TikTok is being investigated by France’s data watchdog

A French data protection authority (CNIL) now has an open investigation into the TikTok. CNIL investigates how the app handles user data in May 2020, following a complaint related to a request to delete a video.

Complaint-triggered investigation into TikTok has since widened to include issues related to transparency requirements about how it processes user data; users’ data access rights; transfers of user data outside the EU; and steps the platform takes to ensure the data of minors is adequately protected — a key issue, given the app’s popularity with teens.
