    Children’s data breach: UK fines TikTok over €14m

    Tik Tok He was fined £12.7m (€14.4m) in the UK for a series of breaches of data protection law, including not lawfully using children’s personal data. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said more than 1 million children under 13 were using TikTok in 2020, even though its terms of use do not allow it.

    The ICO also added that the personal data of these children was being used without parental consent and that the company “has not done enough” to verify the ages of users and take sufficient action to remove minors from the app. Under UK data protection laws, tech giants must have parental permission to use this data.

    “There are laws in place to ensure our children are as safe in the digital world as they are in the physical world,” said John Edwards, UK Information Commissioner, adding, “TikTok has failed to comply with these laws.”
