Surely it has happened to all of us that we came across a video that we loved and accidentally pressed the wrong button and ended up losing it. But don’t worry, there is a way watch the TikTok watch history and find those videos that you like so much. Although we must clarify that it is not an obvious process, although it is simple.
View TikTok Watch History on iOS and Android
This guide will be useful for both iOS and Android, since the version of TikTok for both devices is very similar. After requesting our data from TikTok, we will have to wait up to 24 hours.
The first thing we will have to do is open the TikTok app and go to our profile.
Here we are going to press on the three lines that are in the upper right corner. A new menu will appear at the bottom where we will have to choose Settings and privacy.
In this new window, we will click on Privacy.
Next, click on Personalization and data.
Now let’s Download your data.
At the bottom, we select Request data.
We will see a message telling us that our request was received and we will be able to see the current status of this process in the Download data tab. We will have to select Download to be able to save all our data once TikTok finishes processing everything.
After downloading the file, we will have to access it through the Files application that we have on our mobile device. If we cannot do it over the phone, we will have to send it to us by email and open it on a computer. Once opened, we will see all the videos that we have seen to date, with the link to each one.
Download history from a PC or Mac
Doing it directly from a PC is the easiest way to achieve it. The process will be the same for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chromebook.
We open our favorite web browser and go to the TikTok official website.
Here we will have to press on our profile icon that is in the upper right part and in the menu we will choose Settings.
From the Configuration section, we will click on Data found in Privacy.
Here we will have to make sure that TXT is selected in the Select file format section, then we will click on Request data.
Next, we are going to have to click on the Download data tab to review how the data collection process is going.
When it finishes processing and this can take time depending on the size of our history, so be very patient. We will have to download and unzip them.
Now we are going to have to find the TXT file View navigation that has all the videos we have seen on TikTok with a URL so that we can visit them again.
