TikTok users are concerned and confused as the app reportedly requests their iPhone passwords without clear reasons.

Experts highlight the lack of transparency from Chinese-owned TikTok, especially given its past involvement in spying on journalists.

The sudden password request coincided with urgent security updates from Apple, raising additional worries. (Trending: Could Taylor Swift Save Biden In 2024?)

FBI Director Christopher Wray, said, “The Chinese government could use it to control data collection on millions of users or control the recommendation algorithm, which could be used for influence operations if they so choose, or to control software on millions of devices.”

TikTok has not provided a clear explanation for the password demand, leading to speculations about potential security vulnerabilities or privacy concerns.

Experts caution against sharing passwords due to security risks and phishing attempts.

Some users report the issue stopping after updating the app, while others suggest workarounds like canceling the prompt or turning off restricted mode.

This development comes amid criticism of TikTok’s impact on public perception and previous privacy failures, with concerns about national security tied to its Chinese ownership.
