• ByteDance allowed a Chinese Communist Party unit to censor content and access data, a new lawsuit alleges.
  • The unit, referred to as the “Committee,” even had a “death switch” to turn off certain apps.
  • ByteDance built a “backdoor channel” to enable CCP access to US user data, the suit alleges.

I hope this app gets picked apart and investigated thoroughly. If the claims in the lawsuit are true, then it will have confirmed what probably a lot of privacy minded people have long been suspecting.

    So, a foreign government was/is doing what corporations and facebook have been doing on facebook for years.

    There’a reason I haven’t been on fb for a long time now.

      So long as you can bring people you know with you to other platforms it’s great! Alas, though I haven’t posted anything on FB for about a decade, I am still tethered through Messenger with people I know.
