TikTok users have been experiencing an odd glitch that resets their follower count to 0. While there have been recent reports of this bug, it turns out TikTok has been dealing with this issue for years now.

The glitch resets follower counts

A few TikTok users have reported that their following has suddenly dropped to zero. Unfortunately, this problem has repeatedly happened in the past several years. In the hopes of receiving an immediate resolution, many users still reported the problem to TikTok.

Some users even believed they were banned from the platform, especially since TikTok asked them to re-enter their date of birth each time they opened the app. Still, the issue had nothing to do with being banned.

TikTok’s response to the issue

TikTok is aware of the issue and is trying to fix it. They addressed a similar issue in May 2021 and reported that it had been fixed, however the bug seems to be coming back every now and again.

The good news is that your account will not be permanently affected by this bug. Since TikTok has already resolved this problem, it seems likely that they will do so again shortly. There is little that affected users may do to resolve the issue on their own and TikTok is responsible for resolving the issue.

What to do if you experience the bug

You don’t have to worry if you’re having trouble with the zero-follower issue, as the issue is on TikTok’s side, and they are working on a fix.

Users will need to wait patiently for TikTok to fix the problem for the time being. With any luck, the TikTok team might be able to solve the issue permanently and prevent it from recurring in the future.
