TikTok is currently one of the most popular apps when it comes to entertaining content. However, it still disappoints some users because of existing system bugs, glitches, and other similar issues.

This is not quite surprising since even the old social media platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and other big names, also suffer from serious internal bugs. Since this is the case, their developers are releasing regular updates to fix the new glitches and other system issues.

Meanwhile, TikTok users are currently complaining that the app is suffering from the so-called FYP bug. Once this glitch happens, the videos in the application's "For You Page" will automatically stop playing.

On the other hand, some users said that the offered content would reload after ten seconds. However, the specific video they are watching will be removed, which is certainly annoying.

Why Does Tiktok FYP Bug Exist?

According to HITC's latest report, TikTok hasn't confirmed why the current system glitch still happens. However, some people claimed that they never encountered the issue before.

If this is the case, this means that the application's bug doesn't really affect the social media platform itself. Instead, the glitch will only appear randomly on certain TikTok accounts.

As of the moment, TikTok hasn't confirmed if its developers are already working on a fix. The giant social media firm also hasn't released any statement if the FYP issue is actually a system glitch.

"@tiktok_us my tiktok is glitching really bad. Video freezes and turns into green and black pixels. Anyone else? #tiktok #glitch," said one of the complainers on Twitter.

"My tiktok fyp is glitching, every other video stops working half way through. And will just stop or start over after 10 seconds. Anyone else have this problem? #TikTok #fyp #tiktokfyp #tiktokglitch," added another TikTok fan.

Fixing the TikTok FYP Glitch 

If you are spending your time watching viral TikTok challenges, such as the recent "My Name Is Suzie" trend, the current FYP bug will certainly annoy you. 

Since the developers haven't addressed the glitch, the best thing you can do is follow these steps provided by Dexerto to fix the issue yourself: 

  • Restarting the app or your whole device.
  • Clear your cache (Go to the 'Me' tab, click the three dots to open settings, scroll down to the clear cache button).
