If you have an account on the popular video app created by ByteDance and you publish content, you probably want to know which users visit and interact with your profile. There are third-party applications that promise to do this, but these are not completely reliable, as they request a large amount of data, including account access, which they can then use for malicious purposes. Fortunately, TikTok has found a way to allow the owner of an account to see what people have gone through their user: with a function integrated into the app itself. We tell you the steps to activate it and know who has seen your profile.
First of all, it is necessary update the TikTok app, since the new feature is only available in the latest version. If you have an iPhone, you can download the latest version by accessing the App Store, tapping on your account icon and going to the section called ‘Updates’. If, on the other hand, you have an Android mobile, go to the Google Play Store, click on your profile icon, click on ‘Manage apps and device’ and select the ‘Available updates’ option. Lastly, check if there is a version available to download and install.
Once you have installed the latest version of TikTok, access the app and Click on the ‘Profile’ tab. An eye-shaped icon will appear at the top of your account, indicating that the option to check who has viewed your profile is now available. Click on that icon and then click ‘Activate’. You will be able to see the history of views of the profile in that same section. They will also appear in the inbox, in the ‘Activity’ section.
The ability to see who has viewed your profile on TikTok has some limitations
TikTok’s new feature is an ideal option to see which people have accessed your profile. However, the platform has a series of limitations, so you won’t always know which users of the social network have gossiped about your account.
First of all, TikTok only offers a 30-day viewing history. After that period, the contacts will not be displayed in the list. Besides, other users can also see if you have seen their profile, as long as, yes, they have this feature activated. On the other hand, if a person has this option disabled and visits your profile, you will not be able to tell.
