If you’ve ever seen a TikTok and forgotten to like, favourite or share it, you may be thinking it’s lost forever in the depths of your For You Page. However, there’s actually a simple way to recover that video.
Not only can you find a list of all the TikTok videos you’ve recently viewed, ready for you to rewatch or share with your friends, but you can also delete specific videos from that list.
