Issues faced by Users

TikTok is experiencing a major glitch in the UK where users on the app have no followers or visible username, while video view counts have been reset to zero.

The “For You” tab, the ‘homepage’ of TikTok, is also behaving unexpectedly – with users reporting seeing the same video appear multiple times when TikTok’s algorithm should show a wide variety of content.

TikTok official Support account tweets:

“The TikTok app is currently experiencing some issues, which our team is working quickly to address. Thank you for your patience!”

This is not the first time that TikTok users have seen such problems. Last time, users face a similar issue, with follower and following numbers reset to zero on 3 May.

The issues continued for three hours before the company was able to fix the problem and regain normal functionality.
