You can easily turn on dark mode for iPhones on the TikTok app as we’ll explain later in this guide but Android users are yet to get a direct option to enable dark mode on TikTok.

  1. Open the TikTok app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap the ‘Profile’ icon at the bottom right corner.
  3. Tap the hamburger menu (three lines) at the top right corner.
  4. Select Settings and Privacy > Dark Mode.
  5. There, you can switch between the dark mode or light mode for your iPhone on the TikTok app.

There are no dedicated settings in the TikTok app for Android phones to enable/disable dark mode. But, you can simply adjust the TikTok app’s settings by turning the dark mode on/off on your Android phone. When you enable dark mode on your Android device, it gets forced on all the native apps that support dark mode. So, you do not need any additional settings to enable TikTok dark mode.

So, this is how you can enable TikTok Dark Mode on your Android or iPhone. Follow the steps mentioned above for your Android phone or iPhone and you can adjust your device as per your preference.
