If you frequently post content on a video-based social platform such as TikTok, keeping track of your followers and video views might become necessary.

Unfortunately, you can’t keep track of each user that views your video on TikTok. However, can see the number of views and profile visits. With those, you can figure out on your own the users that frequent your videos.

The details are to follow.

See Video Views

Even if you can’t inspect all the users who viewed your video, you can still keep track of your video views. If you want to go viral on TikTok, then you should rack up a great number of video views so that you can start trending on the ‘Explore’ section.

Thankfully, you can keep up with your video views easily via the app’s profile screen. Just follow these instructions:

  1. Launch the TikTok app.
  2. Tap the ‘Me’ icon at the bottom-right of the screen. You’ll reach the profile screen.

  3. Select the ‘Timeline’ icon (6 vertical lines) below the ‘Edit Profile’ button to go to the video screen.

If you’re unhappy with the number of views, you can employ certain tricks such as adding plenty of relevant hashtags and, of course, making your profile public (coming up later in the article).

How to See Who Viewed My Profile?

A brief look at who viewed your profile in the last 24 hours can offer some insight into who might’ve viewed your videos.

The same users that checked out your profile would’ve probably done the same for some of your videos. You may find among them some familiar faces, your friends, and perhaps even your crush. Let’s see how to pull this off:

  1. Launch the TikTok app.
  2. Tap the ‘Inbox’ button at the bottom bar. This is where you can see all your notifications.
    inbox
  3. Tap the “[user] and many others checked your profile yesterday” notification.

Here you can see a list of all TikTok users that viewed your profile. Most of them probably viewed some of your videos, too. So, if you noticed an uptick in views for some of your videos, the odds are that it was those users who watched them.

How Often Do Profile Views Refresh?

You can’t know exactly when and how often this notification update, but it’s believed to take about 24 hours. So, after checking your profile, the smart thing to do would be to leave it alone until the same time tomorrow.

You’re not going to miss new profile views and if some users frequently appear on this list after 24 hours, you’d know that you may have picked up a few secret fans and followers. These users are probably those who’ve been accumulating views on all your videos.

What’s Up If There’s No ‘Recent Profile Views’ Notification?

Some users reported that they couldn’t see the ‘Recent Profile Views’ notification. This can only mean two things. You should either reinstall the app as it may have run into some kind of glitch, or your profile is set to ‘private.’

If your account is private, you won’t be able to see this notification. This is how to set your account to public so that you can enable profile views:

  1. Launch the TikTok app.
  2. Tap the ‘Me’ icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
  3. Go to the ‘More’ icon (three vertical dots) at the top-right of the screen.
  4. Tap ‘Privacy and safety’ under the ‘Account’ section.
  5. Toggle off ‘Private account’ under the Discoverability section.
  6. Enable ‘Allow others to find me’ in the same section.
    allow others to find me

This will make your account visible to all TikTok users, who are free to share your videos and make them more popular.

Be Careful with Public Videos

Although having plenty of views is exciting and may feel awfully good, it’s always important to keep your content funny and safe. Posting inappropriate content may get your videos taken down and your profile banned. You may even get into legal trouble.

What’s your view on private TikTok profiles? Is yours public or private? Share your opinion in the comments section at the bottom of the page.
