As soon as that is done, tap the red button once more to stop the recording and tap the red checkmark to move on.

The truth is that TikTok does not permit users to edit the caption of a clip after posting, however, you can still find your way around it for you to avoid recording and reposting the same content again.

  • Click “Me” on the lower left-hand side of your display.
  • Here, all the clips you have posted will be visible. Click on the clip with the caption you wish to correct.
  • Click the 3 vertical dots on the right.
