How to setup social login with TikTok


Adding social login with TikTok to your app with Clerk is simple - you only need to set the Client ID, Client Secret and Authorized redirect URI in your instance settings.

To make the development flow as smooth as possible, Clerk uses preconfigured shared OAuth credentials and redirect URIs for development instances - no other configuration is needed.

For production instances, you will need to create your own developer account with Google and generate your own Client ID and Client secret.

The purpose of this guide is to help you setup a TikTok developer account and a TikTok OAuth app - if you're looking for step-by-step instructions using Clerk to add social login (OAuth) to your application, follow the Social login (OAuth) guide.
