Why is TikTok Showing Me the Same Videos I've Already Watched?

Some users have been complaining that their TikTok For You page (FYP) is filled with videos they’ve already viewed or even liked. It’s a frustrating bug that has been affecting a few thousand people at a time.

The FYP is based on user data that includes everything from the videos you watch to your username, what you like or dislike and how many times you’ve watched a video all the way through. It’s a great tool that allows TikTok to show content tailored to you. However, sometimes the algorithm can get stuck and start showing you low-performing videos. This can be caused by a variety of things including the TikTok app needing an update, the internet connection being too slow, or your Wi-Fi signal strength being too low.

Other reasons why your FYP may be filled with repeating videos include following new TikTok accounts that post different types of content from the ones you follow now. Adding a new creator to your FYP will give the algorithm a fresh set of data to work with and help it better understand your interests.

Lastly, if you’ve chosen ‘Not Interested’ on a video that’s been showing up in your FYP a few times or watched a few videos that you don’t like all the way through, it might be time to clear your user data. This will allow the algorithm to understand that you aren’t interested in this type of video and will start serving you different kinds of videos.
