Another problem seems to have hit TikTok in 2022 as users got banned from their accounts without warning.
Many are now having trouble accessing their profiles and no one really knows what caused the problem. And it seems like no effort sorting it out is of any use.
TikTok has not addressed the issue at the time of writing. But users are now seriously concerned that this could be due to their accounts being either banned or hacked.
TikTok users cannot access their profiles
Many TikTok users who cannot unblock their accounts have taken to Twitter to draw more attention to the issue.
They are frustrated at being locked out of their own accounts and there is little they can do on their part to resolve what appears to be a very irritating issue.
Some have pointed out that the platform asks them to enter their birthday, as we do at the time of signup.
Meanwhile, some users are wondering if they accidentally violated TikTok’s policies, which may have resulted in their account being banned.
Why your account might be banned
There is more than one possible reason for your TikTok account to get banned.
This usually happens when you forget your password or login details.
In some cases, a specific account may be banned or banned if the user has violated the platform’s policies. Posting inappropriate content, using handles that violate the platform’s rules, or even spamming often results in a ban.
There are also cases where one’s account gets banned if the app’s terms and services are not strictly followed. This may involve using different IP addresses or bots to increase views.
You won’t know the reason for your account suspension unless you are notified by the app itself.
In the meantime, you could try the usual troubleshooting steps for a possible solution.
- Check the internet connection
- Clear the app’s cache
- Update the app to the latest version
- Contact TikTok Support directly if the issue persists.
Users are not happy
This is how some TikTok users have reacted to having their accounts banned without their knowledge.
“Okay, my TikTok account is banned, what should I do?! I can’t even log in. I hope I don’t get hacked again.” tweeted a concerned user.
Other asked: “I think I got banned on TikTok? All videos are gone. Profile locked to private. Can’t follow or comment on others… wtf”
“My TikTok account was suspended and they didn’t say why. I did not violate any of the Terms of Service (I only posted piano videos). Is there a way to unlock it?” read another tweet.
