Tik-Tok and US Government Agree Upon A Deal on bringing changes in its data security system
The social media platform Tik-Tok, which is regarded as one of the most well-liked apps in the world and has the greatest number of users in the United States of America, has chosen to enter into an agreement with the nation in which it has committed to making modifications to its data security system. According to reports, the modifications would go into force without ByteDance, the parent company of Tik-Tok, being required to sell it. According to reports, the US has requested that Tik-Parent Tok’s company ByteDance deprive the company of its authority starting in the year 2020 in the US.
The US is concerned that the social media company may be providing China with access to its citizens’ data. Recent worries about the sharing of user data with the US’s enemies were voiced by a US security advisor. According to reports, the social media company and the US government, which have already decided on the majority of the small issues, have not yet decided on some of the significant clauses. A Tik-Tok spokeswoman expressed confidence in being able to properly address all of the legitimate concerns of the administration headed by the US president. Both the White House and Tik-parent Tok’s firm, ByteDance, have yet to make an official statement about the situation.
Concerning about Data
The People’s Republic of China was able to get private user data, the deputy security advisor had earlier claimed, allowing it to compile a dossier on its inhabitants. The former US deputy security advisor expressed regret that, despite being aware of the Chinese data leak, the US government did nothing. The security consultant also stated that the Chinese have been stealing data for more than ten years.
The greater ability of China to hack the 5G network has raised concerns from the US security advisor as well. According to reports, Chinese hackers have launched many cyberattacks against the US. The country’s espionage attack is the first of its kind in history, according to the security advisor. He also said that the Chinese offensive is calculated, challenging to comprehend, and fierce. More than 300 million people actively use Tik-Tok, which debuted in 2006. More than 500 million daily subscribers use the social networking app in the USA, where it has been downloaded 80 million times. TikTok’s growth depends on the promotion and endorsement of regional content.
