The problems first appeared in parts of the United States and the United Kingdom, but quickly affected users around the world.
Users share the issues on Twitter, with many noting that all of their tastes are gone, while others believe TikTok has been officially banned.
Others have reported problems logging into their accounts or even the complete loss of their profile.

Although all likes have disappeared, users still have comments left by other members.
Rumors that the popular app has been closed have been circulating on the web for years.

However, the Chinese firm has been criticized as a threat to national security in the United States.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday that the United States is considering banning TikTok.
Pompeo told Laura Ingram of Fox News that he and President Trump agreed that the app would collect data from users’ cell phones and then share the information directly with Beijing “very seriously”.
Pompeo made comments when asked whether the U.S. should consider banning Chinese social media apps, especially TikTok.
“When it comes to Chinese applications on people’s cell phones, I can assure you that the United States will succeed,” said Pompeo.
“I don’t want to go out in front of the president [Donald Trump], but it’s something we’re looking at.
The Washington diplomat added that Americans should only download the application “if you want your private information to be in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party.”
