How to download TikTok in banned countries

In some countries, a TikTok ban means that the app isn’t available on app stores. The easiest way to download TikTok in countries where it is banned is to change your app store’s region.

However, the app may still not work due to TikTok's collection of SIM network data for location tracking. A potential solution could be removing your SIM and connecting via VPN through Wi-Fi, or to use the web version of TikTok.

Download TikTok by changing the region of the Play Store

  • Launch the Google Play Store on your Android device

  • Tap the profile icon, on the top right of the screen

  • Tap Settings > General > Account and device preferences > Country and profiles

  • Select the country you want to add an account to

  • Follow the on-screen instructions, including providing a valid payment method from the new region

  • Tap your name at the top of the page, then tap Media & Purchases

  • Tap View Account, then tap Country/Region

  • Follow the on-screen instructions, including providing a valid payment method from the new country

Download TikTok for Android with APK

On an Android device, you can download apps from outside of the Play Store, and one such way is by transferring or downloading APK files to your device. However, TikTok doesn’t officially make its APK available, so you will need to get it from third-party websites, which poses a security risk.

Should I use a free VPN to access TikTok?

Free proxy services are not recommended for accessing TikTok as they do not offer the same privacy and security benefits of a paid VPN. Many do not work as advertised, some may even sell your data, and most will leave your networks vulnerable to attack.
