Australian security at risk after TikTok admits user data is accessible in China
Global social media site TikTok has admitted to US senators that user data is accessible in China and Australian data may be less than secure as well.
Tik Tok has previously stated some Australian data is kept in US servers.
Liberal Senator James Paterson wrote to TikTok to request information on Australian users’ data security and has publicly asked them to address concerns.
Mr Paterson asked whether Australian data can be, or has previously been accessed by China-based employees.
The senator told Chris Smith it’s deeply concerning but nothing has yet to be done.
“There hasn’t been any action at all from our new Labor government.”
