Reasons Your TikTok Account Can Be Banned

If your TikTok account is banned, then you will know when you sign on to the platform because of the banner on the screen. An account is banned when it repeatedly violates the Community Guidelines found in the platform's question and answer section. There is no specific number of violations that an account can have before the account is banned.

TikTok Community Guidelines

As is with other platforms, TikTok uses an algorithm that automatically detects prohibited content. If anything goes past this filter, TikTok’s Safety Team will take care of it and flag the content or concerned user as well.

These are the community guidelines that all members must follow:

  • Safety, authenticity, diversity and inclusion are priorities.
  • Content must be original and authentic.
  • No fake engagement, misleading, or impersonating another person.
  • No illegal activity, including gambling, guns, and drugs.
  • Abuse, harm, or endangerment of minors is prohibited.
  • No dangerous acts or challenges.
  • No trademark or copyright infringement.
  • No violent or graphic content or content that incites violence.
  • Zero tolerance policy on discrimination, hate speech, or racial slurs.
  • Nudity and sexual content are prohibited.
  • Bullying, shaming, intimidating, or insulting content.
  • Encouraging or normalizing suicide, eating disorders, or self-harm is prohibited.

Steps to Take to Appeal a Banned TikTok Account

Any system can commit an error when filtering content as well as suspending an account. If you think your TikTok account has been banned unfairly, you can by following these steps.

  1. When you log into your account there will be a banner at the top of your page.
  2. Click on the banner and on the next screen you will be given the option to appeal your account ban.
  3. You will click the link to appeal and then follow the on-screen prompts to complete the appeal process.

Unfairly Banned TikTok Account

There is so much content uploaded on TikTok that it is nearly impossible for a person to check every piece before it is available on the platform. That is why the platform utilizes a combination of technology and human moderation. This allows all content to be scanned before it is available to the community. The technology used is good but it is not fool-proof and that is why human moderation is used as well.

Shadowbanned TikTok Accounts

TikTok also uses a practice called shadowbanning. The platform does not notify you if you are shadowbanned, but you will find there is not a follower count on your content. A shadowbanned account will stop receiving views, likes, and followers.

Reasons an Account Can Be Shadowbanned

Users who post excessively, violate the Community Guidelines, or the Terms of Service are at risk of being shadowbanned. Other reasons include using bots, copyright infringement, and posting prohibited content. A shadowbanned account will usually be unbanned after a period of time ranging from 24 hours up to two weeks. Some accounts will be shadowbanned indefinitely.

Removing TikTok Account Shadowban

Suggestions for removing an account shadowban include clearing the cache in the app and uninstalling, then reinstalling. If this is not successful, you can try to contact Customer Service via email or you can wait it out.
