Discontinuation Notice: We will no longer be updating this tracker with new data.

TikTok is currently the most popular short video platform in the world. Although it is a relatively new service, its popularity grew rapidly, especially among the youth.

TikTok’s core functionality isn’t especially new, as the short video format has previously been implemented in apps like Vine. However, the service knew how to make the most of it to quickly attract millions of people.


TikTok not only allows you to browse through thousands of videos of almost all types, but also offers instant messaging just like Instagram. So, many also use it as a communication tool.

Like other similar services, TikTok can experience occasional outages. Therefore, in this tracker, we will follow up on those moments in which TikTok goes down or stops working in 2023 for any reason.

Following are some instructions that’ll help you go through this tracker easily:

  • This is a text-only tracker that focuses on highlighting the incidents of outage and/ the service in question going down or becoming temporarily dysfunctional for some reason.
  • The outage reports highlighted in this tracker are based on user reports on social media platforms like Twitter & Reddit, along with Downdetector – a platform that monitors real-time problems and outages in popular services.
  • The time of the update is mentioned in IST and is in 24-hour format. Also note, the text updates will show up in ascending order with the latest coming at the bottom.
  • That’s all for the instructions.
    Note: Our team is trying hard to keep this tracker updated with all the latest info. However, if & when you feel something is missing, wrong, or should be added, do not hesitate to tip us in the comments or through email.
