How to Disable TikTok Watch History

TikTok has the option for users to save and monitor their viewing history, but it can be disabled if desired.

If you happen to want to watch a TikTok video again that you saw earlier but didn’t save, or perhaps you unintentionally refreshed the page and lost the video you were viewing, don’t worry. Thankfully, TikTok has the capability to save your viewing history for a week as long as the feature is enabled.

Nevertheless, if you choose not to have your watch history recorded for any reason, you can disable this feature in the settings. Here’s how to do it.
