However, recently we have been hearing a lot of fuss about some posts being hidden from the public and it says, “Post unavailable: This post is age protected”.

Many of you are facing this error while scrolling TikTok and today, I am going to show you how you can get rid of it and enjoy all TikTok content like before.
