Is Tiktok Safe To Use?

Since people all over the world are currently staying at home, they are turning to apps like Tiktok to entertain themselves and their followers. But Tiktok is not just a free was to have some fun. It is also spyware because it uses a "fingerprinting" technology (a combination of audio and browser tracking) to determine which users are watching and sharing a video on the app and on the web.

Using social media is already risky due to privacy issues. Kids should not use them without adult supervision. To maintain your privacy we suggest against using Tiktok, at least until their privacy policy changes.
