Chinese video-sharing platform TikTok has told users that some of its workers in China have access to the data of accounts in the UK and European Union.

The social media giant said the “privacy policy” was “based on a demonstrated need to do their job”.

It has come under scrutiny from authorities around the world, including the UK and US, over concerns data could be passed to the Chinese government.

Earlier this week, a US official called for the app to be banned in America.

    Who knew? Remember - most of the data in most apps is managed so poorly that almost anybody can access it in the org.
