How to Reset the TikTok Algorithm

The TikTok algorithm is the secret sauce that makes the social network so popular. It quickly figures out what you like and it’s scarily good at it. We’ll show you some tips to refresh your “For You” page.

If the algorithm is so good at getting to know people, you may be wondering why you’d ever need to “reset” it. Shouldn’t it just change with you? That’s not always how it works. Sometimes it takes a wrong turn down and there’s nothing you can do to correct the course.

Sadly, there’s no big “RESET” button to press. The only way to truly start over would be to create a brand new account. The good news is there are some things you can do to help rewire your FYP a bit.

Clear Cache

The first thing we can do is clear your account’s cache. A “cache” is simply a software feature that stores data for easy access in the future. First, open the TikTok app and go to the profile tab.

Next, tap the hamburger menu icon in the top corner and select “Settings and Privacy.”

Scroll down to “Free Up Space.”

Finally, tap “Clear” next to “Cache.”

“Dislike” Videos

Everyone knows liking a video is a clear sign that you like the content and you want more of it. Did you know you can also “dislike” videos? It’s not a true “dislike” button, but you can tell TikTok you’re not interested in videos that show up on your “For You” page.

From the “For You” page, simply press and hold on a video.

A menu will pop up and you can select “Not Interested.” If you want to be more specific about why you’re not interested, tap “More.”
