1. What data does TikTok gather?

 Apart from TikTok Video, you watch, and the duration of the watch videos,  it has the full contents privacy messages you can also send via the app.

According to U.S privacy policy, says it gather your location, internet address and the type of device you are using. If you also allow it, it will grab your exact location, phone contacts and other social media connections, like age and phone number.

With other information related to your profile not only for useful ads targets. But to know exactly who you are, you’re friends, family, what you like and what make you laugh and share with your friends.

2. Is TikTok better or worse than Facebook?

In other hands, TikTok gathers fewer data compared to Facebook. Facebook tracks users across their devices websites or other apps. They can even track you even when your phone is off. But there is nothing close to that on TikTok.

3. How to reduce your privacy risk and keep using TikTok

There is a TikTok privacy setting called “personalized ads” this will allow you to stop the app from accessing your information to target you with ads. But this setting will not stop Tiktok from collecting your data in the first place.

In my opinion: it is not ideal to give TikTok your privacy like your real name, access to your contacts or other social network connection.

You can also access TikTok without giving it your phone number or email by never logging in. but can still watch videos in the app on the web, though you would not be able to upload videos or follow the account. But TikTok can still know information about your device.
