Why Is My TikTok Video Under Review? [4 Reasons]

TikTok Video Under Review

Well, who among us hasn’t made or watched a TikTok video, whether secretly or with your gang?

I know I have and I know you have. Whether you like them, hate them or watch them as a guilty pleasure, TikTok is definitely the new YouTube!!

Even the haters would have to agree to an extent.

But lately, I’ve seen a number of people complaining about their video showing “TikTok Video Under Review” sign and it’s getting frustrating for them as it takes days for their video to actually getting approved! Or sometimes, not at all!

Well, nobody can solve anything until they know the problem at the core of it. So, in this article, we’ll explain to you the reasons as to why this actually happens and then, you can do something about it.

4 Reasons Why Is Your TikTok Video Under Review

Adult/Pornographic Content

TikTok is a site for people belonging to all age groups and is for content consumption by general audiences, including kids (even though, the official age limit for TikTok is 13+).

Considering that, in a safe digital place like this, you cannot upload adult/pornographic content for any reason. And in doing so, you are inviting the app to strike your video down or show the warning “TikTok Video Under Review”.

So, be on the safer side, both for yourself and the public at large, and avoid posting such content.

Violence Shown In Videos

Another reason for the “TikTok Video Under Review” warning is violence and bloodshed-based content.

Though yes, they are a reality of life but in a safe digital platform like TikTok, it is not really prudent to show violence (whether real-life or fictional) and bloodshed in your videos because this may have a bad effect on anyone involved, especially if the person on the other side of the screen is an underage 15-year-old boy.

Videos that violate moral conduct or show/promote crimes

There are many forms of moral misconduct other than pornographic videos and violence-based videos.

Including them in your videos is not right in the first place and then actually posting them on the app is obviously misplaced!

You cannot show videos featuring crime as underage people maybe wrongly influenced by them.

Moreover, why would you wanna post such content in the first place? If you see some crime taking place, it’s better to report it to the authorities than video record the incident and upload it on TikTok for views.

Copyright infringement

This is a “murky” area with the precise rules not being black and white and therefore, it is a very common issue plaguing TikTok specifically and many other apps in general.

You cannot make videos or other content that infringes on the copyright of an existing IP (Intellectual Property).

The owners of the said IP have the right and will rightfully exercise that right to have the video put down.

Naturally, in such cases, the warning “TikTok video under review” is inevitable to show up on your uploaded video.


In the end, we’ll just like to say that TikTok is a wonderful platform to sit back, relax and contribute fun and engaging content to the outside world or if making content is not your forte in general, then, just sit back and enjoy the diverse content that is uploaded by people from all around the world.

So, stating some more obvious truth, it is absolutely essential that it remains a safe place for all involved and anything which is deemed to be violent, or inappropriate to the moral conduct, is rightly put down to “TikTok Video under review” and may be taken down eventually if it’s grossly inappropriate and not corrected later. So, be responsible and not indulge in such videos at all!

How long does it take for TikTok to review a video?

To review a video TikTok takes approximately 48 hours if it was taken down. But in some cases, it takes more than 48 hours.

Why TikTok is so popular?

TikTok is popular just because it’s easy to use. In this application, you can easily edit the content you make and upload it without any difficulty.

What are the best alternatives for TikTok?

The best alternatives of TikTok are Byte, Dubsmash, Instagram Reels, Chingari, and many more.

Who owns TikTok?

TikTok is owned by a Chinese company ByteDance. It is used to create short time videos and lip-sync.
