What is TikTok watch history?
TikTok Watch History is the collection of videos you watched on TikTok. In the “For You” tab, which is the video feed, when you scroll, watch and like the video, it’s all saved in the viewing history section of your account.
Also, if you open someone’s profile on TikTok and watch any video, it is saved in your history. However, only the record of the last 7 days will be saved in the viewing history; based on date and time, from newest to oldest. No more than the last 7 days.
Besides, it is also useful when you want to find any video that you watched 2 days ago and forgot to save or pin it. At that time, TikTok watch history will work for you.
There are some requirements for the TikTok watch history section, such as the app needs to be updated, and more importantly, the “Watch History feature” needs to be enabled; otherwise the viewing history would not be saved. Then, meet the requirements outlined to have the watch history.
Let’s take a closer look at these two requirements:
1. You should update the TikTok app:
“Viewing History” feature was added recently. It wasn’t before. Therefore, for this reason, it is suggested that the TikTok application be updated. You have to update your app frequently to enjoy all the new advances in features.
However, to enjoy the “viewing history” feature, first go to “Play Store” or “App Store” and search for TikTok app and check if there is an update available or not. If there is, update the app. Once done, update the app and go directly to “Account Settings” to enable the “View History” option.
2. History display must be enabled:
The first requirement is that the TikTok app is up to date and the second requirement is that the “View History” option is enabled. After updating the app, the newly added Play History option will be updated in the app.
You need to go to the account settings list and enable the history option. To do that, follow the steps:
🔴 Steps to follow:
Step 1: Open the TikTok app and on the main screen towards the bottom right corner is “Me”. Tap it and go to the “Profile” page.
Step 2: On the profile page, click “Three horizontal lines” at the top right to select > “Settings and privacy”.
Step 3: Scroll through the list and find > “Viewing History” and there, tap on the “Settings” icon at the top right and turn on the option > “Viewing History”.
Step 4: That is all. Now all the videos you will watch will be saved under this header. So let’s learn how to watch videos in watch history.

How to View Tiktok Videos You Watched on iPhone:
To view TikTok videos you previously viewed on your account, follow the steps:
Step 1 – Open TikTok and go to the profile
First of all, please go to the “App Store” and check whether the TikTok app is up to date or not. If not, you need to update the app for this feature.
Then after updating the app, open the TikTok app. This time you will find little but advanced options and updated to new locations.
Well, to view the story videos, you need to go to the “Profile” section. For this, tap on the “Me” option in the bottom right corner of the main screen. Tap “Me” and your profile page will appear on the screen.
Step 2: Tap the “Menu” icon.
On the profile page, you will see your profile picture, bio, username, and then the total number of followers, followers, likes, and posts, etc. Along with that, there will be some options at the top of the tab.
Now you need to go to the “Menu” page. For this, look towards the top right corner of the profile screen. There you will see “Three Horizontal Lines”. This is nothing more than the “Menu” icon. Tap on it and a few options will appear in the bottom section of the screen.
Step 3: Select “Settings and Privacy”
The “Menu” icon on the profile page will take you to the list of options where you will get “Settings and privacy”. When you touch Menu, a list will appear from the bottom. From that list, select > “Settings and privacy”.
Under this heading, a long list of options will appear on the screen, helping you view the desired save data. Now, in the list, find > “History View”.
Step 4: Tap “Viewing History” to find the record of the last 7 days
Next, in the “Settings and privacy” tab, scroll down the list and select > “Viewing history”. The open page will give you access to the videos of the last 7 days that you have watched in your account. The videos would be arranged from the last to the first viewing way. Remember, this is only the data for the last 7 days.
Scroll through the list and enjoy watching the videos again.
Step 5: Make sure the option is enabled
However, if there are no videos in the “Play history” tab, it means that the option to save watched videos is not activated. To enable the option, tap the “Gear” icon, which is the “Settings” icon in the top right corner of the Play History tab. And from the list of options shown below, turn on the “View History” option.
Make sure this option is activated, otherwise the videos will not be saved.
The bottom lines:
“View History” is the newly added feature in TikTok app. Therefore, it is necessary to update the application. Once updated, make sure the “View History” option is saved. Since not all users save their watch history, TikTok gave them flexibility. However, to see the playback history, some in the “Settings and privacy” tab and open “Play history”, you will find the last 7 days of video viewing there.
