TikTok are set to launch a new feature allowing users to check who has viewed their profile over the past thirty days.
The move comes as part of a wider transparency campaign by TikTok after long criticisms over how it handles user data and privacy. Similarly, the new feature could be used to foster connections between users.
Users have to opt-in to the new addition, and it will mean that users would be able to see a list of people who checked out their profile, giving them an opportunity to explore new content from likeminded individuals.
At the same time, it raises the fear of stalking for those already concerned. However, the overall value of the feature appears to be quite limited as it’s not entirely clear what it would offer users.
