Security researchers have found that the TikTok iPhone app is spying on its users by secretly reading the clipboard. The behaviour is "triggered by a feature designed to identify repetitive, spammy behaviour," Bytedance said, adding that it has already submitted a new version to the App Store amending this behaviour.

TikTok doesn't have start to finish encryption like some other applications, making it less protected to send private or individual direct messages. "Try not to click joins from obscure clients and square posts from accounts you don't perceive," Gaffney says.

Security scientists have found that the TikTok iPhone application is keeping an eye on its clients by furtively perusing the clipboard. The conduct is "set off by an element intended to recognize dreary, nasty conduct," Bytedance said, adding that it has effectively presented another form to the Application Store correcting this conduct.

Much of the media commentary around TikTok concerns focuses on issues relating to national security, but most users are unlikely to have nationally sensitive content on their phones. For individuals, the risk is not significantly different to that of other popular social media apps.
