Who doesn’t like TikTok? However if you find yourself caught up in a situation where in your account has been banned, then you will definitely want to read this guide on how to get your account unbanned from TikTok.

Why was i banned from TikTok?

There could be many reasons why your account could have been banned in Tiktok. Tiktok uses  highly advanced algorithms to detect any violations of its policies -just like any other major social media platform for example Instagram or Twitter or Facebook-And hence if you have not done anything wrong it’s quite difficult to pinpoint exactly why your account has been banned, 

A user can report your video for a number of reasons, whether it be fraud, hate speech, graphic or adult content, cruelty towards animals or bullying.

Generally, after multiple reports have been made against a particular video, TikTok takes down the video for review. If it passes their analysis, then the video is restored. However if their internal department flags it,then you get notified and the video gets taken down. 

TikTok does give you an opportunity to appeal against this, if you feel that the strike against your account was not justified.

It’s only after you get multiple strikes, i.e. multiple videos get taken down, that the company would flag your account and put you on a temporary or permanent ban depending on how serious the infringement is.

As mentioned, you can generally appeal against the video takedown notification, however you must do it as soon as possible as some users have reported being unable to appeal after a certain amount of time has passed.

If you are unable to appeal against the notification that you had received or your account gets banned, there are a couple of steps that are available to you before you completely write of your account.

Do ensure that you have read TikTok’s Community Guidelines.

If you are aware of where exactly you went wrong then the chances of your account getting restored drastically increase.
