If you've been on TikTok for a while, you've probably seen thousands of videos. However, you might suddenly want to know the exact number of videos you have watched in the past. Unfortunately, TikTok doesn't have an option that lets you see this.

However, if you are persistent enough, there is a way to access a file containing all your watched videos. If this information would be useful to you, you have come to the right place. This article will share useful tips on how to access all videos you have watched from your TikTok account for iPhone and Android users.



How to Know How Many TikToks You've Viewed on iPhone

TikTok has undoubtedly been the fastest growing platform over the past year. Plus, with millions of videos uploaded every day, the traffic keeps growing. The more people interact with the app, the more curious they can become about how many TikToks they've actually viewed.

So how do you know how many TikToks you've viewed? The easiest way is to browse your video history on TikTok, but this feature is still not available for most users.

Some people can see their viewing history on their profile. So you can try these steps to see if your account is also applicable:

  1. Start TIC Tac on your iPhone.
  2. Tap the "Profile" icon at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap on the three vertical lines and look for the "Watch History" option.
  4. If it's there, tap on it. A history of all the TikTok videos you have watched will be presented to you.

Otherwise, you will have to go far. You can download your TikTok activity file which contains all your personal information including links to all the videos you have ever watched on your account.



Here's how to download this file using your iPhone:

  1. Start the TIC Tac application on your iPhone.
  2. Tap the "Profile" button at the bottom of the screen to access your profile.
  3. Tap the three vertical lines in the upper right corner.
  4. Go to "Settings".
  5. Scroll down to "Privacy".
  6. Go to “Personalization and data”.
  7. Tap on “Download your data”. You'll see a list of information you can download, including "Your Profile", "Your Activity", and "Your Application Settings".
  8. Tap "Request Data File".

    The process can take up to two days, depending on the file size. You will receive a notification that the request has been received and you can track its status under the "Download Data" tab. Once your request is approved, the status "Pending" will change to "Download" and you will be able to download the file.
  9. Get the file by pressing "Download".
    The file will be available for download for four days. Make sure to download the file before it disappears. Otherwise, you will have to send another request and wait two more days.
  10. The file will be downloaded to your iPhone's "Files" folder by default. If your iPhone cannot open the .zip file, you can transfer it to your computer.
  11. When you open the folder, navigate to the "Activity" folder.
  12. You will see a lot of “.txt” files. Open the one called “VideoBrowsingHistory.txt”.

Inside you will see a detailed list of all the videos watched on your account. The list will also contain timestamps and links to the videos. However, you will have to count them all to get an exact total.
