 The Tiktok collection is a popular feature that offers a great way to organize your favorite speed up videos into different categories so you can quickly access them.

However, sometimes you may need to delete a TikTok collection to clean up your account. Deleting a TikTok collection is easy and only takes a few steps.

To Delete a Collection on TikTok:

  1. Open the TikTok app on your Android or iPhone.

How to Delete TikTok Collection on a Desktop?

The TikTok collection feature is only accessible on the mobile app and not available on the desktop version. Therefore, you can not view and delete a TikTok collection on a Desktop.

However, you can still save and watch your Favorite TikTok videos on a desktop computer.

TikTok is primarily a mobile app, therefore, new features are initially introduced on the mobile version and later incorporated for desktop usage.

TikTok released a Collection feature back in March 2022, and we can expect the feature to be made available on desktops in the near future.

But for now, if you want to delete a TikTok collection, you will need to do it from your Android or iOS device.

What Happens When You Delete a TikTok Collection?

When you delete a TikTok collection, it will no longer show up in your profile and all videos saved in it will be deleted.

However, those videos will still be available in your favorites list, but they will not be categorized within the collection.

Please note that any videos deleted along with the collection will not be removed from the TikTok social media platform. You can still view and share those videos with others, but not as part of a collection.

You can create a new TikTok collection and add these videos to it again.

How to Recover Deleted TikTok Collection?

Once you delete a TikTok collection, it is removed permanently from your profile. TikTok doesn’t offer a feature to recover deleted collections.

However, videos that were previously part of that collection will still be available in your Favorites list.

You can create a new collection from those videos, but you can’t restore the deleted ones. Once deleted, they cannot be retrieved.

Deleted TikTok stories can be recovered using third-party apps, but this is not the case for collections.

How to Delete Videos in TikTok Collection?

It’s also possible to delete individual videos from a collection without deleting the entire collection.

  1. Open TikTok on your Android or iPhone.
  2. Tap on the Profile icon, and select the Bookmark option under Edit Profile.
    Go to TikTok Collection
  3. Go to Collections, then select your target collection.
  4. Tap Manage Videos, then press the white circle next to the video you want to delete.
    Tap Manage Videos button
  5. Select Remove, then tap Remove to confirm deletion.

When deleting videos in a collection, it’s important to remember that they will no longer be visible in that collection. They will remain available in your Favorites list, however.

If you change your mind, you can add the video back to the collection as well.

How to Move Collection Videos to Another Collection?

Before deleting a TikTok collection, you also have the option to transfer certain videos to another collection.

  1. Open the collection, from the favorites tab, with the videos you want to move.
  2. Tap on Manage Videos, select your desired videos, and tap Move.
    Select videos from collection and tap Move
  3. Select the collection from the pop-up window.
    Choose Collection to move video to another TikTok Collection
  4. Selected video(s) will be transferred to the specified collection.

You can only use this feature if you have multiple collections created. If you don’t, you’ll need to create one before being able to move the video.

Once moved, the video will now be visible in that collection instead of the previous one.
