TikTok is Collecting Your Biometric Data

TikTok tweaked its U.S. privacy policy last week to say it could collect "biometric identifiers and biometric information" like "faceprints and voiceprints" from your videos. The video-based social app will ask for permission where required by law, the policy notes.

Only a few states have biometric privacy laws. California, Illinois, New York, Texas, and Washington, which may mean TikTok doesn't have to ask permission from people in other states.


"As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency, we recently updated our privacy policy to provide more clarity on the information we may collect and how it's used," a TikTok spokesperson said. In February, TikTok agreed to pay $92 million to settle a lawsuit that alleged the app captured biometric and private data from users in the U.S. and passed private user data on to third parties.
