Why Does TikTok Keep Logging Me Out Automatically? + 5 Step Fix

You might be wondering why TikTok keeps logging you out of your account automatically without any warning.

In this post, I’ll go through exactly why you are facing this issue on TikTok and the simple fixes to solve this problem.

Why Does TikTok Log Me Out?

  • Unauthorized access to your TikTok account
  • The TikTok Servers are down
  • You have a poor internet connection
  • Your TikTok account is disabled
  • You have recently updated the app
  • Unauthorized access to your account has happened without you knowing

How do I stop TikTok from automatically logging me out?

Change Your Password

This will stop anyone from accessing your account without you knowing.

To reset a password while logged in:

  • Tap Profile in the bottom right.
  • Tap the 3-line icon in the top right.
  • Tap Settings and Privacy.
  • Tap Manage account > Password.
  • Follow the instructions to reset your password.

To reset a password when you are not logged in:

  • Tap Sign up.
  • Tap Log in at the bottom of the page.
  • Select Use phone/email/username.
  • Choose Email / Username.
  • Tap Forgot password?
  • Choose to reset the password with a Phone number or Email.

Note: For users who joined TikTok using another social media account, passwords must be reset on that platform.

Check your internet connection

If TikTok cannot detect an internet connection, you will be unable to log in to the app and use its features.

Try rebooting your internet router or using your other apps/internet browser to see whether they are functioning normally.

Check your account security

If you are being logged out of TikTok it could be that your account is compromised. Luckily, TikTok has a feature that lets you see users who have previously logged in.

  • Launch the TikTok app and log into your account
  • Tap on your Profile in the bottom-right corner of the screen
  • Tap the Settings icon in the top right corner of the screen
  • On the Settings window, tap on Privacy & Safety
  • Tap on ‘Personalization & Data
  • Click ‘Download your data
  • You should now see two tabs displaying ‘Request data‘ and ‘Download Data
  • Click Request Data, which is a ZIP file that contains your account data, including your profile activity
  • Wait up to 48 hours before being able to download the data. Your browser will download the ZIP file to your device.

Check TikTok server status

If the TikTok servers are currently down at the moment you try to log in, you won’t be able to do so. Therefore, verify the service is up, and if not, wait for the TikTok developers to resolve the backend issues. Then, try signing in again.

Check your TikTok account status

The easiest way to know if your TikTok account has been disabled is to see a banner notification appear the next time you load the app.

If no banner appears, it will indicate you are experiencing another login issue.

To resolve this, you can submit an appeal by following these instructions:

  • Tap the banner notification
  • Click Appeal
  • Follow the on-screen instructions

Final solutions to stop TikTok from automatically logging you out

Hopefully, after following these steps, you can now log back into your TikTok account.

If you are still experiencing issues then make sure you are running the latest version of the app by uninstalling and reinstalling the app.

If none of these solutions helped, you will need to contact the TikTok official support team.
