Ex-FBI Official Says TikTok Poses Security Threat To U.S.

A former FBI official believes TikTok poses a threat to national security. Former FBI Assistant Director Kevin Brock says TikTok tracks data that its parent company is required by law to report to the Chinese government.

He says that data can be used

to find vulnerabilities in our society.

This week, members of Congress introduced a bill that would ban TikTok in the U.S., while several states have banned use of the app in government buildings.

Do you think TikTok poses a ‘threat’ to the U.S.?  What steps do you take to protect your data online?
