TikTok appears to be installed, yet I've not installed it

My daughter sent me a link to a Tic Tok video, and when I clicked on it, I fully expected it to open in Safari, as I do not have Tic Tok installed on my iPhone. However, by all appearances it appears that Tic Tok is installed on my device. How can this possibly be, when I’ve not downloaded nor installed it? When I go to the App Store, Tic Tok shows as a never installed, downloadable option.

Can anyone understand what’s going on?

App Clip?

My understanding is it would show under Settings > App Clips.



Go A’s! - Thanks you’re 100% correct! Thank you for this. I’d completely forgotten about it
