In his defense, Tik Tok has shared a tweet on Twitter.

There have been many reports on Tik Tok users stealing personal data information in the past. Now according to a new report, your data on this platform can also be stolen through the in-app keyboard. This news has come from InAppBrowser.com (via PhoneArena).

In this, it has been said that data can also be stolen through the in-app keyboard present on the social media platform. Your data can be stolen through these apps only on the basis of what you are typing. The report also states that large social media apps such as TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram can use JavaScript to access information including your credit card data, home address, passwords, and many more without your consent.

Contrary to what they claim, we do not collect keystrokes.

The report also mentioned that these social media apps can detect what you are typing if you use their in-app keyboard. Out of all these apps, there is one such company that does not allow users to use the default QWERTY keyboard, which is Tik Tok. In other words, you are forced to let your personal data be stolen.

In his defense, Tik Tok shared a tweet on Twitter, which read – “What has been told in the report about Tik Tok is wrong and confusing. Contrary to what they claim, we do not collect keystrokes.” However, according to some other reports, the in-app browser is also dangerous as the company can track almost every stroke on third-party websites through this browser.

What TikTok knows about you

TikTok can gather information when you arrive on the site even if you aren’t signed up, via cookies and other trackers. Once you’ve created an account, the social network collects data about your activities and preferences based on the videos you watch.

TikTok knows the device you are using, your location, IP address, search history, the content of your messages, what you’re viewing, and for how long. It also collects device identifiers to track your interactions with advertisers. TikTok “infers” factors such as your age range, gender, and interests based on the information it has about you. In the US, TikTok can collect biometric information including face and voiceprints.

How TikTok tracks you

On the one hand, TikTok’s privacy policy is quite clear. When you sign up, TikTok asks for your email address or phone number and date of birth. It also collects the content you create even if you don’t end up uploading or saving it, and the associated metadata – the when, where, and who. If you sign in with Facebook, information can be shared with the social network too.

TikTok says it collects text, images, and video from your device’s clipboard if you copy and paste content to or from the app, or share it with a third-party platform.
