TikTok may really be banned, but if so, for now only in the US

News spread among tiktokers that the popular social network TikTok will be banned. Presumably, this was demanded by the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump.

Worried that you won’t be able to follow your favourite tiktokers anymore?

No worries. Donald Trump can only influence what is happening in the United States.

Trump is considering banning TikTok because he claims it threatens national security, as TikTok is owned by a Chinese company. The Chinese government is thus said to have access to the data from TikTok users.

Experts say that’s not quite the case, but it’s true that ByteDance had problems with data protection and online security.

It’s also true that the app collects a lot of data. But other social networks also collect a lot of data, although less than TikTok. And it’s also known that foreign countries abuse Facebook and Twitter.

However, there are a few things to keep in mind when using the app. On TikTok, behave like you do in real life.

Check your privacy settings, such as location and permission to access various personal information.

Don’t believe everything you see, and rather check the news in credible media for kids you can trust, like in Časoris.
