How to check your TikTok profile picture is not showing
Some users of the social media app TikTok have encountered an issue with their profile picture which some are unable to update.
Others have found that their profile picture just doesn’t show up at all.
Luckily, it’s easy to check if you’re having this issue on your profile.
Follow the steps below to navigate to the profile picture options:
- Open the application
- Select “Profile” in the bottom right
- Select “Edit Profile”
- Select “Change photo”
- Select Take Photo or Upload Photo.
After you choose your profile picture, it should be visible on your profile.
If it still doesn’t show up, try restarting your app.
If the problem persists, it might be a server issue and you can check if the TikTok servers are down.

But if yours is gone, don’t despair because there are a few different fixes you can try.
Restart the application
Start by restarting the app.
The old “turn it on and off” technique sounds like an obvious one, but it’s a technical solution for a reason.
This will update your phone and you may find that it is no longer a problem when you open it again.
Check the servers
If restarting the app didn’t work, you can always check the servers.
Find if the TikTok servers are down online as you may have to wait for them to come back up.
Update the app
It could be that your app is simply outdated and could use an update.
Updates often include fixes for known bugs in apps.
