TikTokers are able to easily see how many people have watched, liked, and engaged with their posts — but can they see who exactly has viewed their videos? Here’s everything you need to know.

While posting on TikTok gives creators the opportunity to share their work or funny moments with the world, with a good chance of going viral, sometimes they are left wondering who exactly has been watching their videos.

It’s easier to see who has liked and commented on your post, but beyond that, people are left curious about who’s been checking out their content.

It can also go the other way around, with many casual TikTok scrollers wondering if creators will be able to tell if they’ve seen their post.

But the platform doesn’t make all statistics readily available, often due to privacy reasons, which can make it hard to know what information is available at first glance.

Can you see who viewed your TikTok video?

No, TikTok currently does not have a feature that allows creators to see who exactly has viewed one of their videos. They are able to see how many people have watched their video by looking at the thumbnail on their profile page, but it is not possible to see the usernames of individual users.

If you want to get a slightly more detailed look at the views on your videos and your account overall, you can access analytics by switching your account to a Business Account. However, this will still not enable you to see exactly who has viewed your video.

This means you won’t be able to check if a particular person or account has watched one of your TikToks, but it also means that others won’t know if you’ve watched theirs.

Can you see who viewed your profile on TikTok?

In 2022, TikTok brought back the profile views feature, which you can opt into if you want to see some of the people looking at your profile. You can turn on the feature in your Privacy settings through your profile.

After you’ve done that, you’ll be able to see who (out of the users who also have the feature turned on) has visited your profile in the last 30 days.
