International News: Indiana state sues TikTok over security and safety concerns

Posted: Monday, December 12, 2022. 11:54 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Popular dancing app, TikTok is being sued by the U.S. state of Indiana citing security and safety concerns, BBC reports.

Indiana’s Attorney General, Todd Rokita is accusing ByteDance, TikTok’s parent company of violating the state’s consumer protection laws.

TikTok is accused of failing to safeguard young people and their privacy.

TikTok says that it considers youth well-being in its policies and that it was confident it could satisfy US national security concerns.

The 2 lawsuits filed on Wednesday by the state of Indiana claim that TikTok exposes young users to inappropriate content.

The complaint says the app’s algorithm promotes a variety of inappropriate content, “depicting alcohol, tobacco, and drugs; sexual content, nudity, and suggestive themes; and intense profanity.”

Meanwhile, TikTok says that “the safety, privacy, and security of our community is our top priority”.
