By signing up, you agree to comply with Musical.ly’s Terms of Service.
To best way to ensure your information is protected is to make sure your security settings are enabled. Go to the ‘Settings’ tab and click on ‘hide location’. This means that another user close by cannot search for you, and you aren’t identifying your location via GPS.
For the highest protection, click on ‘private account’. Go to your profile using the head icon in the lower left corner and click on the gear icon in the upper right corner. Select “settings” and scroll down to the “private account” function. Private account means you will have to approve anyone who wishes to see your musicals and follow you.
When creating a video, be vigilant about the information you share—for example, wearing your school uniform will indicate what school you attend. To block a user/”fan”, go to their profile, press on the “...” in the upper right corner, and select “block this user.” You can unblock a user on the same menu.
To report abuse, click on the three dots (bottom right) of the music clip and select “report abuse”.
You will then be asked to select a reason.
The app is free to download and there are no in app purchases.
