DOJ Probing TikTok Over Allegations of Spying on US Tech Journalists

>>Follow Matzav On Whatsapp!<<

The Justice Department is investigating claims that the Chinese company that owns TikTok has been spying on US tech journalists, the NY Post reports. The probe into ByteDance stems from the company’s acknowledgment in December that employees had obtained data of US TikTok users, some of whom were reporters, the New York Times said.

Sources told the Times that the Justice Department, along with the FBI and the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia, are looking into how ByteDance employees were able to access that data.

The Justice Department did not respond to an inquiry from the Times or The Post, and the specific scope of the investigation is unclear.
