Without a doubt, you’ve seen the TikTok videos popping up across every social media platform during the national quarantine.
Maybe you’ve made one yourself, or you have employees or friends making them. After all, they help pass the time.
But as it turns out, TikTok is owned and operated by Communist Chinese party members. Assume they DON’T abide by security regulations in the United States…
Which led the United States Department of Defense to warn Americans not to use the app, stating that TIKTOK has the ability to “convey location, image and biometric data to its Chinese parent company, which is legally unable to refuse to share data to the Chinese government”.
Apparently, TikTok has the ability to track EVERYTHING you do on your phone…not just inside the app itself, but down to your keystrokes, the other apps you’re using, and even your data (content you post and more).
Especially since everyone you work with is at home using their personal devices to access and move company data – and they’re sitting next to their TIKTOK-ADDICTED TEENAGERS…
We assume, if an app is available in the app store, it’s ok to use it… don’t be fooled. TikTok is claiming that they’ve resolved the security issue. The Department of Defense isn’t taking them at their word.
Make sure you know the location of your data, who is accessing it, and from where!
