I get it, it’s really frustrating when your client, or even worse, you accidentally repost an inappropriate video on TikTok. 😖
We all know how one problematic post can spiral into major headaches – like a brand meltdown, a disgruntled audience, or your client facing harsh criticism.
But hey, let’s be real, nobody’s perfect.
Mistakes happen, right?
The key is to tackle the problem head-on.
In situations like these, your best move is to quickly un-repost the video to prevent the issue from escalating.
And in this guide, we’re going to walk you through just that…
There’s a myriad of reasons why you might want to undo a repost on TikTok. Below are some of the most common ones.
Follow the steps below to undo a repost on TikTok.
Launch the TikTok mobile app and log into your client’s account.
Go to your client’s profile page by tapping the profile icon at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
Select the reposted videos icon (center) on your client’s TikTok profile page.
Tap the share arrow button at the bottom right corner.
Select the Remove repost option.
Another option is to tap and hold the share button on the reposted video you want to remove and select the Remove repost button.
TikTok will instantly remove the video, and it should no longer appear in your client’s feed.
You’ve just learned how to undo a repost on TikTok.
You can’t edit the captions and comments after reposting a video on TikTok, whether it’s a Duet, Stitch, video, or slideshow post.
The only option is to undo the repost, add a new comment or caption, and share a new repost of the video.
You basically delete and repost the reshared video content on TikTok, and it will show in the feeds of your clients’ followers again.
Remember to add the reposted video to your client’s Favorites first before deleting the repost.
This way, you can easily find the video, redo your comments and captions, and repost it again.
If you forget to add the video to your client’s Favorites and have already deleted the reposted version, you’ll need to find the post manually.
You can use TikTok’s Search feature to find the video or the original creator.
The easiest way to find your clients’ reposted videos, whether they are TikTok challenges or photo slideshows, is to go to their profiles and navigate to their Reposted Videos tab.
But this doesn’t always work, or it can be too tedious to find the reposts, especially if your client’s accounts have tons of reposted videos.
In this case, scrolling through countless reposted posts to find the video you want can take too much time and effort.
Thankfully, there are other tips and tricks to help you make this process faster and easier, including the following.
If you’ve recently viewed the reposted video, you can look at the Watch History in your client’s TikTok account by following these steps:
You can also find the reposted video if your client’s account liked the post before resharing it.
Navigate back to your client’s TikTok profile and tap the heart icon, which will show the account’s liked videos.
You know the drill, tap to open the liked and reshared video, and follow the steps above to undo the repost.
If nothing else works, consider asking a friend (TikTok users who follows your clients and they follow back) who may have the reposted video in their feeds.
The TikTok friend with lots of time on their hands can comment on the video and mention your client’s handle or share videos via Direct Messages (DMs).
It makes it super easy to find the reposted video and remove it from your clients’ and their followers’ feeds.
While this isn’t the most ideal approach, you can use it as a fallback or plan D in case plans A, B, and C don’t work too well (or at all).
After all, it’s better to cover all your bases and do everything to undo reposting something your clients’ shouldn’t than risk leaving the accidentally reposted video in their feeds.
Trust us, you don’t want content that can potentially ruin the good standing and relationships your clients’ have with followers to hang around their TikTok feeds.
Reposting on TikTok allows your clients to share User-Generated Content (UGCs), connect with other creators and audiences, and boost engagement.
But with great TikTok reposting power comes great responsibility. 🙂
While you can easily undo sharing a video by mistake, you must ensure your clients repost responsibly and properly.
Do this right to avoid undoing TikTok video reposts altogether.
Consider the following before hitting that Repost button.
Be picky with what you repost on your clients’ TikTok feeds.
Remember, while reposting content is not like when you put a link in TikTok bio to lead people to your client’s website and other branded content, it can be an extension of your clients’ brands.
So, ensure the content your clients’ accounts repost align with their brands.
That said, avoid reposting content without developing a plan.
Look for great content that speaks to target audiences and aligns with your clients’ TikTok and social media marketing goals.
Map out the content and how you would plan your clients’ branded and own TikTok and social media content.
This way, you avoid the tedious repost and undo repost process.
Don’t overthink it, and keep it simple. The best way to achieve this is through proper planning.
As entrepreneur Jeff Bullas says…
“Less is more. Keeping it simple takes time and effort.”
Balance things by creating enough original content and sharing someone else’s content and TikTok videos.
While it’s great to support other creators by reposting their content, it’s also vital to let your clients’ creative, fun, and engaging videos shine, including making a slideshow on TikTok.
Strike a good balance between original and reposted content to showcase your clients’ originality while featuring other creators’ videos.
Remember to put the spotlight on your clients’ content and brands.
For example, when reposting other creators’ videos, you can include a description or caption that steers viewers to your clients’ feeds or profiles.
Doing so helps your clients drive authentic audience engagement.
The higher your clients’ engagement, the better their standing with the TikTok algorithm—increasing their chances of getting featured on other users’ For You Pages (FYPs).
Don’t forget to provide proper attribution to the original content creators, and don’t take credit for content your clients didn’t create or own.
Posting and sharing TikTok videos for multiple clients while managing their profiles across various social media platforms is no easy task.

Let’s go over the burning questions about undoing a video repost on TikTok.
Reposting on TikTok is exactly what it suggests: Sharing someone else’s or another creator’s content with your clients’ audiences.
Your reposted videos show up in the FYPs of your clients’ friends, just like the videos your clients own or created.
Turn off the repost feature on TikTok by going to your client’s Profile > Menu (☰) > Settings and privacy > Privacy > Repost.
Toggle the Repost switch off to disable the option.
You can also disable repost notifications by going to Notifications under Settings and privacy and turning the toggle switch off beside Reposts.
However, not all TikTok accounts have the option to turn off TikTok reposts.
Reposting TikTok videos, including their comments, will display the content in the feeds of your clients’ followers.
People who see your clients’ reposted TikTok videos will see the user account that reposted it.
In most cases, your clients’ reposted videos will stay on your clients’ and their followers’ feeds if the TikTok account you reposted the content from is deleted.
But this depends on how you repost video and content to your clients’ feed and whether the deleted account violated copyright policies and the TikTok community guidelines.
If you downloaded the video in and uploaded it to your client’s account as reposted content (with proper permissions and attributions), the video will remain in your client’s TikTok feed.
If TikTok deleted the account you reposted content from due to violations, their videos and reshared posts will likely be removed and will no longer show in your clients’ feeds. [Must read: How to Delete Your TikTok Account : Quick Tutorial]

Whether you’re undoing the repost because of a mistake, you had a change of mind, or you want to keep your clients’ feed consistent and on-brand, it’s always good to know how to remove a re-shared TikTok video.
