TikTok removes 104 million videos for violating guidelines

TikTok said that over 104 million videos were removed from its platform globally for violating community guidelines or terms of service in the first half of 2020.

“Of those videos, we found and removed 96.4% of videos before a user reported them, and 90.3% were removed before they received any views,” TikTok said in a transparency report.

US officials had expressed concern that personal data of as many as 100 million Americans that use the app was being passed on to China’s Communist Party government.

TikTok said it got 1,768 requests for user data, with 290, or 16.4%, of those from US law enforcement agencies.
