How to edit the caption on a TikTok by reposting it – Business Insider – Business Insider

TikTok is a great app that lets you create and upload short videos on nearly any topic.

As you're creating a video, you can add music, sound effects, graphics, and many other effects. This is in addition to adding tags and a caption.

Unfortunately though, once you upload a video onto TikTok, you have to put all those editing tools away and be happy with the final product. TikTok doesn't let you edit any part of the video once it's uploaded, including the caption.

As such, before you post anything, you should make sure that you're happy with what you've made.

If you decide you're not, however, or find a typo in the caption, there is a workaround as long as you don't mind losing any immediate likes or comments you may have on your video.

Here's what you need to know, whether you're using TikTok on your iPhone or Android device.

You can't edit a video's caption once it's posted. The solution is to download the video to your phone, delete the video from TikTok, and then reupload it with a new caption.

Here's how to do it.

1. Go to your profile tab on TikTok by tapping the "Me" icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen, and select the video that you want to edit.

5. Once it's deleted, tap the "+" button you would use to add a video, but instead of recording, tap the "Upload" button to the right of the record button.

7. Proceed with the posting process as you normally would, this time adding your new caption.
