“TikTok poses an unacceptable national security risk due to its extensive data harvesting being combined with Beijing’s apparently unchecked access to that sensitive data.” – Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

@aral knowing that the same wrong is done in the US does not right, or even negate the wrong being done by TikTok/China.

No data collection without clear, opt in language and workflows

No selling or exposure of data without additional clear language, expressed, opt in.

H.R. 8152 is on the right track, covering affirmative consent to data collection and plain language disclosure of what the use of the data will be.
It's up to the people, especially the American public, to hold Congress accountable to get it passed.
