Product benefits of TikTok App ID

TikTok App ID will ensure that advertisers have control over their data while also giving access to additional products including:

  • Ability to use non-attributed events for DMP / Audiences without having to get whitelisted (including retargeting). This will result in more options for audience lists and increased optimization signals to improve performance.
  • Get early access from your TikTok sales rep for the following app ad products:
    • App Event Optimization
    • Value Optimization
    • Retargeting
  • See statistics of non-attributed events in Events Manager

    • Please note that even after it has been unlocked, this feature can be locked again if you fall below the threshold.
