Can Other People See Who Viewed Their TikTok Videos?

Key Takeaways
  • TikTok counts a view as soon as a video appears on your screen, regardless of how long you watch it. Views can be accumulated either from the feed or by visiting a profile.
  • TikTok does not provide a feature for creators to see the specific profiles of users who viewed their videos. You can only see who liked or commented on your video.
  • TikTok has a Profile View feature that lets users see who visited their profile, but this requires both the profile owner and the visitor to have this feature enabled.

TikTok readily allows creators and users to see the number of views a video gets. However, you might wonder, can I see the profiles of users who have viewed a TikTok video? In this article, let’s look at the answer to this question and explore the method if any of accomplishing this.

So, without further ado, let’s dive straight into it.

How Do TikTok Views Work?

So, what exactly is getting a single view on a TikTok video? Just like any other platform, when an individual views a video, the view counter gets incremented. Now there are two ways through which you can view a video.

  1. The video appears in your feed, and you watch it there while scrolling down.
  2. You search for an account and see the video in the profile.

The time duration for which a video is viewed doesn’t matter. Even if you keep scrolling and do not stop to watch the video, it still registers as a view.
