Why You Are Banned from TikTok Live and How to Appeal Now

TikTok allows its users to stream themselves live and communicate with others once they've hit 1,000 followers. Just because you're approved to go live once, however, does not mean you can continue to do so. The company has the right to ban you if you go against their community standards.

If you were and hope to appeal the decision, leave it to DoNotPay to help you handle it. We'll pen a letter requesting you be unbanned and express your desire to rectify the situation and only exhibit proper behavior from here on out. DoNotPay will assist you with bans on any account.

Why Might TikTok Ban Someone From Going Live?

TikTok has a set of community standards. If you go against these standards while you're live on the app, the company has no choice but to ban you from using this service. They want to keep their entire community of users safe and protected.

If you were , you may have done one of the following acts:

  1. Exhibiting harmful behavior
  2. Using foul language
  3. Making derogatory or hateful remarks against someone's identity
  4. Showing nudity or graphic content
  5. Engaging in violent behavior
  6. Using drugs or alcohol

You must also not encourage your followers or viewers to exhibit these behaviors. People have been for encouraging their followers to engage in harmful behavior or hurt others.

It's also possible to get banned if you appear younger than what your account says. Only users above the age of 16 are allowed to go live. Minors must not be presented on live videos alone, as it could prove dangerous. You will need to send in proof of a photo ID if the company mistakenly bans you for being underage when you are not.

Difference Between a Temporary Ban and Permanent Ban

TikTok issues two types of bans.

  1. A temporary ban only lasts for a duration. They may choose to ban you from going live for just 24 hours or prevent you from streaming for a week or more. It's all at their discretion and depends on the type of violation.
  2. A permanent ban is often issued when you've made a serious offense against the community guidelines or have repeatedly been given temporary bans already. A permanent ban is much more difficult to appeal, but you can still let DoNotPay attempt to fight the ban for you in a respectful way.

Will Being Banned on Live Cause Me to Lose My Account?

No, being banned from TikTok live does not automatically lose you access to your overall TikTok account. You are just not permitted at the time to live stream, but you can continue to post videos and watch content in most circumstances. A full account ban is possible, but only after you make violations within other areas of the app.

However, you could find your account suspended altogether if you made numerous violations during your live or exhibited violent or harmful behavior to yourself or others.
