TikTok is now testing a new feature ‘post view history’ that enables users to see which of their followers have viewed their posts. On the other hand, people you follow will be able to see that you viewed their posts. A spokesperson for TikTok stated that the new post view history feature is not widely available, which suggests that it’s presently part of a limited test with select users. The new feature was first spotted online by social media consultant Matt Navarra, who posted screenshots displaying the new functionality.
The New Post View History Option Will Display 7 Days Viewing History
The screenshots indicate that TikTok is referring to the feature as “post view history.” They also show that you can turn the feature off at any time from the Settings menu. In addition, it appears that post view history will only be available for seven days from the date that a video was posted. “We’re always thinking about new ways to bring value to our community and enrich the TikTok experience,” stated a spokesperson from TikTok.

The Feature is Only Available to Users Having Fewer than 5000 Followers
Furthermore, this feature is only available to users who are above the age of 16 and have fewer than 5,000 followers. If you have the post view feature, you’ll see an eye icon in the top-right corner when you look at your own profile. If you click on it, you’ll see who viewed your profile in the last 30 days. Only you can see who viewed your profile, but if you turn on the feature, then you’re also agreeing to let other people see that you’ve viewed their profile.
Users have to manually opt-in to TikTok profile views, but it’s unknown if that is the case with post view history. TikTok did not say whether other people can only see that you’ve viewed their video if you have the feature turned on yourself, as is the case with profile views.
