If you’re using TikTok and it’s been a while, you may be wondering how to see when you joined TikTok.
It’s obvious at some point to get curious to check the date of signing up to TikTok.
The best way to see exactly when you joined TikTok, is to check your phone’s SMS and or your email inbox for a TikTok welcoming message; Specifically, you need to search for the “TikTok verification” code, that you’ve received upon your sign up.

How To See When You Joined TikTok
To see when you joined TikTok, search on your phone’s SMS for “TikTok” and then find out the first time you got a verification code, which is the date you’ve added your phone number.
Once you type these searches in your email search box, you need to check the oldest email that you received from TikTok.
The emails will include the verification codes that you’ve received.
