Tik Tube App - Is it a Scam?

When it comes to making money online you have to always be wary of scams. It is always a good rule of thumb to look for reviews or comments about an app or website you're looking to make money from before sinking any time into it.

This time around I'm looking at Tik Tube, an app that claims that you can make $500 by watching some 30 ads! Is Tik Tube a scam or is it legit? Let's see!

What is Tik Tube?

Tik Tube is a free "early access" Android app that can be downloaded from the Google Play store.

Tik Tube plays short videos from Youtube Shorts and makes claims in its advertising campaigns that you can earn hundreds just by watching these videos.

So does it? Let's answer that right away.

Note: There are two "Tik Tube" apps, the second goes under the same name, just without the space - "TikTube". They are virtually the same app.

Is Tik Tube Legit?

Tik Tube is not legit. Tik Tube is a fake cash app that goes as far as trying to scam you out of your money so you can get your cash "reward" - which you won't receive.

Straight from the outset, the claim of watching 30 short youtube videos for $500 is way too good to be true, and it is. You can easily rack up the 5000 needed points for the money, it took me about 10 minutes or less.

It is important to note that you don't actually even need to watch the videos. The only thing that generates points is watching advertising - this is because advertising is the only way the developers make money. The short videos are merely a distraction.

When you go to redeem your points it asks you for your account information. You can write whatever you like in this box because it won't validate it, and it makes sense because they don't intend on actually paying you anyway.

The next screen is really what makes it clear that it is a scam, it will ask you to watch another 20 videos in the next 24hrs or your payout will be invalidated.

Alternatively, they ask you to pay them instead! (Please don't) $1.99 to get your supposed money, money which will never come.

Sadly though some have fallen victim to this app and paid their "servicing fee" only to learn they've been scammed.

Tips to Spot a Fake

How can you spot fake earning/cash apps? Keep some of these points in mind when you're looking to try out a new app.

  • Check it's not an "Early Access" app. Early Access is a feature for app developers to get private feedback. This is perfect for scams as reviews are hidden.
  • High payouts for little effort. Almost all legit GPT apps do not pay much. If an app claims to pay hundreds or thousands you can definitely consider it a fake.
  • Check TrustPilot or search reviews. Unless the app only just came out, it's more than likely someone has said something about it. Check for reviews on popular, trustworthy websites. Don't automatically trust positive Google Play reviews, fake reviews are often purchased by scammers.
  • Asking for Credit Cards or purchases. If an app is designed to make you money, it should not be asking you to pay them instead.
  • Check the developer's credibility. If you can, check what other apps the developers have made and the reviews on them.

If you get stuck wondering if an app is legit or fake, the best choice is to just uninstall it and try something else.
