Tiktok (TikTok) has been in discussion for quite some time and now another big news is coming about it. It has been learned that Ticketlock is tracking the data of Android users through MAC address. A MAC address is a unique digital identifier that is attached to all phones and cannot be reset. According to a Wall Street Journal report, TikTok can do this using a hidden layer of encryption, which is a violation of Google’s app policy.

The report stated that Ticketcock had collected MAC addresses for about 15 months and that tracking ended in November last year. A TickTalk spokesperson said the company was committed to protecting the privacy and safety of the Ticketock community. It was further stated that TikTok like its peers constantly updates its app to deal with security challenges.
