TikTok may be working on reinstating a feature that allows users to know who viewed their profile in the past 30 days.
According to a recent tweet shared by social commentator Matt Navarra, TikTok is working on reinstating an option that allows users to know who viewed their profile in the last 30 days.

The feature already existed on the short video sharing platform until the beginning of last year, when investigations into TikTok’s data-sharing processes caused the platform to discontinue it.
At the time, several high-profile TikTok creators fell victim to stalkers, and removing the option was seen as a way of reducing anxiety for those who may have concerns about sharing their information.
Nonetheless, TikTok is now obviously looking to bring the option back for users, albeit in an opt-in format, letting creators decide whether they want access to this type of information and transparency or not.

As the screenshots demonstrate, TikTok is testing the feature in an “opt-in” capacity, allowing users to see who has checked out their TikTok profile in the preceding 30 days when the feature is switched on.
Users will be able to obtain transparency on their profile view history only for the accounts that have visited their own profiles – and cannot see who has seen someone else’s profile. In addition, this information will be available to them from accounts that have also switched on the option.
In the previous version of the feature, TikTok didn’t allow users to optionally turn it on or off and presented the user profile view history in the form of a list of account names.
A similar feature exists on LinkedIn, where premium users are notified and shown the users who have visited their profile page recently.
The platform has not released any official details about the feature, or its potential rollout.
