How to Change Region & Language Settings in TikTok

TikTok, the popular social network, has done something different from the start – and has become successful as a result.

The network, which launched in Asia, isn’t just doing something different on the surface. Behind the scenes, the region in which you use TikTok determines what posts you see and who sees your posts. Today I’ll show you a trick to fool your TikTok into thinking it’s a fake region.

Initially, it was still possible to specify the region on TikTok. This was most likely discontinued again due to increasing commercialization – for advertisers it is important to advertise in the correct region of the recipient. Advertising for Taiwanese online stores, for example, is of limited use in United States.

There are several ways to make TikTok “notice” you in a different region. The first two are rather “soft” methods and the last one uses a third-party app.

Follow people from other regions

As with any network, TikTok has an algorithm working in the background. TikTok also tends to show you content that might be of interest to you. For example, you can follow users who live in the region you are interested in. Then you can like and comment on their posts.

Change language

The TikTok app is mostly in the language that is set as the system language on your Android. However, TikTok allows you to specify multiple languages in which content is displayed:

  • Open TikTok
  • Tap on the 3-dot menu
  • Search “Content preferences
  • Now add the language you want to see content in.

Use TikVPN

TikVPN is actually designed to bypass internet blocking in some countries. However, you can also use the app for other purposes and use it to transmit a different region/location to TikTok. By the way, your internet traffic is secured and anonymized. The app is very easy to use. After installation it is only necessary to create an account and then start the connection. From now on, all traffic will be sent over the VPN.
