Users are reporting that the popular short-form video app TikTok is down, with the app not loading for some on March 23. 

Short-form video app TikTok is many people’s go-to social media app, but with more and more users joining by the day, it is natural for there to be more server issues and glitches.

According to Down Detector, there have been over 1,000 reports of problems with the app on March 23, with many users taking to social media to relay their struggles accessing the platform.

TikTok is increasingly becoming one of the most used social media apps.

The issues appear to be affecting many across the globe, though the severity of the problems currently seems to vary. While some find that the app is fully operational, others have reported that upon trying to use the app, they are met with an error.


Some users have reported that videos simply won’t load on their For You Page, or that they stop after a certain point.

While some have said they are now back online and that the app is working fine again, others are continuing to experience issues.

TikTok has yet to comment on the connectivity issues via their official channels, but with many finding that they’re able to access the app fine now, it looks like it won’t be long until the issue is fixed for everybody else.
