The social network broke the rules for the protection of children's online privacy (COPPA) and was fined $ 5.7 million. The fact TikTok criticized is quite serious in the United States, the platform, which currently has more than 500 million users worldwide, collected data that should not have asked minors. TikTok, also known as Douyin in China, is a media app for creating and sharing short videos. Owned by ByteDance, Tik Tok is a leading  video platform in Asia, United States, and other parts of the world.

Hopefully soon you’ll be able to keep track of all the cool videos you see on the app.

It seems that the creators of the popular social media app TikTok are testing a new feature which will allow users to go back and find videos from other users that they previously watched. According to TechCrunch, who made the discovery, this new addition will finally give users a way to browse through videos in a much more straightforward way.

The image which led to the news about a potential update was leaked by Twitter user Hammod Oh (@hammodoh1) who has a reputation for making similar findings about other apps. It was then retweeted by TechCrunch’s social media consultant Matt Navarra. The image includes the Content & Activity sub-menu of the TikTok settings and clearly shows a “Watch History” option.

This is a highly requested feature for the app as many users have been attempting to find a way to work around it, with some going as far as to download their entire TikTok data records just so they can find a single video.

However, before this news is officially confirmed, we recommend you take it with a grain of salt, as with all rumours that tend to go around the internet from time to time…
