This help center guide outlines how to get unbanned from TikTok without losing account activity.

Why did you get banned from TikTok?

All social media platforms have pretty much the same community guidelines. If you read TikTok guidelines, you might acknowledge the root of the problem and why you get banned in the first place. 

TikTok banned your account because:

  • You use a third-party app to get engagement and followers.
  • You are underage.
  • TikTok received a complaint against you.
  • Your content has violated community guidelines.

Types of TikTok ban your account can experience

Every time you are under the ban, you will receive a bar notification from TikTok customer support. Moreover, the duration of the ban depends on the offense you have committed.

Here are four types of bans you might experience in TikTok.

  1. Shadow ban: A shadow ban can limit your engagement and reach of new posts in the news feed.
  2. Ban on live streaming and comment: You will lose the privilege of adding comments or doing a live stream.
  3. Temporary ban: When you make a minor violation, your account will get a temporary suspension.
  4. Permanently banned: Your account will permanently be suspended, and you will lose all your followers and account activity.

Good News, every temporary ban can be uplifted once you submit a help appeal & clear all the confusion with the TikTok support center. Unfortunately, there is no way of uplifting a permanent ban.

A temporary or permanently banned account won’t be able to post content, add comments, or interact with the audience. The best way is to wait for 1 to 5 days or the time limit TikTok has imposed on you. However, you can also fill complaint form as well.
