This is a very common problem that your TikTok doesn’t show your video to anyone.

Zero Views on All or Recent TikTok Video

Let’s understand a technical problem here, Tik Tok has an algorithm to block people from uploading videos they don’t own, meaning people just download the other viral videos and upload them on their own profile to gain views and followers.

So, Tik Tok catches a bunch of such videos and blocks them, but it has a problem too, this algorithm sometimes catches the original video too, and takes this video under review which is unfair.

How to find your video under review on TikTok?

If you have a video with 0 views, even your own views do not count to it. Click that video and then click 3 dots, try to share your video via message to your friend, if you click on share and it says “this video is under review and can’t be shared right now”, then the algorithm Tik Tok has blocked your video.

Now, all you need to do is click the plus size and record and make a video in TikTok any funny thing and publish it, if you manage to get a single view by watching yourself, then that is it, you don’t have any problem with your account, it is problem with the algorithm.

I know it is terrible, but this is how Tik Tok is working right now.
