Curious to see who’s been stalking you? Or do you want to know how many people visit your TikTok daily? Now you can check up on all the profiles visiting your TikTok profile. 

TikTok is one of the very few social media apps that let you see who viewed your profile. And the best part is that you can see how many views you got on each TikTok video.

Unfortunately, you can’t see who viewed your videos, only the number. 

With that being said, here’s how to see who viewed your TikTok profile and videos.

TikTok allows you to see who viewed your profile. This feature is being removed from newer updates of TikTok, but you can still check to see if it works for you. 

To see who viewed your TikTok profile, here’s what you need to do:

  • Open the TikTok app and log in. 
  • There will be a notification icon that shows all your notifications. Tap it. 
  • In the menu, you’ll see a “viewed your profile” option. Tap on it. 
  • This will show a list of all the people who viewed your TikTok profile. Tap on any specific profile picture to check their profile. 

This is the default method, and it shows who has visited your profile in chronological order. In addition, it shows when they viewed it.

However, it doesn’t lend information on how often someone sees your profile.

Still, if you can keep an eye on the list of viewers, you’ll know who’s coming back to check up on your profile. 

If you’re unable to find the option in your TikTok app, then it’s likely that TikTok removed it.

This is due to a privacy concern. But the upside is that no one can see if you saw their profile either.

Luckily, TikTok allows you to see who viewed your TikTok videos without any excessive difficulty.

To do this, you’ll need to do the following:

  • First, open your TikTok app. 
  • Then, log in to your account if you haven’t already. 
  • Tap on the profile picture icon to go to your profile. 
  • Now, tap on the video that you want to see the views of. 
  • Under the video, you should find a number indicating how many people saw that video. 

This feature allows you to keep track of how many people have seen your videos. The information is essential for knowing how much engagement you have. 

However, this feature does not allow you to see the videos’ profiles, only the number.

Nevertheless, it’s still a useful feature for marketing purposes. 

Can’t Find “Recent Profile Views” Option

Did you try out the above method and fail? Don’t worry. It’s happened with lots of people before.

However, it’s most likely a technical glitch and requires some troubleshooting.

Here’s how you can fix the issue of the “Recent Profile Views” option not appearing:

  • First, rule out a technical glitch. Then, reinstall the app and see if it fixes the issue. If not, try clearing the cache from your phone’s settings (do not delete the app data). 
  • If you’re sure it’s not a technical issue, then try setting your profile to public. 
  • To do this, open up the TikTok app and log in to your account. 
  • Tap on the icon labeled “Me.”
  • Next, tap on Account. 
  • Now, go to Privacy & Safety.
  • Here, you’ll find the Discoverability option. Then, uncheck the “Private account” box and see if the issue gets fixed.
  • If not, consider enabling the “Allow others to find me” option from Privacy & Safety. 

Other people can view your profile and videos.

Lastly, if all else fails, it may be due to the recent update that prevents people from seeing profile visits. 

See Others’ TikTok Profiles Without Letting Them Know

Now that you know how to see who has seen your TikTok profile, you might be wondering if others can too. And the answer is yes; they can see when you visit their profile too. 

If you want to remain completely anonymous on TikTok, however, you’ll need the help of third-party apps. 

The way it works is that you want to view public videos without logging in. TikTok currently doesn’t allow you to do that.

So, you’ll need a third-party app to enable you to view the videos without logging in. 

The market is abundant with TikTok viewer apps, such as urlebird.com and ttonlineviewer.com.

These tools are free to use and won’t let anyone know when you’re viewing their TikTok profiles. 

Besides that, if you can’t see who viewed your profile due to the update, others can’t either. 

Conclusion

TikTok provides creators with the best platform to get the right information about their accounts and views. And now you know all about how to see who viewed your TikTok. 

TikTok also allows you to see how many people viewed your TikTok videos but not who.

And if you want to stay hidden when viewing other people’s accounts and videos, you can use third-party apps. 

All in all, now you know how to check who’s watching your profile and how many people are watching your videos.
