Multiple tech, government and other private entities have sounded the alarm on TikTok for quite some time now.

It's a front for the CCP, and it is well known to be capturing all sorts of personal data as well as keystrokes and password/authentication data. Use it at your own risk!

[quote]TikTok app permissions include personal information and device control

First, our researchers examined the permissions TikTok requires on Android and iOS devices following installation. While some of the permissions detailed below are to be expected, all of this is consistent with TikTok鈥檚 written privacy policy. However, when you see all that TikTok gathers it can still be of concern. In summary, these permissions allow TikTok to:

Access the camera (and take pictures/video), the microphone (and record sound), the device鈥檚 WIFI connection, and the full contact list on the device
Determine if the internet is available and access it
Keep the device turned on and automatically start itself when the device restarts
Secure detailed information on the user鈥檚 location using GPS and other apps that are running
Read and write to the device鈥檚 storage, install/remove shortcuts, access the flashlight (turn it off and on), request additional installation packages

It鈥檚 more to do with the Chinese owners of Tik tok having access to all your user information.
You can learn a persons age, geolocation and just about anything else you want from the information that can be stored about that person. You can get enough information about a user on Tik tok to steal their identity and sell that info or commit a crime using that persons name and personal details.

@checkoutanytime he鈥檚 an adult. That鈥檚 his choice. He may be in for a world of PR pain though.
@justanothername hes a traitor to the Union, and should be forced to recind his Cintizenship. We do not negotiate with fucking commies, period!

@checkoutanytime Never mind the traitor bs. I just call it a dumb move.

China is not the bad guy
@Tres13 the imperialist central banks are. Anything that is centralized is inadequate of transparency.

@checkoutanytime Kinda like Trump who is allergic to transperancy.
@justanothername he spoke honestly every evening like a president of the modern age would, i have to honorably disagree with that motion.
