How to Tell If Someone Viewed Your TikTok Video

If you frequently post content on a video-based social platform such as TikTok, keeping track of your account’s analytics and stats might become necessary to maintain ample growth and engagement.

How to Tell If Someone Viewed Your TikTok Video

Unfortunately, you can’t keep track of stats, such as which specific users view your video on TikTok. There used to be a workaround that let you see people who visited your profile to get an idea of who was engaging with your videos.

However, unlike what other websites would have you believe, the feature is no longer present in TikTok—it was removed from the app sometime in early 2020 for reasons unknown. TikTok never announced their removal of the video views functionality, nor did they explain why they did so. Therefore, we are only left to speculate about why they removed the feature. The good news is, nobody can tell if you’re viewing their content, and you don’t even have to block them to keep them from seeing that!

Beyond not being able to see who viewed your videos specifically, there is other helpful analytics you can use to maintain a healthy and growing TikTok profile, as well as make changes to fit your channel’s following better. This method involves a few steps, including changing your account to a “Pro” account and going into the Analytics page to see and analyze your statistics.

See Video Views

Even if you can’t inspect all the users who have seen your video, you can still keep track of your video views. If you want to go viral on TikTok, keeping track of your post views is necessary. While all videos appear on the “For You” page, TikTok determines which videos appear more through a complex algorithm that considers the number of views versus the number of likes and comments.

Thankfully, you can keep up with your video views easily via your profile page. Just follow these instructions:

  1. Launch the TikTok app and tap the Me icon at the bottom-right of the screen. You’ll reach your personal profile screen.
  2. If you’re not already there, select the Timeline icon(6 vertical lines) below the Edit Profile button to to go your videos.
  3. Even though you can’t see who viewed your post, you’ll see the number of views at the bottom-left corner of each posted video. This is a useful indicator as to how much traction your video is getting as well as how popular it is.

Suppose you’re unhappy with the number of views. In that case, you can employ certain tricks such as utilizing relevant hashtags, taking advantage of current trends, making sure your video is engaging, and more.

Viewing Your TikTok Channel’s Analytics

If you’d like to view your channel’s statistics and analytics since identifying viewers is no longer possible, follow the instructions below.

  1. Tap on the “Me” icon.
  2. Tap the “vertical ellipsis” (three verticla dots) in the top-right corner to access your profile’s settings.
  3. Find and tap on “Creator Tools” in the menu.
  4. Next, tap on “Analytics.”
  5. If you haven’t activated them before, you’ll need press the button that says “Turn On.”

The analytics page offers you an assortment of views, which provide insights into various parts of your TikTok account.

The “Followers” tab provides insights on who follows you:

Why Are TikTok Analytics So Important?

Catering your content to your audience is incredibly important, as it can mean the difference between gaining and losing followers. Even as a small, budding creator on TikTok, it’s wise to keep an eye on your analytics so you can see which of your videos has the best engagement, what kind of content is doing well on your profile, who and where your audience is, and so much more. Sure, you can’t see who viewed your TikTok posts, but you can see how many.

Catering your content to your audience by doing more of what works is always a failsafe strategy to grow your TikTok following into the profile of your dreams.

Be Careful with Public Videos

Although having plenty of views is exciting and may feel good, it’s always essential to keep your content appropriate and safe. Posting inappropriate content may get your videos taken down and your profile banned.

If you’re posting a video that you wouldn’t want just anyone to see, it might be wise to switch your profile to private and restrict who can follow you. However, if you’re looking for some fun, family-friendly content to post, consider doing one of the many TikTok challenges out there to grow your fanbase.

TikTok Views FAQS

Can I see who viewed my TikTok video?

No, although this used to be a feature in TikTok, it is no longer available. Unfortunately, there’s no word on whether the company will bring the option back, but it isn’t very likely. The only way to know if a user has watched your TikTok videos is if they’ve engaged with it, such as posting a like or comment.

Can I tell if someone viewed my profile?

Yes, thankfully. This feature remains intact today. Profile viewers are shown but not viewers of posts. If someone views your profile, tap on the notifications tab, and you will see the person listed under the activity section.

If I’ve blocked someone on TikTok, will they know I’ve viewed their videos?

Although there isn’t any way to know if someone viewed a specific video, there are notifications for profile visits. Assuming you’re viewing their profile when not logged in, you should be safe.
