TikTok on Trial for Unauthorized Collection of Child Data

TikTok, which has become more popular lately, may have faced another punishment. TikTok, who was fined $ 5.7 million for collecting children’s information without permission in the United States, is now under investigation in the UK.

Recently, the company was fined for unauthorized stealing of child users’ information, and was also investigated in the UK for the same charge. Again, it seems like a big fine against TikTok.

In a speech to the parliamentary committee last Tuesday, UK Information Commission official Elizabeth Denham said that the popular video sharing practice violates the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) laws, which state that technology companies should have different rules and protections for children. TikTok was also fined in February by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission).

Among the concerns listed by Denham, TikTok‚Äôs open messaging platform allowed adults and young children to talk freely. Ham We’re looking at the app’s completely open messaging system and the types of videos that are collected and shared by children. We have an active research on TikTok right now.. If the United Kingdom considers TikTok to be inaccurate, it will be fined 4 percent or $ 22.6 million in revenue.
