The TikTok community relies on social media to create a community. Influencers and businesses rely on this for exposure and support. While [the influencer or business does not necessarily have to be the one getting shadowbanned, they should feel bad for whoever gets themselves in such a situation], when your account is shadowbanned it can negatively affect your reach and halt your growth.
Steps to Get Unshadowbanned on Tiktok:
There isn’t much information online about how exactly you get shadowbanned on TikTok, but we found that it has something to do with having too similar of an account name to another popular user. Even if you never got yourself banned and just want to avoid the possibility in the future, there are still steps you can take to save yourself from trouble.
First things first, you’ll want to create a new account with a unique name. It doesn’t even have to be anything special; just make sure it’s not similar to any other popular users. Just in case, you might also want to use an email address for your new account that is different from any others you’ve used on TikTok (including the one associated with your original account).
If this is too much trouble and deleting the old account and starting over seems like more of a hassle than it’s worth, there is another option: contact [TikTok’s customer service department] and explain the situation. There may or may not be something they can do about it, but if they can’t help, delete the old profile anyway. This just ensures that you are safe from future troubles.
Alternatively, if you have multiple accounts under your name (for any number of reasons) and one of them is getting banned, use the others to create more content while the original account gets itself unshadowbanned. Be sure to follow all TikTok rules when posting here too though!
These steps should get you off on the right foot in safely gaining back your TikTok audience. Just remember that eventually, they will find out about it even if they don’t notice immediately. Don’t get yourself into trouble at this point; it’s better to be safe than sorry!
