TikTok Is Down And Users Are Going Crazy



Video sharing social networking service TikTok is down for thousands of users on Android and iOS worldwide.

According to independent monitoring site downdetector, users that seems to be most affected by the down time are from the eastern and western part of the US, southern part of Canada, and western Europe. While users in some part of eastern Europe, Australia, Malaysia, South Africa, some parts of South America also experienced the blackout.


TikTok user stormed Twitter to report the issues. Stats from downdetector shows 88% of users having issues with video content, while others are having issues uploading video clips. Some users reported that their video views and like counts for today have been removed from TikTok.


Last week, India, TikTok's largest overseas market placed a ban on the app and other Chinese apps over spy allegations. Following India's ban, the US secretary of State Mike Pompeo also indicated that the app could be banned in the US too. There has also been widespread for the ban of TikTok in Australia too.

With all these, the blackout led to fears that the video sharing app might have been banned in the countries proposing the ban.

TikTok support on Twitter acknowledged the problem and assured users that they were working on a fix for the issue.
As at the time of this post, users are seeing the app gradually return back to normal.
