Why is TikTok Unliking my videos?

TikTok will, unlike the videos you have reacted to if you have gone over the maximum number of likes you can do in one day.

Reason 1. Exceeded like limit

TikTok allocates 500 likes per day to users on the app.

If you have exceeded this limit while you are reacting to videos you see on your FYP (For You Page) your like will not reach the video.

Reason 2. TikTok server is down

TikTok will keep unliking videos if its server is experiencing issues that affect TikTok’s algorithms and software.

If the apps server is down, reactions made to videos will not get processed successfully, because the communication request from your action to the TikTok server is disrupted.

Reason 3. Internet issue

If you were not connected to the internet when you liked a video on TikTok, the like will not get added to the video.

If your network connection is working, but intermittent, or not fast enough, this will also interfere with the app processing your request to like a video.

How to stop TikTok unliking videos

To stop TikTok from unliking videos on your account, you need to make sure you are staying within the maximum of 500 likes per day. 

TikTok does not keep track of this for you, so if you are actively on TikTok throughout the day, you will need to keep a mental note of roughly how many likes you are giving out.

Fix 2. Confirm TikTok server status

You won’t be able to fix your TikTok app if the server is down.

This will be due to planned maintenance, or an unexpected issue that causes short-term effects to the normal functioning of the app.

You can, however, stay up to date with the status of TikTok’s server so you will know as soon as it’s up and running again.

Fix 3. Check internet connection

Make sure your Wifi router is connected, and supplying an internet connection, or your mobile data has not run out.

If your internet is experiencing intermittent issues, it will help if you power reset your router by unplugging it for a few minutes and plugging it back in.

On mobile data, switch your phone off and on again.

Fix 4. Wait it out

If you have been temporarily banned from liking too many videos on TikTok, you will have to wait out the 24 – 48 hour time frame.

You won’t be able to do anything from your TikTok account, and when you go onto your profile, it will state ‘This account is currently suspended’

You’ll know when you are back to having full access to TikTok when this notice disappears, and you can see your profile details.

(Interesting Fact; The app was originally called ‘Musical.ly’ and then later changed to ‘TikTok’ because the videos are so short.)

How do I stop my TikTok from tapping so fast?

Have you tried to a like a video on TikTok, but you are faced with the error message; ‘You’re tapping too fast, take a break!’

You are experiencing this message because you are liking too many videos in a short space of time without watching the full video.

Doing this, flags your account up as a ‘bot’ (a fake profile) so TikTok will temporarily ban your account.

When TikTok bans an account temporarily, you will not be able to like or comment on any videos for a short period.

The time frame lasts between 24 – 48 hours before you can have full access to your profile, and like/comment on creators videos.

Can you fix the error message; ‘You’re tapping too fast, take a break!’

This error message is only temporary and will be removed by TikTok. The best thing to do when faced with this message is to wait it out.

If, however, you want to fix the ban (it is not guaranteed it will work), you can try by clearing your TikTok’s cache files.

Step 1. Launch TikTok and go onto your ‘Profile’

Step 2. Select the 3 lines at the top of the screen

Step 3. Under ‘Cache and Cellular Data’ click on ‘Clear Cache’

This will clear all the downloaded data from your app, and potentially get rid of any ‘saved errors.’
