Can you see who viewed your TikTok video or profile?

The answer to this question is pretty straight-forward. As of 2020, TikTok does not show you who viewed your videos. Nor does it allow you to see which users looked at your TikTok profile.

If you have recently viewed someone’s video and are now worrying that they will find out, then relax. Take a chill pill. Firstly, there is no tool or feature that allows them to see this information. Secondly, any person or third-party app that tells you otherwise is lying.

Can you see who looked at your TikTok videos?

No. You cannot see who viewed your TikTok videos.

TikTok will only show you who has commented on your video or liked it. Video views are only shown as an aggregated number. For example, “1139” or “12.3K”. Individual views are not accessible.

I know this because I have uploaded several videos to the app. This is what it looks like from the creator’s point of view.

The screenshot above shows you what it looks like from my perspective. In other words, this is what it looks like from the uploader’s point of view. As you can see, it pretty much looks the exact same as what a visitor would see if they were to view my TikTok profile. The only difference is that I can see my Drafts section.

Furthermore, the view count for each video is shown as one figure. i.e. There is no special option for me to see which users looked at it. There is no “viewers” option like you’d find on Instagram Stories.

Similarly, viewing the video directly also doesn’t provide such an option.

In the screenshot above, you can see that it looks the exactly the same as what a viewer would see if they were to watch my video. The only difference is that I can modify the privacy settings or delete it via the white dotted menu.

Can you see who looked at your TikTok page?

No. You cannot view who visited your TikTok page. In short, such a feature would probably dissuade users from looking at other people’s TikTok profiles.

Personally speaking, I would avoid clicking on anyone’s page if I knew that such a feature existed. In addition, I know for a fact that I’m not the only person who thinks this way.

This isn’t LinkedIn, my friend.

Conclusion.

In conclusion, the answer is no, TikTok does not show you who looked at your videos or your profile. This is by design. Such features are likely to create a negative user experience. In other words: Drama. And I think we can all agree that TikTok currently has enough drama as it is. There is no need for them to pour more gasoline onto the fire by allowing people to see who viewed what.
