How to put TikTok on Instagram
TikTok and Instagram are without a doubt the social networks of the moment. These are two services that have been able to capture the attention, especially of the younger ones. Both focus on light and undemanding communication, which passes through videos and images. In this regard, you may have found it interesting to put TikTok on Instagram . Let me explain: since the contents are very similar to each other, you could exploit them in both platforms by connecting the accounts, without having to download the videos and post them later; also, you could link your TikTok profile to the Instagram Bio, in order to attract new followers.
Are you wondering how to do it? Well, you will find out by reading my guide carefully. I only anticipate that, by exploiting the (enormous) potential of TikTok in IG posts, you could collect unexpected visibility. And in addition to increasing conversions, with a bit of creativity, you could also end up in the Explore section of Instagram.
How the link between TikTok and Instagram works
If you intend to connect TikTok and Instagram , I want to cheer up your soul right away: this feature was provided by the developers and is therefore directly achievable , using the Chinese app options.
But how does this link work ? In much the same way that Facebook is connected to Instagram, content shared on TikTok will be shared directly on Instagram , at the same time. You will also have dedicated statistics available.
You will be able to share everything you create with TikTok on Instagram. In fact, since these are videos , these will also be supported by the other social network, including music and special effects.
To increase TikTok followers, you could also show a profile link in your Instagram Bio . By doing so, those who visit your profile, for example to see your featured IG stories, may follow it to become your TikTok followers.
What happens when you link TikTok to Instagram
Linking TikTok to Instagram brings with it consequences . You will need to use the Instagram account credentials , otherwise the procedure will fail. Of course, these are encrypted data, which are not transmitted in clear text, and which TikTok uses only to associate profiles. However, the fact remains that you will have to enter your password in order for everything to go well.
For the rest, this is a far from risky procedure. The sharing of content between the two platforms will take place only with your consent and never automatically. Moreover, you will be able to disassociate accounts at any time. So, you will have full control over what to share and what not.
Benefits of linking TikTok and Instagram
There are also aspects positive to analyze. If you are a fan of social networks and you spend a lot of time between one platform and another, you will be able to create videos in a much more advanced and faster way, but above all in less time.

Once the recording is finished, your video can be automatically shared on Instagram , as it is, without having to download it to the gallery or to the Camera Roll.
