Invasion of our personal information warning

Do you remember I asked if anyone was on TikTok? Well we may want to leave it.

She was one of the first to present evidence and warn us, but few people listened. Now the U.S. House of Representatives says she was correct.
Former Google executive Felix Krause yesterday posted “TikTok, when opening any website in their app, injects tracking code that can monitor all keystrokes, including passwords, and all taps.”

Jaja Liao holds a BA in Molecular Biology from Yale University, and is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Taiwan. She lives in San Francisco and her articles have appeared in Forbes magazine.
Three years ago she quit her job at TikTok and and warned the world. She said the company was clearly controlled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and the app was spyware which impacted 80 million users.
She called it a giant data farm for the CCP. Yesterday, she wrote that at the time, “none of y’all listened to me!”
On Thursday afternoon, the U.S. House of Representatives’ Chief Administrative Officer finally issued a cyber advisory on TikTok. It was labeled “high-risk” with personal information being accessed from inside China.
The official House advisory says “We do not recommend the download or use of this application due to these security and privacy concerns.”

And this is the very reason why I don’t use TicTok.

Interestingly enough this is the only social media that I use, either because I don’t trust the apps, or because I do not want to help lib media companies to get rich!

I was aware of this when it came out, and despite being what I thought was common knowledge, watched it become the latest greatest thing among that common breed; the American “look at me” idiot.

Never had access to this platform. Thank You for the update.

In our community at USCCA we have the pleasure to
freely write and communicate and I enjoy being apart
of very much. I have been caught up in firearms
training and learning all that I can for sometime.

I am very sorry to say that I really do not understand
all the political nightmares that we all face today and I
am learning, but for the last 18 months have been
full of Biden, The Constitution, and federal / state laws.

The Biden Administration and his attempt to destroy
our Rights, ( all of The Constitution ), have been very painful. I know a great deal of our American History
and I love learning much more, but Biden’s lying and
Dictatorship is very confusing and very disturbing
and alarming. If Biden is replaced we need to make sure that he is replaced with the best person to lead the United States in the correct direction and to help her people and restore life.

Everyone in this Community and USCCA have been
Their greatest and I appreciate your hard work and please continue with many more years to come.

I am not a perfect writer and if there are mistakes
made or any misunderstandings, my sincerest
Apologizes to all and everyone.

That’s why I have never visited Tik Tok.
Never had a Facebook Page, Twitter Account, etc…

Just a few internet forums and that is all…

I recall that at one point, U.S. Service Members were told not to use the app. It was suggested that China was using it to collect information on military personnel.

I am sorry you are feeling pain because of an attempt to destroy your rights. We all feel that pain. I hope that pain doesn’t affect your heart. What I mean is it doesn’t cause you to harden your heart/hate the president of the US. Hate is the destroyer when it is not directed at hate. For me knowing that my hate is for the hate he is feeling and how it comes out and not for the president relives my pain and fear. We as responsibly armed Americans should be free of this pain and fear so we can be the best Americans we can be. Hope this helps.

I appreciate your comment here. Wish to point out
that I will not or do not hate Biden in any way personally. He has been untruthful, destructive,
abuse to dismantle our Constitution, he is seeking
and signing his own personal laws that are destroying
our economy and buying and selling products
like food or material items, it gets worse. Inflation is not the worse problem and we all have faced that issue
for many years.

Yes everyone’s 2A Rights are being twisted and we focus on that single Constitutional Right and the rest of the
26 Amendments become trashed.

Remember the History of the 1930’s and 40’s, I sincerely
do not want Anyone to face those Dictators again, not even Biden, I only judge the hardship and mistakes
that are being made and Biden’s Misleadings. I will never hate the president, but we must take a Legal stand, without violence and hurting others to prove that
our country will not bow to the communist and
socialistic lies and loose our freedoms.

I am not Superman nor do I know all things, but Biden is
very much misguided and he is not at the controls.

Only TikTok in my house tells the time. I avoid most of the faddish stuff till its proven. I avoided TikTok more so when the Trump Administration was trying to ban them from business in the US for that very reason. Of course all those with TDS poo poo’d the idea, not because it wasn’t possible, because it came from the Trump Administration.

Such is the effect of our toxic political culture.
If Trump had tweeted “water is wet,” a good third of the nation would try to prove him wrong.

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭53:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Mr Robert I thank you for your Favorite Bible Chapter
and please go back to your Bible and find more
Favorites that you can cherish, Jesus is Real and
Risen.

I do not hate or even know these people that have attacked our Rights and Freedom. But I know this, that
Jesus can change anyone.

Every time the LEFT or our Democrats, religious groups seek to throw the worst parts of the destruction of the
Enemy, Satan in everyone face; Revelations.

You and I can hold onto Jesus Christ and when HE
does return for us and everyone that knows Jesus Christ
there is ViCTORY.

I have been forgiven of many sins and carried. We need
Jesus and He has a purpose for all of us.

You hold on to those Favorite Verses and do not let go.

Bill

Do watch Youtube with ads, and Tic Tock ads are very prevalent. From the ads I have seen it looks like a collection of two minute videos in which people prove their stupidity that wouldn’t hold my interest even for 2 minutes.

Sorry; didn’t mean to derail your post but I think I found out that when someone mentions they are in pain it triggers my emotions. I guess one could say it was a revelation. :upside_down_face:

I grew up as a child and a young adult listening
and laughing at this comedian and there is a peace
and truth that I only share.

I have trained heavily in the mechanics of firearms
equipment, safety, gun laws, first aide, ballistics, and
I seek only to be responsible with all that have learned
In the past 6 years. I owe a great thank you to USCCA
and her staff.

I love our Constitution and in the past 18 months I
have learn a lot for what it means in one’s life. I learn
that people lived and died to preserve our Freedom,
and Our Rights. Many people have lived, served, and
died for freedom through many battles.

I only send this message that it can help us continue
to be free and find that hope we seek, only life, not death.
