    Accessing TikTok

    I have a new ipad and can't seem to access TikTok even trying all the tricks. It's a wifi only model so no sim card to remove and I have *******. Everywhere I look I just see pick a good country in vpn and it works. But I get no connection errors no matter where in the word I choose. Can anybody give me any advice on how to get on? Thanks.

    Can you access tiktok.com in Safari?

    Hmm well I kept trying different VPN (Nord)servers till it worked. I guess some are blocked? Didn't try safari as it's working but now I'm afraid to turn it off and have it not work lol.

    Yeah, only works by VPN but wasn't sure why it wasn't. I guess some servers dont work on it,but no clue how to find out which ones do or don't.

    Tiktok exited HK during the protests because they couldn't balance the western expectations of freedom speech with their obligations, as a Chinese company, to block content which endangers national security. Douyin, the Chinese counterpart, is available.

    Couldn't get it working again on my iPhone, through ExpressVPN and even with SIM removed and double checking that there's no location permission passed to the app. I'd say it stopped working a couple of months ago?

    I'm wondering if there are additional checks in place, or it just so happens TikTok added a whole bunch of VPN IP's to their list.

    On the other hand, ExpressVPN on the desktop + Safari works just fine.

    The server I used stopped working today, and tried a list of 10 servers Nord sent me and no go. They seem to be finding them fast. Prob easy to detect for tt.

    The trick that has always worked for me is a foreign (I used Japanese) SIM and... no VPN. I'm serious.

    Ask you helper to buy a Filipino sim card for you. That works.
