TikTok is not tied with the China says COO

Published on 18.09.2022

US lawmakers are afraid of data leaking to the Chinese government. The roots of TikTok come from the Chinese company that was sold in the USA a few years ago. Two days ago, the COO of the app gave testimony to explain how TikTok keeps data safe from the Chinese government.

 

What the COO of TikTok said in the Senate

TikTok Chief Operating Officer Vanessa Pappas testified in the Senate. Pappas said that TikTok is a "positive force" in the world and is not controlled by the Chinese government. Pappas also said that TikTok does not share user data with the Chinese government and that the company would not do so in the future. Pappas's testimony came as senators considered banning TikTok in the United States over national security concerns. Check the video below - Forbes had a very interesting summary of the COO's testimony. 

 

Can TikTok leak data to China?

According to TikTok Chief Operating Officer Vanessa Pappas, the company does not share user data with the Chinese government and will not do so in the future. This is reassuring to users in the United States concerned about their data being shared with a foreign government. However, it is essential to note that ByteDance, a Chinese company, owns TikTok. This means that the Chinese government could potentially pressure ByteDance into sharing user data. If you are concerned about sharing your data with the Chinese government, you may consider using a different social media platform.

 

How could App data be leaked?

One of the most common ways to leak app data is through unsecured API calls. When an app makes an API call, it sends data over the network to a server. This data can be intercepted by a third party, such as a hacker, who can access the app's data. Another way that app data can be leaked is through insecure storage on the device. If an app stores its data in an unsecured location on the device, such as the SD card, someone can gain access to this data. Finally, app data can also be leaked through vulnerabilities in the code of the app itself. If an attacker can find a flaw in the code, they may be able to exploit it to gain.
