TikTok has been caught secretly spying on millions of iPhone users. Know how you can protect your data and passwords.
Tiktok can access to your passwords on iPhones
Felix Krause, in his study published by Forbes, has shared that the code integrated by TikTok can access users’ movements on the web, even the passwords as well. It keeps a track of everything users type on their iPhone’s keyboard. Krause said, “From a technical point of view, this is equivalent to installing a keylogger on third-party websites”.
How to protect your passwords?
To protect your passwords and sensitive data, users are advised not to open any link when they are on TikTok. Since TikTok does not allow anyone to open it on another browser, users should copy the link and then paste it manually into another Internet browser- Firefox, Chrome, Edge etc. It is a circuitous way, but it is also the only way to hide your activity from TikTok on iPhones.
