The year 2020 is a year of serious trouble for TikTok. A Chinese company has serious issues globally, soon after the border clash of China with its neighbor country, India. TikTok first banned in India than in the United States and now charged by Korean regulators with a heavy fine.

The most serious issue on the basis of which TikTok is being alleged is that. It is violating the privacy standards of its users. According to the Korean Communication Commission (KCC). TikTok is fined due to mishandling the child data, without any concerns to their guardians.

According to the regulation commission of South Korea, TikTok outsourced the data of its users to a third party. In addition, they said that recently, TikTok is using four cloud systems to store the data of its users. From which Alibaba is more prominent. They claimed that the South Korean TikTok server is run by Alibaba. Which is based in the US and Singapore, which is against the privacy law.

The fine charged to TikTok in South Korea is equal to 3% of the total income of the company. According to the survey report. A minimum of 6,007 pieces of child data was collected from 31 May 2017 to 6 December 2019. This survey report brings the latest blow to the Chinese company.


From the above discussion, we can easily understand that how Chinese company, collects their users’ data and store their data to the server of a third party, without any consent from its users. I think TikTok is needed to change its privacy policy for its users to avoid upcoming issues in the near future.
