How to See Who Viewed Your TikTok Profile

As of Jan 2022, TikTok has brought back the option to see who viewed your profile.

The option is called “profile view history” where you can see who viewed your profile in the last 30 days.

TikTok used to have this feature back in 2020 where you’ll receive notifications on who visited your profile.

They later removed it due to privacy concerns.

With the new “profile view history”, users get to opt-in or opt-out of it.

This gives users more control over their privacy.

That said, popular social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram do not show who viewed your profile.

Currently, TikTok is the only platform that does this.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to see who viewed your TikTok profile and if people can tell that you’ve seen their TikTok profile.

Can you see who viewed your TikTok profile?

As of early 2022, you can see who viewed your TikTok profile if you turned on the “profile view history” option.

The option allows you to see who viewed your TikTok profile in the last 30 days.

If you turn it on, others will be able to see that you’ve viewed their profile as well.

However, if you turn it off, others will not be able to see that you’ve viewed their profile.

The “profile view history” option was introduced in early 2022.

If you don’t have it, it’s most likely because it’s not rolled out to you yet.

You can try updating TikTok on the App Store or Google Play Store to see if you have it.

That said, not everyone has the feature because TikTok is still testing it.

How to see who viewed your TikTok profile

To see who viewed your TikTok profile, you need to turn on the “profile view history” option.

After you’ve turned it on, you’ll be able to see who viewed your profile in the last 30 days.

Other people who’ve turned on the “profile view history” option will also be able to see that you’ve viewed their profile.

The option is similar to “Last Seen” on WhatsApp.

To see when another person is last online, both you and the person need to have “Last Seen” set to “Everyone”.

If one of you set your “Last Seen” to “Nobody”, you won’t be able to see when was each other online.

You can turn off the “profile view history” option at any time.

Here’s how to see who viewed your TikTok profile.

1. Tap on the eye icon

The first step is to open TikTok and log in to your account if you haven’t already.

After you’ve opened TikTok, you need to navigate to your profile.

Tap on the profile icon on the bottom navigation bar to do so.

Once you’re on your TikTok profile, you’ll see an eye icon.

Tap on the eye icon at the top of your profile.

If you don’t see it, it means that the “profile view history” option is not rolled out to you yet.

If that’s the case, you need to either update the TikTok app or wait until it’s released to you.

2. Turn on your profile view history

After you’ve tapped on the eye icon, you’ll land on the “Profile views” page.

The page contains information about the “profile view history” option.

Here is what the “profile view history” option does:

  • Others can see that you viewed their profiles in the past 30 days.
  • Only you can see who viewed your profile.
  • Only viewers who turned on their profile view history and viewed your profile in the past 30 days will be shown.
  • You can turn this off at any time.

As mentioned on the page, others will only be able to see that you viewed their TikTok profile if you’ve turned on your profile view history.

If you have it disabled, they won’t be able to see that you viewed their TikTok profile.

Tap on “Turn on” to turn on your profile views history.

3. See who viewed your TikTok profile

After you’ve turned on your profile view history, you’ll land on the “Profile views” page.

Now, you’ll see a list of people who viewed your profile in the past 30 days.

Keep in mind that only you can see who viewed your TikTok profile.

In addition, only people who’ve turned on their profile views history will be shown on the page.

You’ve successfully learned how to see who viewed your TikTok profile!

If you don’t want to let others know that you’ve viewed their profile, you can turn off your profile view history at any time.

To do so, navigate to your profile, tap on the eye icon, tap on the gear icon, and tap on the switch.

Can people tell that I’ve seen their TikTok profile?

People can only tell that you’ve seen their TikTok profile if you and the person enabled the “profile views history” option.

The “profile views history” option allows you to see who viewed your TikTok profile in the last 30 days.

However, you and the person needs to turn the option on.

Let’s say that you and the person enabled the “profile views history” option.

If so, both of you will be able to see who viewed their TikTok profile.

In other words, if you viewed the person’s TikTok profile, they’ll know of it.

However, if you or the person didn’t enable the “profile views history” option, the person will not be able to see that you’ve viewed their profile.

The option is similar to “Last Seen” on WhatsApp where both you and the person need to set it to “Everyone”.

If you and the person set the “Last Seen” option to “Everyone”, both of you will be able to see when each other was last online on WhatsApp.

The “profile views history” option on TikTok has the same logic.

Conclusion

The “profile views history” option is introduced in early 2022.

If you have it, you’ll see an eye icon on your profile.

If you don’t have it, you need to wait until the option is rolled out to you.

You can also try updating TikTok on the App Store or Google Play Store.

If you need more help, you can visit the TikTok Help Center or contact TikTok.
