How to Fix CapCut Templates Not Showing

CapCut is the official video editor and maker for TikTok.

It is developed by Bytedance Pte. Ltd., the company that made TikTok.

It has video editing, text, stickers, filters, colors, music, and more.

In addition, you can add keyframe animation, slow-motion effects, chroma key, Picture-in-Picture (PIP), and stabilization.

Unfortunately, a lot of users are unable to use the templates on the app because they are not showing or working.

In this guide, you’ll learn why are CapCut templates not showing or not working and how to fix the feature.

Why is CapCut not showing templates?

CapCut Templates Not Showing

CapCut is not showing templates because the app is banned in your country/region.

Because the app is owned by Bytedance, it is banned along with TikTok in some countries.

Countries like India, Russia, and Indonesia might not be able to download the app.

Users can still access the app if they installed it before it was banned on the App Store/Google Play Store.

However, they won’t be able to access certain features on the app like “Templates”.

The templates page will say, “Templates will appear here” but there are no templates.

How to fix CapCut templates not showing

To fix CapCut templates not showing, you need to download a free VPN app on the App Store or Google Play Store.

After you’ve installed a VPN app, connect to a VPN where the app is not banned (e.g. Japan).

  1. Download a free VPN app.
  2. Connect to Japan or the Philippines.
  3. Force exit CapCut and reopen it.

The app is not banned in countries like Japan and the Philippines.

It’s also available in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Some free VPN apps are—VPN Fast – Secure VPN Proxy, VPN – Super Unlimited Proxy, and Proton VPN.

After you’ve connected to a free VPN, make sure to force exit CapCut and reopen it.

That way, the app will be able to detect that you’re in another country.

A VPN will mask your IP address and location, so you’ll be able to bypass restricted features on the app.
