Friday night the Twitterverse was buzzing with President Trump’s threat to ban the TikTok app. Liberals were, of course, furious. India has already banned TikTok and Japan is considering banning it as well.
The reason? TikTok is owned by the Chicoms and is basically Chinese spyware/malware.
The threat to national security posed by TikTok is so real that the U.S. military last year banned the use of the app on government-issued devices.
How much of security threat is using TikTok?
For starters, it’s owned by the Chicoms.
Second: The app uses facial recognition technology and is storing user’s facial geometry.
Third: The app violates children privacy laws (which is the majority of users). TikTok paid a $5.7 million fine to the FTC in 2019 over collecting personal information from kids under 13, a violation of the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
From what I’ve read online, this app collects more data from a phone than any other app does including IP addresses, contacts, browsing histories and unique device identifiers.
Lastly: It’s owned by the Chicoms.
Of course, the Chicoms deny any wrongdoing in anything to do with TikTok.
Yet anyone with a functioning brain, Google and who is not TDS-infected can figure out what is really going on with the Chicoms and TikTok.
Unless you are a CNN “national security analyst.”
Meet Samantha Vinograd, an American foreign policy commentator who serves as National Security Analyst at CNN. In 2005,Vinograd graduated with a B.A. in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Pennsylvania and received an M.A. in Security Studies from Georgetown University.
Guess that “Asian” studies degree excluded the history of China and the political/intelligence warfare they have waged against the US for a very long time, as witnessed by this tweet:
