Your Quick Answer:

» You can activate ‘Profile View’ on TikTok by navigating to your ‘Profile Page,’ tapping the “Eye” icon on the top right, and selecting “Turn on Profile View” in the red box.
» Try using this feature cautiously, as only users who have also enabled ‘Profile View’ will appear in the list of those who viewed your profile; ensure both parties have this feature activated.
» If you don’t see certain usernames in the list, make sure they have turned on the ‘Profile View’ feature on their accounts to be included in the viewers’ list.

Can You See Who Viewed Your TikTok Profile:

Somewhat yes, you can say. 

The setting is you have to enable a feature called “Profile View” and the condition is, that the other person who is viewing your profile should also have to enable the same settings on his account. 

In short, if on both sides “Profile View” is ON, then you will see the list of people who viewed your profile.

Remember, only those TikTok users’ names will appear on the list, who have kept “Profile View” enabled on their account, otherwise, even though you have enabled it, you won’t be able to see those users’ names. 

Also, do not forget, the same goes for the other side as well. This means, that if you have visited and viewed some other user’s profile on TikTok, then, they will also come to know since on your account “profile view” is ON.

Will you See all people who viewed your TikTok Profile:

No, not all people. You will be able to see only those users who have enabled the “Profile View” feature on their TikTok account, just like you. In short, except for the people who have not turned ON this feature, all will appear on the viewer’s list, and the ones who kept the feature OFF, even though they have visited and have viewed your TikTok profile, won’t appear on the list. 

The same goes for you. If you visit someone’s profile, keeping “profile view” ON, your name will also appear on their viewer’s list. So, whenever you go for viewing some other user’s profile, make sure you have turned OFF the profile view feature on our account.
