TikTok Guide 101: How to Find a TikTok Video[2024]

How to Find a TikTok Video

You are immediately faced with an unending line of videos when you open TikTok. This For You page is wonderful for finding new things, but what if you’re looking for something not covered by the algorithm?




The search page is used for that purpose.








The search function on TikTok’s app allows you to look for other users, particular videos, topics, and more.




Never again lose a TikTok video!





Let’s face it, we have all witnessed a funny video vanish when you unintentionally refreshed the “For You Page” on TikTok, but those times are now gone.

Now, you’ll be able to find anything that you’ve accidentally tapped away from with ease.

Keeping track of everything you’ve viewed while using TikTok is one of the finest starting recommendations.







There is a caveat, though: this feature is only available to iOS users.

How to search on TikTok

By opening the app and selecting Discover at the bottom of the screen, you may access TikTok’s search page.





The search bar and QR scanner are located at the top of the search results page.






The most popular hashtags, effects, and noises on TikTok at the moment are listed below it, followed by an advertisement carousel.







To immediately search for or use any of these, tap it.





To utilize the search bar, tap it and start typing.







You can do a word or phrase search or look up users or topics.






The most popular results will show up as you type.







There is no method to filter searches, and the most popular results are always given priority.

This implies that it may be difficult to discover a more elusive video.






There is just one practical method for simplifying TikTok searches.








You can search #duet or #stitch and the person’s username if you know their username and the video you want was submitted as a Duet or Stitch video.






The likelihood that the video you’re looking for will surface increases as a result.






How to View Your TikTok Watch History on iOS

To access your watch history on your iPhone on iPad:




1. Open TikTok and head to the Profile tab.



2. Press the three-line hamburger menu in the top-right corner.



3. Select Settings and privacy.




4. Tap Watch history under the Content and activity heading.



Everything you viewed over the previous seven days is visible from here.





Simply hit the gear icon in the top-right corner and choose clear history to erase your watch history.






How to View Your TikTok Watch History on Android

There is no useful function within the Android app to view your watch history, unlike on iOS.





However, you can ask for your entire TikTok timeline as personal data and access the information there.




This is the most thorough method available to you for a genuinely comprehensive TikTok history view, albeit it does take a few days.



To do this:



1. Open TikTok and head to the Profile tab.

You’ll be able to download anything related to your account, including your TikTok watch history, in no more than four days.






The ZIP file won’t actually belong to you until you can prove your identity after your request has been approved.




When it’s prepared, a file titled Video Browsing History should be included in the ZIP folder; naturally, that’s the one you need.





The site allows you to search through everything you’ve already viewed, making it easy to find something you may have forgotten about.





The most recent look into your TikTok video history is not provided by this method.






It’s still the finest method to remember anything that is genuinely
