Tik Tok: China has not requested user data

Short video app Tiktok recently released its first “transparency report”, which contains the number of user information the app received from the government in the first half of 2019. However, this is surprising.

From January 1, 2019 to June 30, 2019, India was the most requested country according to the report, requesting 107 requests for a total of 143 accounts and (Tik Tok) provided information about these requests. Some information in two. The United States again received 79 orders for 255 accounts. The company said it has responded to about 86% of these requests. It is surprising in the report that he did not mention China at all, which means that he did not receive any requests from China, which is surprising.

"We take these requirements very seriously and we will carefully review every request received to determine whether it meets the required requirements, for example, the legal process or the content that They violate applicable law. ”He added,“ Tik Tok strives to help enforce the law when necessary, while respecting the privacy and rights of our users. ”

For security reasons, the "Tik Tok" report coincided with the US military embargo. The app belongs to the Chinese technology company ByteDance and was written last October by a US official (Joseph Maguire), director of National Intelligence-Tik Tok and other Chinese companies, the application was considered. Look for possible security risks.

Tik Tok has announced that it will continue to send the Transparency Report regularly covering the second half of 2019, which will be released in the coming months.

ByteDance insists that US user data be stored in the U.S., but the company must continue to comply with Chinese law.
