Open TikTok Links Through Messenger [FIX]

First, you need to turn on an option called ‘Open Link in Default Browser‘. To do this, go to your messenger app, tap on those 3 horizontal lines next to “Chats”. Here presson settings (gear icon). If you press it, you’ll go to the settings. From there, go to the “photos & media” option and tap on it.

Once you’re there, make sure that “Open links in default browser” is turned ON. This option allows your messenger app to open links in your default browser and will no longer use Messenger’s browser. As a result, links from apps like TikTok, Facebook, and YouTube will be opened in their respective native apps.

    Worked like a charm! THANK YOU!! This problem had been bothering me for months. The only difference was: my Messenger settings said “open links in external browser”. Despite the different choice of words in the settings, it seems to work just as the tutorial says. So glad to have this solved, thanks again!
