TikTok is a popular platform for content creators, and while most users tend to use it on their phones, you can also use TikTok in your web browser.

To use this platform on your smartphone you should download the official application. However, if you want to watch the content on your computer, you can do it from your browser.

Do keep in mind that sometimes issues can occur, and we already covered how to fix TikTok network connection error in a separate guide, so be sure to check it out.

This is incredibly simple to do, and in today’s article, we’ll show you how to do it. Moreover, the functionality is exactly like in the smartphone application and you can log in to your account.

Can you browse TikTok without the app?

Yes, the service is available on multiple platforms, and you don’t have to use the mobile app if you want to browse it.

The service is available as a web app as well, so it can be accessed by anyone easily, and in today’s guide, we’re going to show you how to do that.

How do I use TikTok in my browser?

You can use the in-built video player to watch entertaining content from TikTok, block tracking ads with Adblocker, or get access to various content from other regions using VPN support.

Hence, following TikTok catchy videos can be done more practically from a faster and more secure browser.
