The short video-sharing app TikTok is under investigation in the UK for how it handles the personal data of the young users in the country, as well as to check whether it prioritises the safety of children on its social network. The Guardian reported that Elizabeth Denham, Information Commissioner in the UK, told a parliamentary committee that an investigation into the matter began in February this year. The probe reportedly followed the $5.7 million (approx Rs 39 crores) fine that the US Federal Trade Commission imposed on Bytedance, the Chinese firm that owns TikTok, for illegally collecting personal information from children under 13.
