The easiest way to delete a comment on TikTok is by using the mobile app.

  1. Open the TikTok app and tap Me in the lower-right corner to open your TikTok profile.

  2. Tap the TikTok video that you want to moderate.

  3. Tap the comment icon that looks like a speech bubble.

  4. Perform a long press on the comment you want to delete.

    If the comment is particularly offensive, you may want to tap Report before you delete it so that TikTok is aware of the account.

  5. Tap Delete.

    TikTok does not ask for confirmation before deleting a comment, so make sure that you really want to get rid of it before you tap Delete.
