Sharing is caring!

TikTok has recently taken its community guidelines very seriously. As the social media platform grows, TikTok users must abide by the terms of service & privacy policy. If your TikTok account was recently marked as spam, you could reclaim that banned TikTok account. 

If you are an avid TikTok user, you already know the sheer number of TikTok accounts blocked in recent times. 

Unlike other social media sites, like Facebook & Instagram, TikTok, a popular short-form video platform, does not inform the users why their account is getting banned. 

Here is a fun fact for you, did you know last month, there were a total of 837 million active users on the platform. Due to the recent popularity of the platform, TikTok’s parent company has reached a Billion dollar valuation. 

Currently, Charli D’Amelio is the most followed individual on TikTok, with a whopping 130.9 million followers & millions of daily video views.

Why is my TikTok account banned?

What does every popular Social Media site have in common? They allow users to share any content with the world. They can share video content, images, or simple text posts. 

Social Media has given birth to a new type of job – Content Management. It has given birth to other jobs such as Social Media Account Manager. The primary responsibility of such managers is to maintain the social media handles, interact with the audience, and share posts. These are considered content moderation jobs. 

On the other hand, all major social media sites have powerful AI and even a big team of experts working to check the content shared on the platform. 

The AI can quickly identify TikTok videos or content that breaches the sites’ terms of use and TikTok’s community guidelines. 

Sites such as Facebook and Instagram rely mainly on a team of content managers. On the other hand, sites like TikTok rely mostly on AI. This makes sense, as thousands of TikTok videos are uploaded on the platform every minute.

There are several reasons why you might get banned on TikTok. 

At a glance, here are the major reasons.

· You are under the age of 13.

· Landing a significant number of followers in a short time.

· Sexual content.

· Spam comments.

How long does TikTok ban your account?

For how long your TikTok account is banned depends on the type of ban imposed on your account. 

· Shadowban.

· Permanent Ban.

· Temporary Ban.

Temporary Ban

Temporary Ban refers to an imposed restriction on a TikTok account. 

This mostly happens if you post spam content on the platform. 

Activities that are considered spam include – posting too many TikTok videos in a short time and following too many TikTok accounts.

Shadow ban

You can still upload videos using your banned TikTok account when this happens. 

However, your videos will not be featured on any list or boosted via the native TikTok algorithm.

 Furthermore, when your TikTok account gets Shadowbanned, TikTok might remove the hashtags from your TikTok videos. 

The duration of a TikTok shadow ban is 14 days (Two Weeks). During these 14 days, you can still post videos on the platform, but do not expect to get as many views as you used to earlier. 

How will you know if your TikTok account is under Shadowban? 

A clear indicator of this is if you start to receive more drop-in views. Also, if you can’t find your video using the associated hashtags, know that you are under shadowban on TikTok.
