharing platforms used today.

When uploading a video to TikTok, it's important to make sure you have your caption prepared before you post it.

Can you edit a TikTok caption after posting?

Unfortunately, what's done is done. TikTok captions cannot be edited after the post has been made.

However, there are ways to work around this.

Much like Twitter, the only way around a botched post is to copy and reupload your video as soon as errors have been detected.

The sooner into the post's life cycle, the better. Unless your post has gone viral, it is never too late to delete and re-upload a video.

What happens to the video if you need to edit your caption?

There is a simple way to preserve the original video, complete with all of its edits, filters, and added effects, without having to go through the pain of re-recording it all a second time.

Here is what TikTok users can do if they need to preserve the original video:

  • Go to the "me" tab on the far right bottom corner of your app which will take you to your own profile.
  • Click on the video you want to reupload, and tap the "…" option on the rightmost side of the screen.
  • Click "save video" and the entire video, edits and all, will be saved to your device.
  • You can then immediately tap the "+" button in the middle bottom portion of your app to reupload your post with an improved caption.

What else do I need to know when editing a TikTok?

Due to the nature of the app, individual likes, views, and comments on the original post will be lost.

However, if you caught your mistake early enough into the post's lifecycle, you won't be missing out on too much traffic or engagement.

The best way to avoid losing out on engagement is to draft captions in a separate app such as Notes, run spellcheck, and make sure you are using all relevant and appropriate hashtags.
