Is TikTok banning fanpages?

  • TikTok has not confirmed that they are banning fanpages, but users claim that they are.

Many TikTok users began taking to social media on Wednesday (October 28th) to warn others that TikTok was banning fanpages from the app.

TikTok has not publicly announced that it is banning fanpages for any specific reason, however users have been seeing their favourite fanpages disappearing over the past few days.

How to stop your fanpage being banned

  • Change your profile picture.

TikTok users have been claiming that the app is banning fan accounts based on their profile picture. So, if your profile photo is of a celebrity or TikTok star then it will automatically assume you are a fanpage and ban you.

It is currently unknown whether this is actually true, but TikTok users have been changing their profile pictures to avoid a potential ban.

Users are suggesting that fanpages change their picture to a plain black image, or a random photo of an animal to avoid getting banned.
