TikTok: How to turn off Age Protection? A step-by-step guide

Post is Age Restricted TikTok

Are you one of the TikTok users currently experiencing the problem “Post-Unavailable… This Post is Age-Restricted”? Well, worry not for we just have the perfect solution for you.

Since 2016, TikTok has been on the rise as a go-to platform when it comes to short videos. Replacing the once-was favorite Vine, TikTok emerged not only as a video-sharing app but also as a social media platform. Millions of videos are getting uploaded each day and thousands of influences are gaining popularity by just posting their videos.

However, TikTok is very wary of NSFW (Not Safe For Work) videos especially since they have users that are under the age of 13. The developers are strict when it comes to monitoring every content of the app. Despite all that, if you have accidentally set your age to 13 (or below), there’s a way you can bypass the “Post is Age-Restricted” feature by just following the steps we are providing today. To learn about this technique, just scroll down below.

How to turn off Age Protection in 8 easy steps

Recently, there have been numerous TikTok trends that are surrounded by controversies.

An infamous trend called “Vabbing” was kind of weird considering that it is very unusual and unhygienic at times. However, more and more women are diving in on the fun of this TikTok trend that aims to attract sexual partners. The more you know about it, the weirder it gets. Vabbing is basically just sticking your fingers in your reproductive organ (i.e. the V) to try and get some “lady juices”. Afterward, you put it behind your ears, making it seem like a perfume or cologne. If that does not creep you out then I don’t know what does!
