Joe Rogan highlighted worries on Tuesday that TikTok, one of the most popular social media apps worldwide, presents a special risk to the security and privacy of American citizens’ personal information.
Bytedance, a Chinese firm, owns TikTok. The 2017 National Intelligence Law requires private businesses and China’s Civil Military Fusion Policy allow for the sharing of information and data at the request of the Chinese government.
On the most recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan remarked, “I read TikTok’s terms of service, and I fell down a TikTok rabbit hole yesterday. This is so bizarre.
The comedian and podcaster Theo Von, who was his guest, chimed in, “Is it good or bad?”
“Bad!” Rogan answered.

He went on to say, “User agent, mobile carrier, time zone settings, identifiers for advertising purposes, model of your device, the device system, network type, device IDs, your screen resolution and operating system, app and file names and kinds.”
So they have access to everything you’ve stored on your phone, including all of your apps and file names, he explained. “‘File names and types, rhythmic or repetitive keyboard patterns.'”
Rogan continued, “So they’re watching your keystrokes, which means they know every f—-ing word you type.

“When you log in from different devices, we will be able to use your profile information to track your behavior across devices based on your battery level, audio preferences, and connected audio devices. Information gathered from devices other than the ones you use to enter into the platform may also be linked to you “explained Rogan.
“In other words, they can log into TikTok using computers that you aren’t even using. They could extract the info from that. As soon as you download and use TikTok, you consent to it “said he.
It’s absurd, said Von, “Do you suppose they made TikTok specifically so they could have all that?”
“Absolutely,” Rogan answered.
Just provide the conclusion, dude,” Von demanded.
China will eventually possess all of your data, according to Rogan.
Rogan also brought up the Chinese bank robberies and the digital currency issued by the central bank of that nation.
I don’t know if you’ve seen this, but in China, they’ve put tanks up in front of banks to prevent people from rioting because they’ve just taken all their money, he added.
