I see my friends on Facebook and Twitter using TikTok all the time for personal things. Photos, GIF's, streaming video clips, and when I ask them if they are aware of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) connection, they say they had no idea, and they go on using the app. It's pretty apparent to me that China poses a threat to all of us from a security standpoint.
