TikTok’s in-app browser is said to be able to monitor everything you type
Krause said TikTok’s in-app browser “subscribes” to all keyboard input while a user interacts with an external website, including any sensitive details such as passwords and logins. credit card information, as well as each tap on the screen.
“Whenever you open a link from any app, see if the app offers a way to open the website currently displayed in your default browser,” Krause wrote. “During this analysis, all apps other than TikTok offered a way to do this.”
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
