Estonian IT authority warns officials to avoid TikTok over data security issues

Estonia’s Information System Authority has required its workers not to have the popular Chinese video streaming app TikTok on their smartphovnes over data security concerns.

The Estonian Information System Authority has also sent a similar warning to other state institutions and ministries calling on them to consider banning the app from official smart devices.

As to specific security concerns, Tammer pointed out that the app collects a large amount of information from the phone and from the phone’s internal data – any applications in use and in some cases GPS is also used.
