While TikTok doesn't include a handy watch history feature, there are workarounds for seeing which TikTok videos you've watched.

TikTok doesn't really have a watch history feature. It's designed to keep memes coming hard and fast. Why go back when there are so many new videos to watch?

Here, we dive into how to find a lost TikTok video. A method can be run entirely from within the app; the other will take some time, but may be ideal for users who want to see TikTok's entire history in the form of a data request.



How to find a TikTok video you've watched

Finding the TikTok videos you've already seen is easy. All you have to do is use a simple search filter.

  • Go to the card Discover .
  • Press the icon Search in the upper right corner.
  • Enter your request.
  • Awards Search .
  • Tap the icon filters on the right side of the search bar.
  • Attiva Watched videos .
  • Awards Apply .

Any videos in your watch history that match your keyword or keyword phrase will be at the top of the list, followed by your search results as they usually appear.

TikTok filters can be used not only to filter search results based on view history - you can also search for liked videos or even add an upload cut-off date to further limit your pool.

Now you will be able to easily find anything you accidentally touched from.

How to see history on TikTok

What's the best way to see TikTok's entire video history? There is no useful function within the app. You can, however, request your full TikTok history as a request for personal data and find the data within.



It takes a couple of days, but this is the most comprehensive approach available to you for a truly comprehensive TikTok history view.

To request data from TikTok and see the entire TikTok viewing history, you can follow this simple data request process:

  • Press the three-line menu Settings and Privacy in the upper right corner.
  • Select Privacy .
  • Toccata Download your data .
  • Choose a file TXT or a file JSON .
  • Tap the button Request data down.

After doing that, you can check your pending data request in the nearby tab Download Data , which you can access at the top of this page.


In no more than four days, you will be able to download everything associated with your account, including your TikTok viewing history. Once your request has been approved, you will need to verify your identity before the ZIP file can truly be yours.
