What information does TikTok collect from the phone? In this video, we explain what the TikTok confidentiality agreement imposes on us. Our new series, where we share the privacy agreements of popular applications, is starting. We convey to you what information mobile applications, which have a large number of users around the world, receive from us.
TikTok for parents! TikTok is a social media application that allows users to watch and post 60-second videos. While the videos on the TikTok platform are generally harmless, keep in mind that this is an open social media platform.
Is TikTok stealing information?
It turns out that TikTok has sold almost every information about us to the Chinese Government and thousands of companies. Your personal information, messages, photos… All of them may be in the hands of TikTok, the companies it sells to, and the government.
You are walking towards your house in the evening. While crossing the street, someone suddenly grabs his arm and says, “It’s free to cross the street, but for this I need to find out the address of your house, read your messages on the phone, look at all the photos in your gallery.” The intention of the other person is obviously not good. What would your reaction be?
Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Google apps… All of these are just like the person who stops you in the middle of the road. They demand information about you in exchange for something free. Most of us approve these requests with the “Accept” button that appears when installing the application. We give all of our secrets that we wouldn’t have if he wanted to on the way, to the world’s largest companies to use free applications. These companies also show us tailored, targeted ads with the information they receive. Now keep all this in mind and focus on one word: TikTok.
The main source of the information in the news is the details reached and explained by a Reddit user named “bangorlol”. All the information expressed in the rest of the news is not certain, as no official statement has been made from the TikTok front yet. However, an important part of what was told was also confirmed by Reddit users in different parts of the world. There is also visual evidence.
