What's a TikTok PFP

A 'TikTok PFP' refers to your TikTok profile picture. This is shown at the top of your profile page in a circular shape and is the main photo representing your TikTok profile to visitors. What's unique about TikTok profile photos is that you can choose between displaying a static photo or a short video clip. In this post, we'll share some cute ideas for your TikTok profile photos and show you how to change your profile photo and video on TikTok.

Why can't I change my PFP on TikTok?

If you can't change your TikTok PFP, we advise you to reboot your app. Check if there's a newer version of TikTok on the App Store or Google Play Store and update it. Now go to your Profile and try again. The next thing to look at is your internet - are you connected to WIFI? how is the speed? if it's too slow you may have issues changing your TikTok profile picture.
