How to check the history of videos watched on TikTok

TikTok (Android | iOS | Web) is a social network that offers a series of tools and resources for its users to produce and publish short videos. Despite this, the platform does not offer a direct option that allows you to consult a history of watched videos.

How to check the history of videos watched on TikTok

Accessing the Liked Videos tab

Although this option will not display all the videos you’ve watched, this is a method that will display, within the app itself, most of them.

Step 1: Open the TikTok app and access the “Profile” tab in the bottom menu.

step 2: Tap the “Heart” icon to access the tab with the history of liked videos.

Downloading your information stored by TikTok

If what you are looking for is not in the list of liked videos, the alternative is to ask TikTok to download all your information stored by the social network, including the videos you have watched.

Step 1: To do this, go to the “Profile” tab in the lower menu and tap on the “Three lines” in the upper right corner.

step 2: then select “Privacy”.

step 3: Tap “Personalization & Data”.

step 4: click on “Download your data”.

step 5: select the option “TXT” to download a text file or “JSON” to download a JavaScript file. To finish this step, click on “Request data”. Remember that TikTok has up to four days to make the file available.

step 6: after this period, access the same tab as in the previous step, tap on “Download data” and click on “Download”. Also remember that after four days the file will no longer be downloadable.

Step 7: you will be redirected to a web page, so log in with your account and make the necessary validations to download the .zip file with the data.

step 8: unzip it and open the “Video Browsing” file, which has the list of all the videos you’ve watched on TikTok, as well as the URL of each one, available.
