The Chinese video sharing Tik Tok is being investigated in the UK for how it handles the personal data of children and the security measures it takes for children in their platform. This investigation which began in February this year was triggered by  the fine imposed on the company by the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for similar violations

Addressing the parliamentary committee, Elizabeth Denham, the information commissioner said that the company was potentially violating the general data protection regulation (GDPR) which “requires the company to provide different services and different protections for children”.
