Ever wondered if you have a “type” when it comes to the kind of videos and content you watch and engage with on TikTok?

Well, one of the leading features that is being increasingly accessed by TikTok users is an ability to look back at videos they have previously viewed – whether for personal enjoyment, entertainment, inspiration, or something else.

Here’s where to find all the videos that you have viewed on TikTok…

3 Steps to Find Viewed Videos on TikTok

  1. Navigate to your profile page on TikTok then click on the menu button in the top right hand corner, indicated by the three horizontal lines.
  2. Select ‘Settings and Privacy’ then ‘Activity Centre’
  3. A menu will open which gives you insight into your Watch History, Comment History, Search History and more. Tapping on ‘Watch History’ will take you through to a unique grid of videos that you have viewed on TikTok

NOTE: Any video that appears and that you scroll past on your ‘For You’ feed will appear in this grid, whether you watched 1 second or 10 seconds of the footage. If it popped up on your screen, then it is classed as a view and will be accessible via this ‘Watch History’ grid.

Your Watch History is accessible only to you.

How to See Who Has Viewed Your Posts

TikTok’s privacy settings are comprehensive, with different levels of privacy available for different users.

One of the most interesting privacy settings available relates to video and post views.

When you switch ‘Post Views’ on, you can see who has viewed your post over the past 7 days. In return, other users will also be able to see when you view their post – making ‘Post Views’ a two-way exchange of information.

The same is true of profile views, which you can only switch on and access if you are happy for your own profile visits to be recorded and relayed back to the account holder.

This is designed to add an extra layer of privacy and security for users, preventing users from being able to access information on who is visiting their profile and viewing their posts without the same data being passed on their own activity.

We hope this helps!

As outlined in this article, there are two levels of views that you may want to track on TikTok, the first being videos that you have viewed and want to revisit, and the second being views that link back to your own profile and posts. A combination of information from all sides will help you to refine your TikTok journey and produce content that appeals to the right audience.
