Users are reporting that the popular short-form video app TikTok is down, with the app not loading for some on September 9.

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.

On September 8 and 9, many users took to social media to reveal that they were having problems accessing the app.

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 videos aren’t loading altogether for them. Some have also reported that comments aren’t loading, and that they are receiving a ‘no internet connection’ error.

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

Although the issues appear to lie with TikTok due to the widespread nature of the outages, if you want to make sure the particular problems you are having with the app aren’t on your end, ensure that your TikTok app and device are updated to the latest versions, and that you are properly connected to the internet.

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.
