Tik Tok for game players!!!!

Recommended Posts

Go this in an article this morning and thought I would post it for any game players we may have here:

The back end of that app really is a Trojan horse for everything on your phone: Your emails, your text messages, your photographs, your social media posts, your browser history, even your keystrokes and your location data — all of that gets vacuumed up by the TikTok app and sent back to servers in China

And Trump has decided to let them continue here for over a month while Microsoft decides if they want to buy them. They aren't for sale by the way.  Another case of him getting involved in something he knows nothing about, and he needs to be letting other agencies handle it. I mean after all, what could happen in a month…… 🙃

 Well Pearl Harbor took an hour and 5 minutes nd 9/11 attack lasted 35 minutes so no telling what can happen in a month and I do agree. Trump needs to be doing Trump things and not worrying about Games. Let the people that do game stuff to take care of that.....:shrug:

Would we even know about this situation if POTUS hadn't gotten involved??

I say kudos to him for screeching about it from the oval office.

And if he backs out of it, will it be quietly swept under the rug as so many other things are??

I agree that it probably isn't in his job description.
If the folks that truly are responsible for it actually did their job, he/we wouldn't have to worry about it.

In all fairness to them, could it be that he is only grabbing the limelight because they did their job? I have no idea, I just kinda doubt he came up with this on his own.

What does tik tok access on a users phone that Instagram, FB, and Snapchat don’t? Is the problem simply that the data on your phone is considered more accessible to a foreign government than the data on the other apps? If people are worried about Trojan backdoor entry from an app simply because it’s from China, they should probably look into where their phones are made (or the majority of their electronics and security systems for that matter). Do you truly believe there are not backdoors into any of it?

I am not a blind Trump fanboy, I voted for him once and will again given the lack of options. That being said, if people can’t see the conflict of interest in Trump saying tiktok bad and threatening to ban it, which prompted the company to begin negotiations to sell to a US company (as American desperate housewives and their whorish daughters are the bulk users of the app) and then Trump swoops back in and says oh yeah, the treasury should get some of the money from this deal....really?

I would think that before something gets “banned” by the government they would need to show some legitimate examples of how it is actually a threat to national security, particularly in comparison to other apps that the sheep use daily to give their personal information and intimate pictures to whomever wants to look.
