Shocking News: TikTok is requesting sensitive personal data from iPhone users, sparking concern and outrage

TikTok’s iPhone Passcode Request Causes Concern

TikTok users with an iPhone are expressing concern after the short-form video app started asking for their iPhone passcode before allowing them to use the app. This request has led to worries about the security of personal data.

Reports suggest that the app’s request for the passcode may be linked to a software bug, as some users have claimed that the constant passcode requests stopped after they installed the latest version of the iOS TikTok app. However, others have reported that the update did not resolve the issue, causing them to change passwords on important apps out of concern for their security.

In response to the situation, some users have considered deleting the TikTok app and reinstalling it, with some believing this action resolved the problem. Others have claimed that they were able to continue with their TikTok session by tapping the cancel button instead of entering their passcode.

Despite the concerns, it is recommended that users remain calm and try tapping the cancel button if prompted for their iPhone passcode. If that does not work, updating to the latest version of TikTok may help resolve the issue. If all else fails, users can contact ByteDance in California for assistance.

It is important for TikTok users to take the necessary steps to ensure the security of their personal data and to address any concerns they may have about the app’s request for their iPhone passcode.
