How to fix TikTok notifications not working

The growing popularity of TikTok made this video creation app one of the most downloaded on Google Play and App Store. People like it because it’s easy to use, fun, and lets you express your creativity through short, fun videos.

Every time one of your videos receives a new like or comment, the app informs you. What if you have a favorite TikToker whose posts you don’t want to miss? You can get a notification every time they post new things. If this feature doesn’t work, we have some possible solutions for you.

What notifications does TikTok offer?

TikTok offers many functions and features, including Notifications. Unlike other social media sites, you can choose which activities you would like to receive and mute which ones you prefer to ignore.

To get started, let’s review the TikTok notifications:

  • Pleasures
  • Comments
  • New followers
  • Mentions
  • Direct messages
  • New videos from those you follow
  • Suggested Videos
  • LIVE video recommendations

How to turn on TikTok notifications

To get started, let’s make sure your TikTok notifications are enabled. There are a few places to check. First, we will show you how to make sure that notifications are enabled in the TikTok app. Then we’ll show you how to make sure they are enabled on your Android or iOS device.

Using the TikTok app, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the “Me” icon in the lower left corner. Then, tap on the three vertical dots in the upper right corner.
  2. Tap “Push Notifications.”
  3. Activate notifications.

If all notifications are on, you’ll want to check your phone’s notifications. Android users can swipe down from the top of their screen and tap on the ‘Apps’ option. Then scroll down to TikTok and tap on ‘Notifications’. Make sure it says “Allowed.”

IOS users can also check TikTok notifications in the Settings app. Tap on ‘TikTok’ and then tap on ‘Notifications’. Toggle the “Allow notifications” switch so it turns green.

What if the notifications don’t work?

From now on, you will receive notifications when this user posts a new video. But what if you have enabled this feature, but it doesn’t work?

Here are some possible solutions.

1. Pending updates

Check the Google Play Store or App Store for pending updates. An app can start to crash when you missed an update or two.

2. TikTok notifications not allowed

Check the notification settings within the app to make sure your push notifications are enabled.

3. Telephone notifications not allowed

Take a look at your phone’s notification settings to see if they allow TikTok to send you notifications.

4. Deactivate the function and try again

Go to the desired user’s profile and turn off the post notifications feature, then turn it on again. It may have been a temporary error. Try using this feature with other profiles to make sure it works.

5. Reinstall the application

Reinstalling the TikTok app helps in some cases. There may have been an error during the installation, causing some of the application functions to not work properly.

6. TikTok may be down

If this is the case, you must be patient. All apps need regular maintenance, so post notifications and other non-working features may be temporary.

Checking notification settings on TikTok

If you’re not sure how to check if your notifications are on, here’s a quick guide. Before proceeding with troubleshooting, start with the notification settings within the app. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Open the TikTok application on your smartphone.
  2. Tap Me in the lower right corner of the home screen.
  3. Once you’ve opened your profile, tap on the three-dot icon in the upper-right corner.
  4. In the General section, choose Push notifications.
  5. Toggle the toggle for all interactions for which you want to receive notifications. When it is on, the switch turns green.

In this section, you can choose what you want to receive notifications about, such as new likes, comments, followers, mentions, direct messages and more.

If you change your mind at any point and want to turn off notifications, follow these same steps, but switch the toggle to the other side in the last step.

Allow notifications on your smartphone

Sometimes there is an issue with your phone that is interfering with your notifications, and not with the app itself. Do the following if notifications are allowed for TikTok:

  1. On the home screen, choose Settings.
  2. Scroll to find apps and touch to open.
  3. Depending on the phone you have, touch Applications or Manage applications.
  4. Scroll to find TikTok on the list. Or start typing TikTok in the search bar.
  5. Touch to open TikTok details and choose Notifications.
  6. Make sure to turn on the toggle button next to Allow notifications.
