A cybersecurity firm tested the security of Tik Tok and found "multiple vulnerabilities" in the app's code, allowing for security loopholes and hacking accounts. Check Point Research published their findings on the app, showing the security concerns. The firm's research shows they were able to manipulate code to mess with accounts' contents, delete and upload videos without the account owner's consent, make previously "hidden" videos public, and access personal information like email addresses. Researchers at Check Point say they were even able to exploit a feature where users can text themselves a link to download Tik Tok and use it to send malware to any phone number.
