TikTok has emerged as one of the most popular platforms, captivating millions of users with its short-form videos and creative features.

Its ‘Stories’ feature, a new addition to the platform, was met with enthusiasm by users who embraced the opportunity to share temporary videos that automatically disappear from their profiles after 24 hours.


However, this new functionality is also causing a lot of issues for people, just like other TikTok features that frequently exhibit some problems (1,2,3).

TikTok ‘Stories’ or ‘Story mode’ missing

According to reports, the ‘Stories’ feature has suddenly vanished from some of the users’ accounts, leaving them puzzled and frustrated (1,2,3,4,5,6).

The feature was quickly embraced by a number of users as it added a new dimension to their content. The ability to simultaneously use the front and back camera allowed them to experiment with their videos.

But the excitement surrounding TikTok Stories soon turned into disappointment. Complaints began to emerge from users who were previously able to access ‘Stories’ but had suddenly lost the feature.
