TikTok Videos – Privacy
The privacy concerns are rising from the fact that TikTok is accused of collecting – and utilizing – user’s private data, such as geographical locations and personal info, without any official consent.
TikTok Under Examination for Privacy Breaching Concerns
The U.S. army has recently started a meticulous assessment of the TikTok privacy and security settings; the Chinese app for Android, Ipad and iPhone is going to be under fire for obtaining the user’s private data without asking for permission! Governments around the world, especially the U.S. government, aren’t happy nor satisfied with the way TikTok is handling the online rights of users. TikTok isn’t of course the only social media app accused of breaching user’s right to online privacy; Facebook and Instagram have been facing similar accusations too.
The fears are generally stemming from the allegations that TikTok may be sharing the collected data with other parties – such as the Chinese government. However, the company previously assured that its musical app is completely independent from any official authorities. Nevertheless, TikTok officials didn’t respond, as of yet, to the recent privacy scrutiny of the app.
