I can’t see who liked my TikTok

If you received a notification that someone liked your video, but you can't seem to find them in your notification center, it doesn't necessarily mean there's an error.

In most cases, this happens when someone unlikes your video after having liked it. TikTok will send out a notification, but once the user removes their like, their name will be gone from the 'Liked' list.

On the other hand, several users reported experiencing issues with their 'Liked' not opening at all. If you're experiencing a problem of this sort, it's probably due to an error with TikTok. You can check out TikTok's status on DownDetector.
