This is my setup: I used mitmproxy to route all app traffic for analysis. See in this video how device information, usage time and watched videos are sent to Appsflyer and Facebook.
Most important: Fundamental rights are violated because PII is transfered to a company in an unsecure noneuropean country. The server location doesn't count, it is about where the company deciding about the data resides, says @malteengeler. Tiktoks Headquarter: Beijing 🇨🇳

Thanks for all the positive comments. I transferred the thread to a blog post for more convenient reading.

jesus fucking christ, what layer of hell is this
(no this isn't my first time)
@rufposten well good thing i never used tiktok
@rufposten Thanks for your work and for revealing all this.
@rufposten I feel sorry for the generation for which being accepted implies using all these apps.
@rufposten I teach young students and TikTok is all the rage right now ... I have done work with my students (age:11) around privacy and data exploitation but your work here is an eye-opener beyond even that ... Thanks for sharing ... I need to continue my conversations with kids and parents ... Is there a single place where you have compiled your analysis? Or is it just in this thread?
@rufposten ah yes, the best way to protect vulnerable people is to hide them from society, and not like, geez, idunno, speaking out in their support and making sure their needs are met
@rufposten Welp. 🤬
Großartige Arbeit!! 👍
