Is TikTok secure enough?

Recent research by Check Point focussed on the social platform Tik Tok that has become extremely popular with a global user base, primarily kids!


Whenever new social platforms pop up they become targets, and when the users are kids this must raise concerns over how safe a platform is.

Unfortunately the bad news is that Check Point Research found multiple vulnerabilities in the platform which should raise concerns to parents with kids that are actively using this social media platform.

To see the full findings the link to Check Point research can be found here.

They also have a brief demo video of the attack here.

If you are concerned about how to control your kids use of the Internet there is a wealth of good advice and information for free at:
