An Amazon spokesman said:
Recently, due to a new feature in IOS 14, tiktok has been found to access user's clipboard data in the background runtime, which may expose passwords or other sensitive data. It is not clear how long this behavior has existed in applications.
American Vice President George Pence said on July 7 that the United States will continue to take action against companies such as TikTok because of national security and data privacy issues

According to reports, TikTok is a short video software tiktok, which officially entered the US market in 2016 as international version of jitter.
By the end of April, the United States was tiktok's second largest market in the world, according to market research firm sensor tower. Currently, in the United States, tiktok has more than 165 million downloads, accounting for about 50% of the total population of the United States. On average, users in the United States open the software eight times a day, and the average time for each user is about 5 minutes.
Among so many users, teenagers are the main user group of tiktok in the United States. In 2019, tiktok said that about 60% of the 26.5 million active users in the United States are 16-24 years old.
Moreover, tiktok, as an independent subsidiary of byte hopping, does not operate in China.
China's tiktok was China's TikTok, and the byte beating was completely divided by TikTok. In addition to Chinese users unable to use TikTok, the internal teams also set up firewalls. The employees who worked in China and worked in the Chinese market were unable to access TikTok critical data.
For all that,Tiktok is facing a lot of problems. It has been subject to extra strict regulation in the United States, and it has caused a lot of controversy recently because of some actions.

Since 2019, the U.S. regulatory agencies have stepped up the scrutiny of tiktok, mainly involving threats to national security and violation of data privacy.
For example, in February 2019, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sued tiktok, which said that tiktok illegally collected personal information of children under 13 without parental consent. In response, the FTC issued a $5.7 million fine to tiktok.
In response to the repeated accusations made by the US government, tiktok tried to establish the image of maintaining data privacy by setting up a transparent center, separating domestic and foreign markets, and hiring local executives.
In March 2020, tiktok set up a transparency center in Los Angeles and plans to open a second transparency center in Washington.
After India banned the use of TikTok, not only the U.S., but also Internet celebrities working on the platform, such as India
According to the Washington Post on July 11, local time, karmash, 41, a gym owner from India, was famous for sharing drumsticks on tiktok. Within a few months, he attracted nearly 7 million fans worldwide.
India is tiktok's largest user market. Now, many big V users in India say sadly that the ban has deprived them of their main source of income, and now they have to find a new platform.
