SideChannel (OTCQB: SDCH) CEO and cybersecurity expert Brian Haugli was quoted in a recent CBC News article that focused on the TikTok and why many countries are concerned about the popular app. The article, titled “Is TikTok bad? Here’s Why Many Western Countries Are Taking a Closer Look,” noted that the focus on TikTok has increased as tensions have increased between China and the West. The leaders of numerous countries are scrutinizing the Chinese-owned platform as they consider the risks that the app poses to its millions of users. The article notes that Canada’s federal privacy regulator and three provincial counterparts have launched a joint probe aimed at determining whether the social media app meets privacy-law expectations as well as how the app gathers and uses data about its users. The article quotes numerous individuals who indicate concerns about the app and whether China or the app itself is violating the rights of users. The article noted that a pair of key European Union policy-making institutions have banned the app from staff phones while a growing number of U.S. states have ordered the app removed from all government phones. The article observed that Haugli “sees a danger in the information that TikTok users may be unknowingly sharing, after downloading an app that can ‘see and store’ an individual’s location, the networks they access and any incoming messages. When you really kind of dig in to all the permissions that are in there, I don’t think it’s something that most users are either aware of, or willing to really hand over, to a company that’s owned and housed inside of China,’ Haugli told CBC’s ‘The National’ in December.”
