Are you ready to go live on TikTok to talk with others like most influencers do?

Part 1: Can Anyone Go Live on TikTok?

Of course! Anyone can live stream on TikTok as long as it complies with the minimum criteria of age and followers and does not break the Community Guidelines. If you want to know whether you meet the criteria for TikTok live broadcast, you can check the below official instructions from TikTok.

  1. You need to be 16 years of age.
  2. You need to have over 1,000 followers.
  3. You can get virtual gifts if youre 18 years+

This seems to be unfriendly to some users who do not meet the age and followers requirements but still want to go live stream on TikTok. Never mind, the next steps will help you with what to do.

Part 2: How to Go Live on TikTok?

How to Go Live on TikTok with 1,000 Followers?

If you have 1,000 followers on your TikTok account and are over the age of 16 years, that will be pretty easy to go live on it. Only you need to do it, just follow 5 steps.

  1. Tap on the create icon on the home screen. (that plus button on the bottom)
  2. Swipe to LIVE in the navigation, select an image, and write a title for your LIVE streaming.

An attractive image and title can bring huge traffic to your live broadcast room, so be sure that they grab your viewers attention.

You can tap on the three dots to change a variety of settings when you're going to LIVE. You could also have control over your streaming by filtering out comments and by adding some moderators.

Once youre ready, press Go LIVE to start your stream. ( it will give you 3 seconds to prepare)

How to Go Live on TikTok without 1,000 Followers?

Generally speaking, this is not a 100% feasible method to go live on TikTok without 1,000 followers, since its just a short-term cheating way to open the live broadcast, but you can still give it a try.

  1. Open your TikTok and tap Profile in the bottom-right corner, underneath the person icon.
  2. go live on tik tok

  3. Tap the three horizontal lines icon in the top right corner.
  4. Go to “Settings and Privacy”.
  5. Tap report a problem( this will be underneath the support header).

  8. Then, write a report like Hello! My TikTok account suddenly cannot go live normally, please check it for me, thank you!

Certainly, this method is not suitable for everyone. If it still doesnt work in the end, youd better enrich the content of your account to get more popular and reach 1,000 followers.

Part 3: Can I Monitor Someone's TikTok without Them Knowing?

Yes! If you are a parent and want to check whether your kid's TikTok has seen any unhealthy information, or you want to check whether your partner is cheating on you on TikTok, I highly recommend you use KidsGuard Pro.

You will be able to track someones TikTok to see his watch history and search history without be discovered.
