Tiktok which is one of the most used social media platforms provides the drafts feature to its users to save the videos or content before posting it. Likewise, other platforms also offer this feature to their users.
The reason why users of the social platforms want the “Drafts” is that they can save their videos if they are planning not to publish them right away. And this feature has been helping the users to its best.
However, it has been reported and complained by many TikTok users that their draft videos are being published automatically without their consent. Also, some users have complained that their drafts are deleted and they can’t find them anymore in the application.
Are you also experiencing the same issues with your drafts? We would discuss in this post about the issue and find out if this is actually true or if is it just a rumor.
Is Tiktok Posting Drafts Automatically?
As of now, TikTok has not yet addressed this issue officially.
However, it has been reported that some users have noticed that their drafts are posted automatically without their knowledge and some have reported that they have been deleted too.
We have not identified any valid reason for this issue. And this is not the first time users have reported the issue of their drafts being automatically posted.
The users have faced a similar issue in the past too back in June 2020. Users reported that their incomplete and unedited videos were published and viewed thousand times before they were deleted.
It is not that all users have been facing this issue which is why some users believe that it is just a rumor as TikTok has not addressed this issue. Later, everything was back to normal.
One user said, “TikTok just randomly posted one of my drafts, 100k people saw it, I’m gonna cry.”
It’s not clear whether these reports are true and they are not just rumors. If this is true, it is an issue that has to be addressed as soon as possible by TikTok as it is concerning its users.
it is not evident that the drafts on TikTok are being published on their own, however, you can keep your drafts safe in TikTok by following the steps mentioned below.
