TikTok Caught Breaking Google Rules To Secretly Track Android Users—Report
According to the report, TikTok’s data was also protected by an “unusual” layer of encryption. The allegations against the social media platform are likely linked to advertising. The incident draws parallels with a previous customer privacy breach in which TikTok was able to access users’ clipboards caught by Apple’s iOS 14 beta. The report also exposes the fact that the app lacks sufficient cybersecurity standards that a platform of its size and reach should contain. The report states that TikTok stopped this practice last November.
