Things to remember in TikTok stitching

  • You can change stitching privacy before uploading your video.
  • You can turn on/off the stitching option for friends. Let’s say if you have selected “stitched with friends,” only your friends will be allowed to stitch. 
  • If you have enabled the stitching option for the public, anyone from public profiles can stitch with your video. 
  • If someone has stitched with your video, that person’s privacy will determine who can comment, like, or share your video. 
  • If you aren’t seeing the stitching option on another user’s video, they might have disabled the feature. 
  • Stitched video will only appear on profile who recorded stitched. Your original video will show on your profile. 


Note: If you allow users to stitch with your videos but then change your settings to restrict who can delete or combine with your video, any existing stitches that have already been made will stay on TikTok. If you have any concerns or questions, you can report the video.
