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).
