TikTok shares your data more than any other social media app
Two of your social media apps could be collecting a lot of data on you — and you might not like what one of them is doing with it.

That’s according to a recent study, published last month by mobile marketing company URL Genius, which found that YouTube and TikTok track users’ personal data more than any other social media apps.

In detail, YouTube and Tik Tok track users' personal data more than any other apps.

The study also found that YouTube, owned by Google, mostly collects your personal data for its own purposes, such as tracking your Internet search history, or even your location, to serve you relevant ads, according to CNBC. shock!

Shocking, however, is what TikTok, which is owned by Chinese tech giant ByteDance, often allows third-party trackers to collect your data. From there, it's hard to tell what's going on with her.

This makes it essentially impossible to know who is tracking your data or what information they collect.

The study also indicated that third parties can track your activity on other sites even after you leave the app.
