Everything seems to be dull without sounds. Especially, videos and if we talk about short content then sound is the key. 

TikTok gives its users a big opportunity to use sounds from its library. If you don’t want to use those sounds from the library then you can use your own sound.

Along with it TikTok gives a feature to add sounds to favourites which you can use later in your videos.

However, because of some reasons you might have lost access to your favourite sounds on TikTok.

How to fix “TikTok Favorite sounds not showing”?

First of all we should know the reason why this happens then we will fix the issue. Let’s see what is causing this problem:

Business Accounts and sounds restrictions on tiktok

This is the main reason which I have found. If your Account is a Business account on TikTok then you will not be able to find your favourite sounds on tiktok because Music on TikTok is Licensed for personal use only. It can’t be used for commercial purposes. 

In meant to protect royalty of copyrighted sounds TikTok automatically limits sounds availability options if the account is business.

Solution to this Problem are:

Switch to the Personal account on tiktok

This is the ideal solution to get the favourite sounds option. Switching to the personal account will resolve this issue but it is not suitable if you have decided to make your tiktok account business forever.

Use Royalty free or sounds with commercial licenses

If you don’t want to switch your account then you will have to look for the royalty free music or you can use sounds having commercial license available.

Copyright issues and sound removal from tiktok

If you are unable to find a specific sound which you had added to your favourite then it is obvious that the sound has been removed from your favourites due to Copyright issues. 

This can happen if you have a personal account because in case of a business account you will not be able to see any favourite sound.
