Imagine you’ve just made a super cool dance video for TikTok, only to get an error message saying it’s “under review”. Now, that’s a real bummer, isn’t it? But don’t worry, it happens. And today, we’re going to discover why!
TikTok – The World’s Stage
TikTok is a stage where everyone from kids to grown-ups, students to business owners, and even non-profit organizations can show off their skills, ideas, or products. This stage is watched by millions worldwide! That’s why TikTok keeps a close eye on all the performances to make sure they’re safe and fun for everyone.
The Rules of TikTok
TikTok has a set of rules that everyone must follow. These rules say that you shouldn’t steal someone else’s video, show too much skin, or say mean things. If your video breaks any of these rules, TikTok might stop it from being shown until it’s checked carefully. This is what it means when your video is “under review”.
“Under Review” – What’s Going On?
Even if your video is as innocent as a kitten playing with yarn, sometimes TikTok might still put it “under review”. This might happen when your video is new, or even if it was posted a while ago. While under review, your followers can’t see your video, and it won’t show up on the “For You” page.
Why is TikTok Reviewing My Video?
Sometimes TikTok might review your videos even if you haven’t broken any rules. This can happen when you’re really popular on TikTok and you post lots of videos. Because there are so many videos on TikTok, the app uses a computer program to help find videos that might need to be reviewed.
Who Clears the “Under-Review” Error?
You might be thinking, “Wow, that’s a lot of videos for TikTok to check!” And you’re right. That’s why TikTok has a team of real humans who help check videos. If your video is under review, it will be looked at by a person, who will decide if it can be shown again. This usually takes about 48 hours, but sometimes it can take a bit longer.
Some Questions You Might Have
Can my account be banned forever?
Yes, if you keep breaking TikTok’s rules, your account can be stopped forever.
Am I being reviewed by TikTok?
If your account says it’s under review, then yes, TikTok is checking it.
Is the “under review” message a mistake?
Sometimes the “under review” message can be a mistake. You can try refreshing the app to see if it goes away. If it doesn’t, then TikTok is probably checking your video.
So, if your video is under review, don’t panic! It might be because TikTok’s computer program thinks your video could break the rules, even if it doesn’t. Or, it might just be a little mistake. Either way, a real human will check your video, and if it’s okay, it will be back up for everyone to see in no time. Just remember to keep your videos fun and friendly, and you’ll be a TikTok star in no time!
