Your data includes comment history, chat history, purchases, likes and favorites.
There are variety of reasons why you may want to clear your history, such as freeing up space on your device. A snooping significant other will have to request a download of your data to see your full history. It takes 1-2 days to process and is availble up to 4 days for download. You search history can be quickly accessed in the Discovery tab.Here's how to clear your TikTok cache and search history.
