Launched in 2018, the TikTok application quickly dominated the global market. The TikTok app has created a new build that allows creators to create and upload short-form videos.
Thanks to this structure, users can shoot short videos and publish them quickly. Because the system is built on a stream, many videos uploaded to the application reach a large audience.
While the success of TikTok cannot be denied, this application, especially the recent emergence of security vulnerabilities, has caused many countries to ban TikTok.
Many countries, especially the USA and India, intervened in the application on the grounds that TikTok breached data and leaked information.
TikTok Image and Sound Information section said in a statement; ” The company may collect information about the images and voices of users in order to identify the presence and location of persons. Facial and body features and attributes, and the nature of the voice and user may need transcripts of the words spoken in your content.” Immediately after the announcement, TikTok reported that it will use this state to enable video effects.
TikTok Doesn’t Explain Why It Needs Biometric Data!
Biometric information such as a person’s fingerprint, voice or face is extremely sensitive and personal data. If an app or website wants to collect it, there must be a good reason. At least at the moment TikTok has not made any new notification on this subject.
