The entire world is still now fighting with the Coronavirus. The situation is not quite normal like before. That is why people are not considering China as a reliable nation, world-wide. The Chinese video application faced a lot of trouble when the government of India banned it from usage.
Now, the ByteDance owned video platform, TikTok is targeted by some black hat anonymous hackers. It happened just because the experts believe that the Chinese app is stealing all the vital information from people’s mobile devices. So, the hackers are on a mission to notify everyone “Delete TikTok now”.
What TikTok is doing at the back-end?
When people are using the application, it is accessing the device’s clipboard. The clipboard in any mobile, PC, or laptop acts as volatile data space. It is where someone copies any of their important information like email ID, password, pictures, texts, and many more. After the launch of Apple iOS 14, the matter was clear to all the people. The experts made themselves clear that the contents of the clipboard have a backlash immediately followed.
The Unusual Campaign against TikTok
For several weeks, a group of unusual people, anonymous groups are applying for unauthorized access in the TikTok database. Reports say that the hack of Twitter is nothing in front of this fierce hijacking campaign. In addition to that, they are also inspiring people to delete the malicious application as soon as possible.
Furthermore, they have also explained how the Chinese application is spying on people. Apart from the group of hackers, a team of engineers has reverse-engineered the application. As a result, they found that the app is literally violating the security and privacy of the people. In return, TikTok didn’t comment on this matter.
Presence of Duplicate Accounts
The hackers also stated that in TikTok, there are also duplicate accounts of people. This can only happen when there are no perfect central functions running properly just like the Minneapolis police story. A certain organization that was monetizing TikTok stated that they will not tolerate this type of false allegations.
In return, they will take action with the so-called ‘not so good’ consequences. Now, this has become an interesting clash between the two stories on Twitter. A fake killing video of George Floyd stormed the entire social media. The hackers believe that this activity was one of the owners of these duplicate accounts.
The Concern of High Profile people
It is now well known that the US and Indian government has warned the people about the risk of using TikTok. But other than that, there are also celebrities and other high profile influencers who also revealed their own facts and views regarding this matter. The anonymous group of people is targeting this same person to join the force against TikTok.
Their opinion is that their campaign will create their own message for the people who use TikTok. Till now the people belonging to the user base are silent. They are still using the video-sharing application not obeying any type of advice. But, a time will come when there will be a change in the wind.
