Tik Tok, currently the world’s most popular iPhone app, under fire over lack of privacy settings


The world’s currently most downloaded iPhone app has come under fire from cybersecurity experts for a lack of privacy settings, just days after a Post investigation found hundreds of Hong Kong children as young as nine exposing their identities on the platform.
