TikTok is all about sharing your talents with the world to make them see that. However, it may look easy on the outside, making a perfect video is no easy task! There are actually a lot of cuts that go into making the video. And even then, somehow, you may not want to post the final cut.

If you have saved your video as a draft on TikTok but want to get rid of it now, then here is everything that you need to know to go about it.

What are TikTok Drafts

Drafts are basically saved videos, edited or not, that you started to create but did not want to publish on TikTok. When you save a draft on your TikTok, the video is uploaded to TikTok’s server. If you captured the video from the TikTok application itself, then it won’t be available by default in the camera roll or gallery of your phone.

You can save your drafts once your video has been edited; right before posting it. There is also no limit on the number of drafts that you can save on your TikTok account. These saved drafts are private and only you can view them.
