people do not explicitly "put there" their contact lists, contents of their SMS and email messages, list of installed applications on their phones, their Wi-Fi access point name and MAC address including all neighboring Wi-Fi access points, and so on.

if an app presents itself as "share your video with the world" but reveals as "share your private information with us" then it's malpractice at least and espionage at most.

TikTok privacy policy and info they collect is extensively disclosed in the link below, it's not a secret...

Tiktok IS an National Security risk as it runs a proxy server on users' phones, allowing chinese hackers to hack anything while hiding their identities behind these users, i.e. using american IP addre

Recall, if you can, when Republicans and Trump were all up in arms over the number of executive orders Obama gave and what a horrible overstep of authority that was and spelled doom for the republic.

No one's listening Trump.  Stomp your feet more and hold your breath.  Who knows what color he will turn.

Read the text before you click "OK" would help.

Sorry I don’t see much of evidence and this not peer reviewed by other developers. I will reserve my judgement if this just another political expediency. 

Actually, it was one guy in India (redditor) by the name of Bangorlol who came up with the news. Now: India is currently whipping up a bit of anti-China sentiment, and there were lots of reports of Chinese apps being banned in India because of [reasons]. Yep, so much for facts.

They made their mark by humiliating Trump over attendance at his failed rally and they’ve been signing up to vote at a rather encouraging rate.

An American company would be able to remove all the sticky gooey spyware and make is safe. 

 

... as if China stealing trillions of dollars of intellectual property is 'fair' business. Lol.

Wrong. An American company would insert its own sticky gooey spyware and leave the safety in dreamland. You may have read reports that in Germany, government researchers have found nil in ways of spyware or other unwanted stuff in Huawei gear, but ample amounts of such in Cisco gear. Go figure... (no please, don't - the mob judge has spoken, hang the Chinese high...)
