TikTok  Chinese-owned video-sharing app have informed users that some of its employees there have access to user data in the UK and the EU

Users have been informed by the Chinese-owned video-sharing site TikTok that some of its employees there have access to information on accounts in the UK and the EU.

The “privacy policy” was “based on a demonstrated requirement to do their work,” according to the social media behemoth.

Authorities from all around the world, including those in the UK and the US, have been looking into it because of worries that data could be sent to the Chinese government.

A US official demanded that the software be prohibited in the US earlier this week.

According to TikTok, “the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland” are covered by the policy.

The platform’s head of privacy for Europe, Elaine Fox, said in a statement on Wednesday that a global team worked to provide “uniform, pleasurable” user experiences.
