TikTok accused of using cat’s account to spy on journalist

London: Tiktok has been accused of spying on a British journalist through a social media account named after his cat. The BBC reported on Friday that London-based journalist Christina Criddle received a call from TikTok two days before Christmas, alerting her to the hacking. The Chinese video-sharing platform told her that two of its employees in China and two in the US had accessed user data from her personal account without her knowledge or consent. “It was really chilling and terrifying and, personally, quite violating,”; she said.
