ByteDance president Roland Cloutier made important statements. Cloutier said that China cannot access TikTok user data, even if it wants to.
ByteDance chairman made reassuring statements
ByteDance, the parent company of TikTok, is among the most innovative companies of recent years. ByteDance, which has projects in many fields from artificial intelligence to music, is best known for TikTok.
However, many countries have almost declared war on TikTok. The reason behind this is that user data is collected and sold in TikTok.
Cloutier, who is the head of security at ByteDance, said that it is almost impossible for other countries, including China, to access user data on TIKTok. According to Cloutier, the fact that the servers are located in the USA further increases this security measure.
Cloutier says the company has a specific procedure whenever a government or security agency requests data from them. He also stressed that there has been no sharing with the Chinese government so far.
