Can You Find Someone on TikTok By Email?
Yes, you can (in a way) but only by certain methods. These methods consist of utilizing other sources to get to the point of finding the account you are looking for, using other means such as; syncing your contacts to TikTok, putting their name through Facebook, and or using Google. Even so, sometimes, if the person you are searching for does not want to be found on TikTok or otherwise.
How to Find TikTok By Email
There are a number of possible ways to find a TikTok account by email address, such as syncing your contacts to TikTok.
You can also use your Google browser to help find a reverse email tool to assist you in finding out their identity, which helps you all the more in finding their TikTok account.
This can be quite useful if you are trying to find someone who is attempting to stay hidden on TikTok and otherwise.
1. Ask For Their TikTok Account By Emailing Them
One route you can take with trying to find someone’s TikTok is to simply email them by their email address and ask them for their TikTok account.
If they do oblige you, however, you are not sure how to email a TikTok link in order for you to get to their account. You can follow these simple steps to send an email containing a TikTok link:
Step 1. Tap “Settings” and then “Privacy”.
Step 2. Choose “Manage Account” then select “Email”.
Step 3. Log out of the account.
Step 4. Tap “Profile” in the bottom right.
Step 5. Tap “Sign up”.
Step 6. Tap Log in at the bottom of the page.
Step 7. Select “Use phone /email /username”.
Step 8. Choose “Email / Username”.
This will enable them to send you their link to their TikTok through the email, giving you access to their profile, like, follow, and/or whatever your goal may be.
This is an easy and good way to go about this situation, as you are asking the person directly and not “snooping” for information which can come off a little awkward if not done correctly.

Many folks will come up with interesting and creative ways of making a username for an email address; sometimes, these usernames can contain birthday dates, pet names, and/or their real name / a variation of their real name.
If the person you are trying to find their TikTok account is a coworker, it is likely that they already have their actual name in their email address.
Now, if they have their name or nickname in their email address, it is possible and likely that they would have the same name in their TikTok username.
If you are able and confident enough to find their name in the email address, you can certainly take that info and enter the name or nickname in the TikTok search bar.
If you know enough about the person, such as their look, style, and common nicknames, you should be able to pick them out of the crowd that will appear when searching for them on TikTok.
3. Sync your Contacts on TikTok
A very good and reliable option for trying to find someone’s TikTok account is to sync your contacts with TikTok. This will give TikTok the permission and access needed in order for them to locate the account you are attempting to find.

Depending on the information you choose to share with TikTok, they may show a suggested account to you because the account belongs to:
Someone whose phone number is in your phone contacts, and you’ve chosen to sync your phone contacts in the “Sync Contacts” and Facebook friends setting.
If you would like to sync your contacts with TikTok, you follow these easy steps to do so: Tap “Settings” and then “Privacy”. Tap the toggle icon next to Sync contacts to turn on or off.
To find friends from your contact list:

Step 2. Tap “Find friends”, located on the upper left corner.
Step 3. Tap “Find contacts”.
Step 4. Allow TikTok to access your contacts.
Step 5. Find your friends!
This will both sync your contacts to your TikTok and give TikTok access to your contacts. Now, so long as you are okay with giving this permission to TikTok, you should have no problem finding your friend’s
TikTok account while using this method. Also, ensure you have added their email to your contacts to ensure this method works properly.

This is where you can find that person’s TikTok account. Searching their email address could lead you to their TikTok account by maybe a Facebook account or even take you directly to said TikTok account.
This is also quite simple, seeing as all you will need to do is enter their email address (you can copy and paste it too), then enter it into the Google search bar and of course, hit “Search”.
This will bring up all the accessible information attached to the said email address and could possibly also bring up that precious TikTok account.
Another thing to remember in this scenario is that the friend or person you are trying to find on TikTok; may not want to be found.
See, with the TikTok, it has essentially unlocked another form of self-expression, and this can take many different forms for each person. That this app/site gives the ability to any account user to start recording and sharing almost any content they deem fit.
This of course, has been done before; however, not quite in this capacity, where it sets a neutral environment to dive into, gather information and preferences, then tailors it to fit you.
Along with this form of self-expression and the potential to reach out to like-minded users and even people who do not have a TikTok account.
Seeing as what content you share lets you shape the experience and perspective, granting the option to essentially create a whole character for the said account that is technically separate from whom they really are.
That said, the person or friend may not want you to find their TikTok account as they may want to portray themselves in a different light or in a different character. In conclusion, be respectful and mindful to these requests as it is a freedom of self-expression and exploration.
