There are two main answers to why TikTok deleted your account, which I’ve brought for you below:

Tiktok was punished by FTC and was forced to pay $5.7M due to violating child privacy laws, and that is why it is randomly deleting lots of accounts which do not qualify with its new restrictions.

After the recent FTC settlement, which has forced TikTok to change their terms in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, or COPPA, users who fall under the minimum age requirement will now have to get parental approval for creating an account on TikTok.

So if TikTok suddenly deleted your account, you might be under 13 years old, or you might have entered the wrong birthdate.

Another reason for an account to get deleted is the violation of terms. That can include things like posting copyrighted content, spam, hate speech, or pornographic videos. I cannot say for sure what was the reason you got your account deleted, but you should see some explanation when you try to log back into the account.
