If you click on your TikTok app icon as normal and suddenly find that the app has logged you out, you might be left wondering why – and what you can do about it.

While being logged out automatically is not the end of the world, it can be annoying when you want to quickly browse and enjoy a few TikTok videos in a work break or spare 5 minutes.

It may also be a sign that someone has tried to hack your account – which is of course more serious and needs to be rectified.

Here are the main reasons why TikTok may have logged you out of your account – and what to do about it…

You’ve Removed an Active Device

When you try to remove an active device from your TikTok login, TikTok will often log you out of your account on all devices.

This is a safety precaution, as removing an active device can be a sign that an account is being hacked.

If you have removed the device yourself then you can log back into your account with no worries. But if you haven’t, it’s important to change your password immediately and increase the security around your account log in and access.

You’re Logging in From an Unexpected Location

This is another point that has to do with safety.

If, for example, you go on holiday and suddenly try to access your TikTok account from an entirely new location, you may find that the app logs you out as a precaution.

The chances are that you can log back in without issue. However, this obstacle is in place to prevent hackers from accessing your account if your phone is stolen.

There’s an Issue at TikTok Hq

Even major social media apps like TikTok face issues on occasion, with a glitch in the system sometimes logging users out and forcing them to log back in.

If you find that you are continually unable to log into your account, then it’s worth waiting and trying to find out if others are facing the same issue.

We hope this helps you to understand a little more about TikTok and why the app may suddenly log you out of your account. Happy browsing!
