TikTok Goes For A Biometric Grab Of 66 Million US Users ...WHAT COULD GO WRONG?.....LOL

TikTok quietly rolled out its new US privacy policy earlier this week, allowing the Chinese company to automatically "collect biometric identifiers and biometric information" from its users' content.

TechCrunch first pointed out the policy change introduced in the recently added section, "Image and Audio Information," located under the section titled "Information we collect automatically." It states:

"We may collect information about the images and audio that are a part of your User Content, such as identifying the objects and scenery that appear, the existence and location within an image of face and body features and attributes, the nature of the audio, and the text of the words spoken in your User Content. We may collect this information to enable special video effects, for content moderation, for demographic classification, for content and ad recommendations, and for other non-personally-identifying operations."

The most alarming part of the section is this bolded part:

"We may collect biometric identifiers and biometric information as defined under US laws, such as faceprints and voiceprints, from your User Content. Where required by law, we will seek any required permissions from you prior to any such collection."

"The statement itself is vague, as it doesn't specify whether it's considering federal law, states laws, or both. It also doesn't explain, as the other part did, why TikTok needs this data. It doesn't define the terms "faceprints" or "voiceprints." Nor does it explain how it would go about seeking the "required permissions" from users, or if it would look to either state or federal laws to guide that process of gaining consent," TechCrunch said.
