Tips to get and use TikTok API step by step


Have you ever heard about the TikTok API?

TikTok API is a set of application programming interfaces for the TikTok app. Developers can utilize the platform to create an interface for creators and users. It allows users to share videos with the entire TikTok community or to embed TikTok movies on a website.

How can I obtain the TikTok API?

TikTok offers an open API to anyone who creates an account on the developers' website with the intention of integrating TikTok into their product.

Step 1 – Create an account

First, go to the TikTok developers portal and register an account.

Click login and enter the service if you already have an account or click Sign up.

Then fill in your email address and click Send PIN to email.

Check your inbox for the TikTok platform's automated message. Press Next after entering the code to verify your developer account. Remember that you only have one minute to complete this task.

The final step is to create a password for account access

Step 2 – Accept the ‘’TikTok for developers’’ Terms of service

The next step is to read and accept the TikTok Developer Terms and Conditions agreement that appears in the next window.

Step 3 – Connect a new application

Choose Connect a new app filed in the My apps tab once you’ve logged in your account.

Upload the icon for the app you wish to connect with TikTok and give it a name. To continue, press Start.
