  4. Click the “Start” button and wait for the data to be extracted.
  5. Download your data in JSON, XML, CSV, Excel, or HTML.

Input

The input for TikTok Profile Scraper should be a TikTok profile username (with or without a handle) and a number of videos. You can add one or multiple usernames.

Click on the input tab for a full explanation of an input example in JSON.

1{
2  "profiles": [
3    "olympics"
4  ],
5  "resultsPerPage": 100

If you set resultsPerPage to 30 or lower, the scraper will be significantly faster because it doesn't need to support scrolling.

How many results can you scrape with TikTok Profile scraper?

TikTok Profile scraper can return up to over 2000 results on average. However, you have to keep in mind that scraping tiktok.com has many variables to it and may cause the results to fluctuate case by case. There’s no one-size-fits-all-use-cases number. The maximum number of results may vary depending on the complexity of the input, location, and other factors. Some of the most frequent cases are:

  • website gives a different number of results depending on the type/value of the input
  • website has an internal limit that no scraper can cross
  • scraper has a limit that we are working on improving

Therefore, while we regularly run Actor tests to keep the benchmarks in check, the results may also fluctuate without our knowing. The best way to know for sure for your particular use case is to do a test run yourself.

If you want to scrape specific TikTok data other than profiles, you can use one of the dedicated scrapers below, each built particularly for the relevant TikTok data scraping case, whether it's hashtags, comments, search results, or all data at once:
