How to see your watch history in TikTok

TikTok has become an extremely popular video-making app. Its main advantage is that you can convey enough information in a short video to make it interesting to the person watching your video. The app has a built-in video editor that makes it easier and faster to edit your creative video.

If you watch TickTock regularly, you’ve probably found some interesting video and wanted to save it or like it. In general, you’d like to make it memorable in your viewing history. But what do you do if you accidentally refresh your feed or swipe and lose that video? So, here is how to see your watch history in TikTok.

How to check your TikTok watch history

Unfortunately, TikTok does not have a “Watch History” button. However, there is a way to access your history. You can request a data file from TikTok. This file contains information related to your TikTok account, such as your bio, comment history, list of followers, login history, likes list, settings, etc. It also contains a list of the videos you’ve watched and the “Video Browsing History” list.

If you want to check your TikTok watch history on your smartphone, you have to follow these steps:

  • First of all, open the TikTok app on your smartphone.
  • Sign in to your account and navigate to your profile.
  • Then, tap on the “three lines” icon at the upper right corner of the screen.
  • After that, select “Privacy” and tap “Personalization and data”.
  • Select “Download your data” and tap “Request data”.

Once you have completed these steps, you will receive confirmation that the file has been requested, and you will go to the “Download data” tab. Here you can see the status of your request. At the moment it says “Pending”, which means that TikTok is processing your request. You will need to wait approximately 24 hours before approval.

Finally, when the file will be ready, the status of your request will be changed on “Download” instead of “Pending”.
