The TikTok app is a popular selfie app with teens, but that doesn’t mean the company’s parents agree. In the recent past, the company has been accused of censoring and potentially banning content that its users thought was problematic. Now, the company needs your help to get its account unblocked so that it can continue to provide its users with the content they want to see.
If you’re one of the more than two billion people who use TikTok, you might remember a time when the company wouldn’t let you post videos of yourself without a lid. We’re not quite sure how the company’s views have changed, but if you’ve recently had a run-in with the company’s customer support team or received an in-app notification that’s content you’re not allowed to post on TikTok, you’re not the only one. Here’s what you need to know about getting your account unblocked.
How To Get Your TikTok Account Unbanned?
Here are the top few ways to get your TikTok account unblocked.
#1: Complete an appeal form.
If you know for sure that your account has been blocked for violating TikTok’s Terms of Service, then you should definitely complete the appeal form. You can find the link for this form at the bottom of your app’s settings page. The appeal form will ask you to provide some details about yourself including your name, age, gender, and email address so that you can get your account unbanned quickly!
#2: Create a new profile but with a different username.
Some users have reported that they were able to get their accounts unblocked easily by creating a new profile but with a different username. If this method doesn’t work for you or if your original username is already taken on TikTok, then don’t worry because there are other options such as getting in touch with TikTok support.
#3: Contact TikTok support.
If you’re unable to get your account unblocked by using the above methods, then you should contact TikTok support for help. There are two ways to get in touch with TikTok support – via email or via their live chat feature. If you choose to use the email option, then send an email to tiktok and make sure to include your full name, age, country/region of residence, and a short description of your situation in the email body. If you choose the live chat option, then simply visit tiktok-support-chat-bot on Telegram and follow the on-screen instructions from there.
#4: Ask friends on Facebook or Instagram to re-share your videos or images that were removed by TikTok’s moderators.
If you were banned from TikTok for violating their Terms of Service, then the only way to get unbanned is if TikTok’s moderators see that you are not violating the Terms of Service anymore. To do this, you need to ask your friends on Facebook or Instagram to re-share your videos and images on TikTok. If at least one of your friends re-shares your content, then you should be able to get unbanned from TikTok.
#5: Create a new account with a different email address and phone number.
If you’re unable to get your account unblocked by using any of the methods above, then creating a new account with a different email address and phone number might help. Make sure that all the information that you provide during the registration process is truthful so that you can avoid getting banned again!
#6: Sign up for an email newsletter on TikTok’s official website and verify it through Facebook or Instagram.
If none of the above methods work for you, then you may want to try this method which has worked for some users. Sign up for an email newsletter on TikTok’s official website and verify it through Facebook or Instagram. Once your email address has been verified, log out of the website and then log back in using the same email address that you used to sign up for the newsletter. Now go to your profile and tap on “Profile Settings” under your username in the top-right corner of the screen. From here, tap on “Privacy Settings” and then toggle off “Block Friends” so that all users can see your profile again. After this, go back to your Profile Settings page and tap on “Friend Requests” so that only people who have already added you as a friend can add you again.
#7: Create a new account with a different phone number but with the same email address.
If none of the above methods work for you, then you may want to try this method which has worked for some users. Create a new account with a different phone number but with the same email address. Once your account has been created, you should be able to log in from your old phone number and use the same email address that you used to sign up for the new account.
Why Is TikTok Banning Content?
1. Copyright Infringement:
If you upload something that is copyrighted material without permission – then there’s a good chance you’re going to get banned from TikTok. If you want to use something copyrighted – then make sure that you have permission from the owner first before uploading it onto your account or making a video using it.
2. Violence and Nudity:
TikTok has a strict policy against violence and nudity, so if you’re using either of these – then expect to get banned from the app. You can report inappropriate content or videos that may include graphic violence or nudity by tapping on the “Report” button next to the video you’re watching – and then choosing “Inappropriate Content/Violence/Nudity.” TikTok has a zero-tolerance policy towards this type of content, so it will always be removed as soon as possible.
3. Hate Speech:
If you post hate speech on your account, don’t be surprised if it gets deleted or your account gets banned from TikTok. The app doesn’t tolerate any kind of hate speech, so if you see someone else posting something like this – report them immediately and hit the “Report” button next to their username in order to have their account taken down.
4. Copyrighted Music:
If you post copyrighted music on your account, you’re going to get banned from TikTok. In order to avoid this, make sure that you use only the songs that you have permission to use.
If you’re spamming your friends with requests or posts and comments – then it’s likely that your account will be banned from TikTok. The app doesn’t tolerate any kind of spam and they want all users to have a positive experience while using their app, so if you see someone who is spamming other users – report them immediately and hit the “Report” button next to their username in order for them to be taken down from the app.
