Why Did My TikTok Account Get Banned?
The main reason why TikTok started banning accounts is that TikTok was violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and for this TikTok paid $5.3 million as a settlement fee to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
This happened because the users had not given the actual date of birth or couldn’t provide a Government Verified ID as proof of their age. Many users are legally eligible to use TikTok but they didn’t find the source to verify their age and due to this their TikTok account get banned.
Another reason behind banning the account is that the users are uploading unpleasant or vulgar content on TikTok. TikTok has provided guidelines on what type of contents users can publish. And if the user doesn’t follow the guideline that it is a high possibility that TikTok will permanently ban their account.
Some of the other reasons behind banning TikTok account are:
- When you are bullying other users.
- If you are promoting crime, terrorism, and other violent behavior.
- When you are buying followers and likes.
- If you are using hateful speech in your content.
- TikTok suspecting you to be bot.
- Using illegal substances in your contents.
- Promoting discrimination, exclusion, or segregation against certain groups.
- Using drugs, alcohol, or tobacco while making videos.
If this is the case with you then chances to unban your TikTok account have a lower possibility.
These are some of the reasons due to which your TikTok account can be banned.

Method 3: Use A VPN
Many countries banned TikTok in the last few months. If you belong to such a nation then you will not able to access TikTok. This is because your network administrator would have blocked the platform.

If you wish to use another email address then you can use some email addresses – email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org.
While appealing, remember that you are appealing to them to unban your account. Tell them in a respectful manner and show emotion to them. Also, tell them why you need that account and who much you have worked to reach your account to that position and about the memories attached to it.
It is not easy to get back the account. You need to make them notice your appeal from the pile of others. The review process is slow so, it will take a long time to recover the account. Therefore, keep sending emails every day.
