TikTok injects code into third-party web pages when a user opens a browser page in the TikTok app. This code can act as a keylogger, among other things. According to the social medium, the respective code is used only for development purposes.
Thus, the keylogger piece of code from the third-party SDK will not be used. It is not clear who this third party is and whether they will actually need keyboard recording software for development purposes. TikTok further suggests that some of the recorded data is only processed locally on the device and is not forwarded to the social medium’s servers.
So it’s not a given that TikTok actually records users’ keyboard inputs, let alone sends them to their own servers or otherwise stores them. However, it is almost certain that this will be possible. That is why, according to Krause, it is wise to copy browser links via TikTok, but also via Facebook and Instagram, and paste them directly into a trusted browser. In this way, related applications cannot enter a code to record sensitive data in this way.
