TikTok is stealing people’s personal information, revealed in the new report, whether you are too

 

Even after the ban on Tik Tok, its craze among people is still not ending. At the same time, Tik Tok is slowly becoming a controversial social media app. A new report has revealed that the platform app also collects your personal data through the keyboard. This news has been revealed by InAppBrowser.com (Via PhoneArena) which states that the in-app keyboard on the popular social media platform is capable of stealing data based on the data being typed.

Major social media apps like TikTok, Facebook and Instagram

The report states that major social media apps like TikTok, Facebook and Instagram have the ability to use Javascript to grab your credit card data, address, passwords and more without your permission on iOS.

The report states that these social media apps (including Facebook Messenger) can track your keystrokes if you use the in-app keyboard. Notably, out of all these social media applications, one company that does not give users the option of using your default QWERTY keyboard is TikTok. In other words, you are basically stuck with personal data theft in the app keyboard.

Tiktok clarified by sharing the tweet

It is also the reason why the brand came under another US presidential administration who are concerned about national security. While in its defence, TikTok has taken to Twitter to share a tweet, saying that ‘the findings of the report regarding TikTok are false and misleading. Contrary to its claims, we do not collect keystrokes or text input through this code, which is only used for debugging, troubleshooting and performance monitoring.

At the same time, it has also been claimed in different reports that its in-app browser is also quite dangerous because the company can basically track every keystroke on third party websites through this browser.
