As a result, it has been proven that these websites are free of such information collection. Officials of “Tik-Tok” responded to questions about this: “We do not collect user information. The purpose of the code on TikTok is not to collect information. Currently, this research report is playing a role in clarifying many people’s understanding of “Tik Tok”.
