Is TikTok Really A Spy App?

Thanks to Sajith who asked such a great question and gave a chance to us to answer on such an great topic. To answer this question we done lot of research, and created some facts so that you and me can come on point whether its safe to use TikTok or not? So, let’s come to the point and let’s start with the fact number one:

Allowing Gallery Access:

Yes, whenever you allow TikTok to access your gallery data, might be your privacy is gone. Because as per the research, whenever you allow any app to access your gallery, that app gets access to write new photos/images to your Camera Roll and to read all your photos on the device in an unencrypted form. Which means your privacy has gone and data is no longer secure.

But also it depends on the app developer mindset what they wanted to do after getting your gallery access or location access or any other access.

If you agree with us on this fact, we recommend you to after completing your work tiktok exit the application and go to settings and turn off all the permission to that application.
