This is why there are many short queries that come forward regarding the app, such as how to delete a TikTok comment, how to delete a TikTok video, how to find favorites on TikTok, etc.
Previously we have covered deleting a video on TikTok, finding favorites on TikTok, and how to save a TikTok to camera roll. In this article, we have come up with a solution for another query regarding the app, and that is how to delete a comment on TikTok and whether it is possible to delete comments in bulk.
Deleting a comment on TikTok is not something huge, anyone can do it and all it takes are just a few simple steps to accomplish it. To get started and do it easily, follow the steps below.
How to delete a comment on TikTok from a mobile phone
Step 1: Open your TikTok application and tap on “ME” to open your profile, at the bottom right corner of the screen.
Step 2: Once you are on your profile, all you have to do is, tap on the video, from which you wish to delete the comment.
Step 3: Now tap on the “Bubble” icon to go to the comment section. Here scroll down and find the comment that you wish to delete.
Step 4: After finding the comment, give a long press to the comment. This would pop up a list of commands, select, “Delete.”
Note: Don’t give a long press to the comment or hit delete, unless you are 100% sure, because, unlike other applications, TikTok won’t confirm before fulfilling the command. Moreover, you can use the above-given way on both, android and on iPhone as well.

How to delete a TikTok comment via a web browser?
Step 1: To begin with, open any internet browser you use, for example, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc. Next, open tiktok.com and log in with your account credentials.
Step 2: Once you log in, take your cursor on your Avatar, which you’ll find at the top-right corner of your screen. Don’t tap on the Avatar, just put your cursor on it so it can bring down a list. Tap on the first option, “View Profile.”
Step 3: As your profile opens, you’ll see all your videos there. Now select the video from which you wish to delete a comment.
Step 4: Once that video opens, find the comments on the left side of your screen. Now locate the comment that you want to delete and then hover your cursor over the three horizontal dots that would be appearing at the side of the comment. This will bring a drop-down menu. Select, “Delete” to complete the action.
We hope that you might have got the answer you were looking for. However, while we are talking about deleting comments from TikTok, let us also give you a small update that TikTok has come up with recently and this is one of the brilliant things TikTok could’ve done for its users.
If you are using TikTok since before 2021 or early 2021, you might be aware that TikTok didn’t have one of the most useful features, and that was bulk deleting comments or bulk reporting, or bulk blocking. However, with this new feature introduced by TikTok, you can easily do this.
What is the new feature on TikTok?
TikTok was a huge hit even before the Pandemic, however, after the Pandemic when the world started to go on lockdowns, it not only made people frustrated but also was affecting their mental health enormously. In times like this, TikTok was a happy place for many. Many new content creators grew out of their cocoon and today have thousands and millions of followers.
While the app helped as an outlet for people to keep themselves sane, some use it to take out their frustrations on videos of content creators by making vulgar and ugly comments and trolling them. Due to this, many emerging content creators stopped creating content because they would get insane trolling on their videos, which eventually led their morale down.
However, TikTok realized this bullying going on with the content creators and, thus, came up with a new tool that would help solve the problem of the content creators, if not fully then at least some of it.
On May 20, 2021, TikTok officially posted: “Today we’re launching a new way for creators to more easily manage interactions with their content. People put their hearts and souls into creating and entertaining on TikTok, and we recognize how discouraging it can feel to receive unkind comments on videos. So we’re introducing the ability to delete multiple comments at once or report them for potentially violating our Community Guidelines. Accounts that post bullying or other negative comments can now be blocked in bulk, too. We hope this update helps creators feel more empowered over their experience on TikTok.”
While this new update may sound a relief for the content creators, it has also gotten controversial reviews as well. By applying this method, many content creators, who are not posting relevant and good content, can create a persona that their videos are being well received, while the truth might be that the broader TikTok community would not be liking their content, but this new tool would give them leverage.
This kind of lash back was faced by Twitter as well previously when it introduced the “Hidden Replies” feature for its Twitterverse in 2019. This feature allowed the original Twitter poster to hide the replies on their retweets, that were unhelpful or rude, while not deleting them entirely.
However, with TikTok, it’s not the same. TikTok is giving control to the users on how they wish to develop their profile and what they would like to keep and what they might want to delete. Now that we are aware that TikTok also offers a bulk delete option, find below how to use it to your advantage.
How to delete TikTok comments in bulk?
Well, this is also as simple as deleting a single comment on TikTok. To begin with, the process, follow the steps below.
Step 1: Open the TikTok app and go to your profile.
Step 2: Next, select the video from which you need to delete the comments in bulk
Step 3: Now, either, give a long press to the comment or tap to the “Pencil” icon that would be at the top right corner of your screen.
Step 4: Here you’ll find “Manage multiple comments”
Step 5: Now select all the comments that you wish to delete. However, make sure they are no more than 100.
Step 6: Tap on “Delete” and then tap on “Delete” again to confirm your action.
This way you’ll be able to delete, report or block rude and unhelpful comments.
With this, we have come to conclude our mini TikTok guide that answers how to delete TikTok comments and how to delete them in bulk as well. We hope that this is helpful for you. Lastly, to learn more about TikTok, do give read to our other guides that explain
