TikTok proprietor agrees to $92 million privateness settlement with U.S. customers
ByteDance has agreed to a $ 92 million class action lawsuit to resolve privacy claims from some US TikTok users. This emerges from documents filed in the U.S. District Court in Illinois on Thursday.
ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns the short video app TikTok with more than 100 million US users, agreed to the settlement after more than a year of litigation.
“While we disagree with the allegations instead of engaging in lengthy litigation, we want to focus our efforts on creating a safe and fun experience for the TikTok community,” TikTok said on Thursday. The settlement still requires judicial approval.
