Tiktok is down, what should I do?

Imagine you suppose to open your Tiktok and send your friend some media, but the problem is Tiktok is not working!!! What happened? What to do now?

Have we experienced any outages in 2021? In this article, I will the whole story with details.

A piece of a brief introduction to Tiktok

Tiktok is a Chinese video-sharing platform, known in china as Douyin (meaning “vibrating sound”). Tiktok is created and owned by ByteDance and you can find many types of short videos of different genres, such as dancing, educational and funny. The duration of videos is set from 15 seconds to 3 minutes.

To be honest, Tiktok is the international version of Douyin (Douyin is released in 2016 in mainland China, Tiktok in the next year), and it supports more than 35 languages, so any person can enjoy it. Tiktok is only available for iOS and Android devices and you cannot use it on your PC.

I cannot log in to my Tiktok, how to fix?

If the problem is systematic, there is not much work to do!!! But most of the time, the servers are ready to respond and there is something with the receivers (app on users’ phone).

Firstly, you can simply restart your phone. If the problem is still running, be sure you are using the most updated version of the app. This method is very useful because new updates sometimes mean that the former versions will not work anymore. Another way is to visit the Tiktok website and see if there is an announcement about the outage.

What happened to Tiktok in the September of 2021?

On September 17, 12:05 pm, TikTok support confirmed that they are aware that some users were facing issues with the app several hours ago. There were also some complaints on the Down Detector website from the users. But after several hours, the support team declared that anything has resolved and the platform is ready to work.

Is Tiktok working now?

Yes. There are no more bugs left in the servers and also no complaint posts on social media from users.

How can I check the status?

Here we have a list of websites that you can visit and get informed about the latest news;

  1. Downdetector.com
  2. Servicesdown.com
  3. Updownradar.com
  4. Isitdownrightnow.com
  5. Istheservicedown.com

Furthermore, you can also see other users’ posts and see if there are any complaints about the servers.


I hope this article could be useful for you. Most messaging platforms such as Telegram, Instagram, Twitter, and also Tiktok, rarely face the problem and need to debug. Otherwise, you have to wait until the developer team resolves the issue.
