What is TikTok Trivia, exactly? Here are all the answers to your burning questions about the app's live quiz event—from who can take part to what the trivia rounds will feature...

While we usually turn to the app for all things trends—like the mascara trend and all the latest fashion and beauty much haves, like lip gloss nails and of course, the 'glazed donut' manicure—we can now also put our general knowledge to the test.

TikTok has just announced a new, interactive trivia in partnership with Lionsgate and the movie John Wick: Chapter 4, which will see players compete over a five-day period for the chance to win prize money.

Sounds exciting, huh? But how can we take part and what will these TikTok Trivia questions entail? Here's everything we know about the upcoming event, plus how to get rid of those TikTok Trivia pop-ups—because users are already sick of them...

What is TikTok Trivia?

TikTok Trivia is a five-day interactive quiz event brought to us by Lionsgate and John Wick: Chapter 4, launching on February 22nd, 2023.

Basically, it's just a series of live quizzes that will feature a range of Trivia questions that will not only test your general knowledge but also suss out the true John Wick fans.

TikTok announced that the Trivia event will be hosted by TikToker and actor James Henry and is open to US users over the age of 18. You can register now, by either clicking the pop-up on your For You Page, searching #TikTok Trivia, or heading directly to the official TikTok account.

When does TikTok Trivia start?

The quiz event officially kicks off on February 22, and will last through to February 26, with the first three says featuring two sessions starting at 5-6 pm PT/8-9 ET and 6-7 pm PT/9-10 pm ET.

So be sure to have registered by then, if you want to take part.

What will the TikTok Trivia questions be about?

As for the questions themselves, sadly we can't give you a cheat sheet but we can give you a very vague idea of what the rounds will entail—so helpful of us, we know.

TikTok says: "Each session will have several rounds of trivia questions where you can select answers from multiple-choice options. There will be diverse quiz categories, including everything from lifestyle and sports to music and beauty (and yes...John Wick)." 

We reckon there will also be a few TikTok-related questions in there too—so get hitting the books, STAT and make sure you're up to date with all the best TikTok songs and trends!

TikTok also told users to, "keep an eye out for special Survival Rounds, where there is no limit to the number of questions, and the difficulty of the questions will keep increasing". Intense!

How to get rid of TikTok Trivia pop-ups?

Now onto the most burning question of all it seems—how to get rid of those pesky pop-ups.

TikToker's have been getting a tad exasperated with the constant pop-ups and adverts plugging the Trivia event...

Alas, as it stands there's no way to permanently get rid of the pop-ups from your feed but you can click the little "X" to close them—though next time you open the app they might return. One user has even Tweeted that actually registering for the quiz hasn't eased the pop-up reminders.

As for the video ads, interspersing your content, there's no way to stop them except scrolling on past them. From February 26, though the pop-ups and ads will hopefully stop, as that's the last day of the event—so hang in there!
