Experts Warn That TikTok Puts Kids’ Privacy At Risk

Privacy watchdogs in the U.S. say the popular TikTok video app is violating a children’s privacy law and putting kids at risk. The Chinese-owned company was slapped with a $5.7-million-dollar FTC fine last year over child-privacy law violations. But the watchdogs say in a complaint filed with American regulators that TikTok is still collecting personal information of kids under 13 without their parents’ consent. TikTok says it takes privacy seriously.
