TikTok Authorization and Authentication Updates - September 2023
TikTok is making changes around their authorization and authentication flow for their Accounts API this September and deprecating their 1.0 flow.
As Sprout Social prepares for these changes and to unlock more feature functionality for you, it is critical that you reauthorize any connected TikTok profiles in Sprout to avoid losing any data before September 22, 2023.
If you don't reauthorize your profiles by September 22, 2023 your TikTok profiles will be fully disconnected from Sprout and you'll have to reconnect each profile. This can cause gaps in reporting and publishing.
To reauthorize your TikTok profiles in Sprout, either use the following directions or follow the in-app popup messages to complete the reauthorization:
- Click in the right-side panel.
- Click Issues.
- Click Learn More on the notification informing you that your profile is disconnected or will disconnect in a certain number of days.
- Click Reauthorize to go to the network where the profile is disconnected. You might need to enter your login details. After that, you are redirected back to Sprout and the notification disappears.
