n the following clip, China-In-Focus’ Tiffany Meier sat down with Casey Fleming, CEO of intelligence and security strategy firm BlackOps Partners. He sheds light on the recent reports that TikTok can monitor keystrokes, what kind of information TikTok is getting, and what the Chinese regime can do with that.“What people need to understand is that TikTok is a military application. It’s a weaponized espionage application to get every bit of information they possibly can off the phone, which they do – your whereabouts, how you go about your day, your access to other people, access to technology, intellectual property, and things that you can be blackmailed on, and so on.
So people need to understand that TikTok is a weaponized military application in the hands of our middle schoolers, our kids, our high school kids, and our young adults.”
He added the Chinese regime “can use that information really, number one, the most important thing is to steal intellectual property. Secondly, to blackmail. Thirdly, it’s a propaganda platform.”
You can see all these TikTok challenges, and most of them are very dangerous to our children – to steal cars, to do challenges … we’ve lost a lot of kids to these TikTok challenges that come up about once a month.
