Why Is Tiktok Video Not Showing Up For Others

✎ Key Takes:

» You can fix issues where your TikTok videos don’t appear for others, mainly if your phone is in Airplane mode or if there’s a server outage affecting the app’s functionality.
» Also, try fixing i.e. switching from a private to a public account, clearing TikTok cache files, or resolving network issues by changing the connection or restarting the app to address the problem of videos not showing up.

Why Is TikTok Video Not Showing up for Others:

These might be the reasons why the TikTok video is not showing up:

1. The phone is in Airplane mode

If your TikTok video is not showing, your phone may be in Airplane mode, so you are disconnected from your network. Turning your connection on or off does not matter because you will still be disconnected from your network until you do not turn it on.

Phone is in Airplane mode

To do that, scroll down the screen from the extreme top of the screen where the battery percentage, SIM cards, and time show; scroll down the screen slowly, and you will see many options there; select “Airplane Mode”.

You can also set your Settings, go to the “Network & internet” subsection and turn on the “Airplane mode” option. 

2. You Posted Something spam

If you are frequently doing something on Tik Tok like threatening someone or using foul language that breaks the guidelines, then their technical team will keep an eye on your account.

Suppose your posted video is misleading someone or sharing misinformation that could potentially cause harm to an individual or a community or blackmailing someone.

In that case, TikTok deletes your video from your profile, and others can not see it.

If you are depicting or promoting sexual exploitation, or nudity in general, as well as posting glorious content of grooming and other harmful activities involving minors or encouraging other people to commit violence through your videos, it will also be deleted. 

3. TikTok Account is Private

Another reason for not showing your videos to others is that your account is private. If anyone’s profile is locked, i.e., they make their TikTok profiles private, it means others can not see his posted videos or posts.
