[last day on earth apk]TikTok now plans to collect biometric data of US users
San Francisco: Chinese short-video making app TikTok is now going to collect biometric data of users in the US, including faceprint and voiceprints, as the fate of the Bytedance-owned company remains in limbo in the country.
In the US, couple of states like Illinois, Washington, California, Texas and New York have biometric privacy laws.
Earlier on Thursday, US President Joe Biden expanded a Donald Trump-era ban on Chinese surveillance companies with alleged ties to the military, increasing the number of restricted Chinese firms from 48 to 59.
The new executive order does not include TikTok or its parent company ByteDance. It is still unclear how Biden aims to address the TikTok ban.
In February, TikTok agreed to pay $92 million to settle a class-action lawsuit over privacy violations in the US.
The lawsuit claimed that the platform collected “highly sensitive personal data” to track users and put them to target advertising.
In 2019, TikTok settled a $1.1 million lawsuit over alleged children’s privacy allegations.
In the same year, the company paid $5.7 million to the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over allegations that musical.ly (now called TikTok), failed to gain parental approval for young users.
