Extract data from TikTok videos, hashtags, and users. Use URLs or search queries to scrape TikTok profiles, hashtags, posts, URLs, shares, followers, hearts, names, video, and music-related data. Export scraped data, run the scraper via API, schedule and monitor runs or integrate with other tools.

What does TikTok Scraper do?

Our unlimited TikTok scraper lets you supercharge your extraction of TikTok data. This powerful unofficial TikTok API will give you TikTok data at scale to be used in your own data projects, business reports, and as a basis for new applications. TikTok Scraper allows you to scrape:

  • All results from chosen hashtags including details: top videos, timestamps, view, share, comment, and video count, etc.
  • All posts from chosen user profiles including details: name, nickname, ID, bio, followers/following numbers, play, share and comment count, etc.
  • Individual video posts by using specific video URLs.
  • Video- and music-related data.

How many results can you scrape with TikTok scraper?

TikTok scraper can return between 400 and 3000 results on average (about 400-800 for scraping hashtags and about 3000 for videos from profiles). 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鈥檚 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.

How much will scraping TikTok cost you?

When it comes to scraping, it can be challenging to estimate the resources needed to extract data as use cases may vary significantly. That's why the best course of action is to run a test scrape with a small sample of input data and limited output. You鈥檒l get your price per scrape, which you鈥檒l then multiply by the number of scrapes you intend to do.

Watch this video for a few helpful tips. And don't forget that choosing a higher plan will save you money in the long run. For the most predictable pricing, you might want to opt for our TikTok Data Extractor which can scrape 1,000 results for $4.00.
