Myth vs Facts

TikTok gathers as much data as possible, and the company takes a lax approach to the security of that data.

We have strict data access controls and protections, and these will be enhanced even further by Project Clover, including unprecedented third-party oversight of our data security protocols. TikTok has been adopting a privacy and security-by-design approach when it comes to product roll-outs and the security of user data. When it comes to user data, we limit the types of data we collect, and independent security experts have consistently found that we do not collect any more data than our competitors. We disclose the data that we do collect, how we use it and with whom, and our privacy policies are regularly updated.
