They stand out among them: Shadowban (your videos TikTok will not appear on the “For You” page of other users); Temporary or permanent ban (A TikTok account is usually temporarily or permanently banned for a violation of community guidelines) or Underage Ban.
If you want to avoid any of these blocks, below you will find a series of tips to follow.
