TikTok invented the concept of short video creation. They believed that short videos would engage more users than longer ones. As a result, their idea received a massive response from all over the world. However, they had to discontinue their service in some countries due to unavoidable circumstances.

However, the app is still accessible in most of the major countries. But, in April 2022, many TikTok users reported an “Age Restricted Error.” They are all apprehensive and looking for a solution to fix it. With that in mind, we have analysed the issue and prepared this guide to help you select the error.

What is the age-restricted TikTok error, and how do you fix it?

As the error suggests, the user who receives this error may be under 18 years of age. However, interestingly, a TikTok user claimed that they were 27 years old and still got the same error. Upon evaluating this statement, we have found that there is one option that can influence the age restriction error. Our analysis found that if your TikTok account has age restriction mode enabled, it may encounter this type of error. Therefore, we recommend that you turn off the age restriction mode.

However, many users don’t know where to find the age restriction mode. To clarify, below are some steps that will show you how to turn off that mode quickly. Let’s move on to the following steps and learn more about it without wasting more time.

  • Launch the TikTok app on your device.
  • Then, in the bottom right corner, tap on the profile icon.
  • Then, tap on the three lines appearing in the top-right corner.
  • Now, tap on the “Settings & Privacy” section.
  • Next, tap on the “Digital Wellbeing” option.
  • As a result, you will see the “Restricted mode” status.
  • Now, if “Restricted Mode” is on, tap on it.
  • Afterwards, enter the 4-digit PIN you created when you enabled the age-restricted mode.
  • Next, disable the age-restricted mode.
  • That’s it! Now, try playing the video that was causing the error.

With the above steps, your age restriction mode will be disabled. If, after doing that, you are still getting the same error, it means there are some issues on the administrative end. In that case, we recommend contacting the official TikTok website. You can also reach out to them through their social media handles.

In conclusion, these are the leading causes of the age restriction error. Most of the time, your error will be fixed after following these steps. However, if any user is confused about the given steps, they are free to ask in the section provided below.
