Views and shares are on the video

What to Know

  • Check more details by tapping Profile > Creator Tools > Analytics to learn more about sharing.
  • It's not possible to see individual profiles that have shared your videos.

This article explains how to find how how many times a TikTok has been shared and also looks at what to do if you can't share your TikToks with others.

Can You See Who Shared Your TikTok?

No, you can't see who specifically has shared your TikTok. In the past, users needed to have a TikTok Pro account to view who shared their TikTok. Now, however, that metric has gone away. You can now only check to see how well a TikTok video is performing.

It's useful to see the number of shares your video has as a high ratio of shares/views and likes/views mean your videos are being viewed by more people than before. It's a good sign of slowly becoming viral.

  1. Open TikTok and tap Profile.

  2. Tap the video you want to check.

  3. Look at the number next to the arrow at the bottom of the screen to show who has shared your video.

Why Can't I See Who Has Shared My TikTok?

Sharing is a key part of TikTok but there are some limitations. It's not possible to see the profiles of the people who have shared your video due to privacy concerns. Instead, you can only see how many people have shared your video.

How to See the Number of Shares via Analytics

If you'd prefer to see more statistics about your TikToks, it's possible to do so via Analytics. Here's what to do.
