Next, you can click on the Connect with TikTok button to continue.
Doing this will open https://www.tiktok.com on your website where you can connect your account.

In fact, the plugin won’t be able to make any changes to your account at all. This means it’s completely safe!
To continue, you can click on the Authorize button here.
Just like that, you’ve added your account as a source for the TikTok Feed Pro plugin.
