Tik Tok and the data that this program collects from your phone
The famous Chinese application TikTok faced accusations from the United States of America of collecting user data, and this was described by White House officials as a potential threat to national security.
The application Tik Tok is very popular and used by millions of people around the world. The American authorities are concerned that TikTok will deliver this data to the Chinese authorities, who may impose censorship or restrictions on the content that is disturbing them.
For its part, the company denied the accusations and said that it will not share user data with the Chinese government even if requested to do so.
Here, you can ask what data does the program collect on the user?
1 - All messages and texts that you write on the program, even after you delete them from the program, do not think that they have been removed permanently, as they remain present and saved on the company's database, but you as a user see that they have been deleted, and this is the case for all social media programs without exception.
2 - Everything that the user touches on the screen from swiping up or down or even pressing any button on the screen, all of these events are registered with the companies of social media programs, and it is strange that these companies have not yet explained what is the reason for that!
3 - Everything about the user's device details, including the device type, model, time zone and location, including what requires permission to access files stored on the device.
4 - The contacts that are synchronized on the program are recorded on the company's database, and this is done based on the permission of the user who thinks the matter is normal and not dangerous, so the program gives permission to access the contacts in order to synchronize them to reach his friends on the program.
5 - User interests, as the Tik Tok program identifies the user's interests so that he can display the appropriate proposed content for him like other social media platforms that give suggestions or display advertisements according to the interests of the user.
A TikTok spokesman said that they are very pleased with this agreement with Oracle and Walmart as it will solve the security concerns of the US administration, and end the debate about the future of TikTok in the United States of America.
He added that Oracle will be the reliable technical provider responsible for hosting the data of all users of the program TikTok in the United States of America and securing the computing system associated with it to ensure that the requirements of US national security are met.
As US President Donald Trump described this wonderful agreement and gave his blessing with this deal, after the United States of America banned the program .
