How to turn off captions on TikTok

TikTok has a feature that adds captions to videos by automatically converting speech to text. If you don't want to see captions displayed on top of videos you can turn this feature off from your settings.

  1. Go to your TikTok profile
  2. Tap on "Settings & Privacy"

Can you edit captions in TikTok?

Unfortunately, you cannot edit captions after posting a TikTok video. The only way to edit a post is to delete it and repost it with a different caption.

TikTok caption character limit

In 2022, TikTok increased its caption character limit from 300 to 2,200 characters to match that of Instagram.

Tip: While it's great that TikTok now has the option to write longer captions, most people won't read past the first 2 lines. So, shorter captions are still the way to go on TikTok!
