Don't want it or use it so I don't have an opinion. Seems shady though.

I also read that federal employees and their families are being made to uninstall. Chinese spying aside, I have always been disturbed by the amount of children who use it, especially my little niece. I would love for it to disappear.

I'm under the assumption that there are apps that "spy" on you being utilized by most major countries. There are apps out there that can back door your phone, activate your mic/camera and save the files hidden, and then upload the files when a connection is reestablished. I'm told china has this technology, but we were never given a specific app to watch out for.

It wouldnt surprise me that tiktok specifically provides data to the chinese government. Cyber warfare is the big thing ATM for every major country. It's just easier when people WILLINGLY give up personal information instead of trying to social engineer the information out of them.

Is it any different from the information willingly given up by people on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat?
