Is There a Like Limit on TikTok? – Yes: 500 Likes Per Day

Are you wondering if TikTok will shadowban or restrict your actions on TikTok if you like too many videos at once?

After researching, I found a great answer: the TikTok algorithm will most likely restrict you after 500 likes per day.

TikTok has determined that liking more than 500 videos daily is unnatural and disingenuous, so it’s most likely spam.

However, the “500 likes per day” limit is not official. TikTok doesn’t say on their Terms and Conditions that they’ll restrict your account after 500 daily likes.

This number comes from users performing tests and sharing their experiences. Read below if you want to find out more about this!

Summary: TikTok may restrict your account if you like more than 500 videos per day. This limit is not official and comes from user experiences. 

Liking too many videos is seen as spam or disingenuous behavior by the TikTok algorithm. To avoid being restricted, act naturally and interact genuinely on the platform. 

Don’t set a goal of liking a certain number of videos per day and don’t do anything you don’t feel like doing. If you act naturally, you won’t get in trouble with TikTok.

Why Does TikTok Restrict You When Liking Too Many Videos?

TikTok doesn’t like spammers, and that’s exactly what you look like when liking 500-600 videos daily.

Watching that many videos per day from beginning to end are nearly impossible unless you spend the whole day doing it.

TikTok sees this behavior as spam or disingenuous liking. Both cases are problematic in the algorithm’s eyes. And why would you do that unless you had a goal in mind?

If you wake up with a shadowban after a session of 500-600 likes on TikTok, you now know why that is.

Spamming is never good, not on TikTok or other social media platforms. The technicians who build the algorithms program it to spot spam and punish it.

I don’t know the exact principles on which the TikTok algorithm identifies spam but liking too many videos per day is among them.

What Can I Do to Avoid Being Restricted on TikTok?

The answer is simple – act like a normal person and interact genuinely on TikTok. Don’t set a goal of liking 500 videos daily, for instance.

That’s dishonest behavior that TikTok will punish. Instead, like only those videos that you enjoyed or watched fully.

Don’t comment on every video you watch or see on TikTok. If you don’t feel like a video deserves a like or comment, don’t offer them.

Don’t do anything you don’t feel like doing. Once you start doing this, the TikTok algorithm will ignore you completely.

If you act naturally, you won’t ever get in trouble. Of course, spam isn’t the only breach of conduct on TikTok. There are other, much worse things you can do to get yourself restricted.

In a nutshell, don’t:

  • Post adult content
  • Post violent/brutal/graphic content
  • Be homophobic/racist
  • Bully people
  • Post content that disparages people
  • Threaten somebody to hack or doxx them
  • And much more

Try being a good and reasonable person, and you shouldn’t get in trouble with TikTok!


The like limit on TikTok is 500 per day, most likely. But the limit can change based on how the TikTok algorithm views your interactions on the platform.

It may not restrict you to 500 likes per day or shadowban you when you hit 300, depending on your actions.

There is no single thing that results in a shadowban. Instead, the TikTok algorithm gathers data from multiple interactions and compiles a general profile.
