TikTok links are becoming increasingly popular for social media users who want to share their content with friends and followers. While you can easily share a video link from the app, many users don’t know how to open a TikTok link in an external browser or on other devices. Fortunately, there is an easy way to do this that only takes a few steps.

Opening a TikTok link in an external browser is simple and straightforward. First, you need to copy the link from the TikTok app. Then, paste it into the desired web browser of your choice (such as Chrome or Safari). Finally, hit ‘Enter’ and the link should open without any problems.

You can also open TikTok links on other devices such as Xbox or PlayStation consoles. To do this, you need to use a web browser app such as Microsoft Edge. When viewing the link in Messages on these devices, long press it for several seconds until a menu with different options appears. From there, select ‘Open Link in TikTok’ and the link should open without any problems.

If you experience problems opening TikTok links, clearing your phone’s cache memory may help resolve the issue quickly and efficiently. Clearing cached data will free up space on your phone and allow apps like TikTok to function properly again. To clear your cache memory: go to settings > apps > select TikTok > storage > clear data/clear cache > confirm the action by tapping “OK” when prompted.

opening links from TikTok is relatively easy if you follow these simple steps outlined above. Whether you are using an external web browser or another device like Xbox or PlayStation consoles – simply copy-paste the link into whichever browser you prefer and hit ‘Enter’ – then watch your favorite videos right away!

Can You Open a TikTok Link Without the App?

Yes, you can open a TikTok link without the app. To do so, you’ll need to use a web browser like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, or Firefox. From there, simply copy and paste the link into the address bar and hit ‘enter’. You’ll be taken directly to the video page where you can watch the video without needing to download or sign up for an account. Keep in mind that if you’re using a desktop computer, you won’t be able to access some of the features available on mobile devices such as commenting and liking videos.

Opening TikTok Links in Safari

To open a TikTok link in Safari, first, tap and hold the link in Messages. This should open a menu with different options for accessing the link. Select the option to open the link in Safari. The link should then automatically open in your default web browser. If you do not see this option, you can copy the URL of the link and paste it into Safari’s address bar to access it directly.

Troubleshooting TikTok Link Issues

There are a few reasons why your TikTok link may not be opening. It could be that the link is broken or outdated, or it could be an issue with the app itself. If the link is broken, it simply won’t work and you’ll need to get a new one from the source. If the issue is with the app, it’s likely due to a corrupted cache of data, which can prevent TikTok from loading properly. The best way to fix this is to clear the cache data on your phone. You can do this by going into your phone’s settings and finding the option for clearing cached data under storage or application settings. Once you’ve done this, try reloading your TikTok link and see if it works.


In conclusion, it is possible to browse TikTok and watch videos without an account or app by visiting the TikTok website. Additionally, users can even open TikTok links in Messages with a simple long press on the link. However, if “TikTok not working” is encountered due to corrupted cache data or too much space being used, the best solution is to clear the cache data on your phone. Overall, this provides an easy way for anyone to watch videos on TikTok without needing an account or app.
