How to Change Your TikTok For You Page

When you first signed up for TikTok, the app prompted you to select interests that it could use to better tailor your feed. That’s a great start, but the algorithm that decides what ends up in your For You page can get a little stale over time. If you’re sick of watching videos you don’t enjoy, it’s a good idea to reset your FYP.

TikTok uses a lot of factors when deciding what videos to show you on your For You page, including content you’ve watched in the past and creators you follow. It also takes into account your overall activity on the platform, which includes liking or skipping videos and comments. You can let the algorithm know that you’re not interested in a certain type of video by skipping it, but that won’t have a big impact.

If you find yourself getting fed a steady diet of frog videos or cartoons, you can let the algorithm know that by scrolling past them without skipping them. The algorithm will eventually take note and stop showing you that type of video.

You can also reset your For You page by going to your profile in the TikTok app and selecting the ellipsis icon () at the top-right corner of the screen. From there, you can choose “Free Up Space” under the Cache & Cellular Data section to clear your cache and reset your For You page. That won’t delete your account, but it will clear the niche information that the algorithm has about you and your interests.
