Why can’t I see who viewed my TikTok?

Answered by Jason Smith

As of now, TikTok does not provide a direct feature that allows users to see who has viewed their profile. This has been a frequently requested feature by TikTok users, but the platform has not yet implemented it. However, recently, TikTok introduced a new feature called Profile View History, which somewhat addresses this demand.

The Profile View History feature allows users to see a list of the people who have visited their TikTok profile within the last 30 days. However, there is a catch. In order for someone to appear on your Profile View History list, they must also have the Profile View History feature turned on. This means that if someone has not enabled this feature on their account, their profile visit will not be recorded in your list.

The reason TikTok initially did not offer a feature to see who viewed your profile is likely due to privacy concerns. Many social media platforms prioritize user privacy and allow users to browse profiles anonymously. By not providing a visible list of who viewed your profile, TikTok ensures that users have a certain level of privacy and are free to explore the app without worrying about being tracked or monitored.

However, the introduction of the Profile View History feature does provide a partial solution to this demand. It allows users to have some insight into who has visited their profile, albeit with the requirement that both parties have the feature turned on. It is worth noting that not all TikTok users may be aware of or interested in enabling this feature, so the list may not include all profile visitors.

While TikTok currently does not provide a direct way to see who viewed your profile, the new Profile View History feature offers some visibility into profile visitors. However, it is important to remember that this feature only lists users who have also enabled Profile View History on their accounts. Privacy concerns and the desire to allow users to browse anonymously are likely the reasons why TikTok has not offered a comprehensive feature to see who has viewed your profile.
