TikTok Denies Breach After Hacker Claims ‘2 Billion Data Records’ Stolen
Popular social media platform TikTok is denying allegations of a data breach just weeks after security researchers uncovered a serious vulnerability in the app that could have exposed users to a 1-click takeover exploit. The issue affected Android users and has since been patched by TikTok. However, reports began circulating that the platform had been hacked over the holiday weekend. A TikTok spokesperson stated that no evidence of a security breach had been detected, however, they did urge users to change their passwords and enable two-factor authentication.
