In this article, I’m going to help you guys learn what to do if you cannot like videos on TikTok. Well, there are times when you are on your TikTok and suddenly you cannot like any more videos.
Even the app may keep telling you that you are likening too many videos or “you’re tapping too fast. Take a break.”

If this happens to your TikTok account it’s easy to solve the error so let’s get into it right away.

Why do I see “You’re tapping too fast. Take a break” on TikTok?

The reason that this happens to your TikTok is that you’ve liked many videos in a short period of time.
In some ways, TikTok works like Instagram. It has some algorithms that catch any unhuman-like or unnatural behavior. So any crazy or unnatural behavior will be detected by the app.

For example, If you go to someone’s or a random account and scroll down through all or many videos of that account and like every single one of them, then TikTok will definitely recognize you as a bot.
As a matter of fact, TikTok will restrict your account. So your ability to like videos will be disabled for a while.
Another reason that this error happens is that you do not watch videos fully. Actually, you just scroll down many videos and like them all.
Also if you have recently signed up in TikTok be careful not to violate any laws. TikTok algorithms may think you are a bot so it will penalize you. But if your account is old then TikTok may go easy on you. It will restrict your ability to like after much unnatural behavior compared to a newer account.

How long does the error last?

If you bump into this problem don’t worry this will only last for a while maybe for 24 hours or so.
You should be able to like videos again after a while but if you keep liking many videos then TikTok will even disable your abilities to like for a longer period of time.
