Why Are All My Videos Gone on TikTok?
Have you ever suddenly logged in to your TikTok account, and noticed that all of your videos are gone?
That shouldn’t happen! There have been many complaints regarding this bug on TikTok - users are seeing their videos disappear from one moment to another.
If this has happened to you, or to your friends, it’s time to figure out what is happening.
In today’s post on our site, we’ll talk to you about the following:
- Why are all my videos gone on TikTok?;
- How to fix deleted videos on TikTok issues;
- Best TikTok fixes to recover your videos in no time.
Why Are All My Videos Gone On TikTok?
When a TikTok video is not showing up, there are different reasons that might be creating this problem.
In this case, if you are sure that you did not accidentally delete the TikTok video, then this problem is happening due to the following reasons:
- It’s just a glitch: many users that have reported their videos disappeared have later recovered their videos by themselves. Wait a few hours - you might be facing just a little bug, and that’s it;
- Internet connection problems: are you sure that your Wi-Fi connection is working? Having an unstable Internet connection will affect not only TikTok, but other social media platforms as well, such as Twitter and Facebook;
- Hardware issues: perhaps there’s something wrong with your iPhone or Android Phone. Maybe the SD Card ran out of memory, or your device is no longer able to support TikTok. This problem has happened to other users in the past as well.
How to Fix All My Videos Gone On TikTok Issue
Since this same problem has affected numerous users on TikTok, there are five things that you can do if you are sure that the videos weren’t accidentally deleted from your TikTok profile.
So, let’s make each one of your posted videos and clips appear on your profile again by following the process presented by each solution!
Fix #1: Restart the TikTok App
First of all, apps bug all the time, and TikTok is no exception.
Force-closing the app on your phone should do the trick, whether you have an iPhone or an Android device.
Either way, logging out from your account and logging back in can also help you recover your supposedly deleted TikTok videos.
Fix #2: Change Your Network Settings
If your WiFi is not working, then turn it off, and turn on mobile data instead.
Your mobile device needs to have a stable connection, so the TikTok app loads everything properly, including your TikTok video.
So, if you can’t see your latest or first video, then make sure that your mobile data or WiFi is working on your phone - otherwise, using TikTok will become impossible.
Posted comments and other clips won’t load as well.
Fix #3: Check TikTok Servers
Perhaps you can’t see your supposedly deleted videos on TikTok because the TikTok server is having an outage, which is clearly affecting users.
This will prevent you and other users from checking liked videos, saved videos, posted clips, uploaded content, posting comments, any direct message, and more.
On top of that, you won’t be able to see who shared your TikTok if the servers are down.
In this case, you can check the TikTok server status on Downdetector.
They also post information regarding the platform’s status on Twitter, which you can check on desktop or mobile.
All in all, if the server lost connection to the TikTok app, and you can’t properly use your account on your device, then just wait - visit DownDetector, and wait for TikTok servers to be restored.
Fix #4: Clear Cache On TikTok
Perhaps TikTok videos are not loading because there’s a large grid of cached files and data messing up with your Android or iOS phone.
In that case, deleting TikTok cache data will help you get rid of small bugs that might be affecting your phone.
To clear data on both Android and iOS devices, do the following:
- Log in to the TikTok app and go to your account page by tapping on your PFP at the lower right corner of the screen;
- Then, at the upper right corner of the screen, tap on the Settings icon;
- Open Settings and Privacy, and scroll down to the Cache and Cellular Data option;
- Tap “Clear Cache,” and all the cached files will be deleted.
Fix #5: Delete and Reinstall TikTok
At last, if you still can’t recover deleted videos on TikTok after deleting the TikTok cache, then it is time to entirely delete the TikTok app from your iPhone or Android.
Long-tap the TikTok app icon, and remove the app.
Android users can later download it on the Google Play Store, whereas iOS users can download it on the Apple App Store.
Worry not - your data won’t be lost. This will reset every major bug that your mobile device might be facing.
How to Recover Deleted Videos On TikTok
So, what if you accidentally deleted TikTok videos? In that case, there are three ways to recover deleted videos on TikTok, but to be fair, there’s not much you can do here.
1. Add Them to Favorite or Liked TikTok Videos
A great way to save TikTok videos on the app is by marking them as favorite videos or liked videos.
These videos won’t ever go away, unless the creator of the video manually gets them deleted (or if TikTok deletes the videos by themselves).
2. Get a Backup of Deleted TikTok Videos
The good thing about TikTok is that you can save videos that you find on the app directly to your phone’s storage.
Therefore, save as many videos to your internal storage as you can - this will allow you to have a video backup in case things go wrong in the future.
For instance, if you get banned, you can recover every video you have posted if you download them externally. Learn how many reports you need to be banned on TikTok here.
3. Use a Third-Party Recovery App
There are many different third-party apps that claim to help you recover each deleted video on the app.
It is worth noting that these apps are not official at all, so you might compromise privacy when you use them.
Nevertheless, many users have claimed that these applications work, so perform your own research and go for it.
That’s all for now! We hope you can fix your TikTok problems with this guide. Get more useful TikTok information here, at GrowFollowing.
