Tiktok Declares Oracle to Retain US User Data Safe

TikTok on Friday declared Oracle will store all the data from its US users, in a bid to relieve fears about its safety in the hands of a platform possessed by ByteDance in China.

The widespread video snippet sharing service will remain to use its own datacenters in Virginia and Singapore to backup information as it works to “fully pivot” to depend on on Oracle in the United States, TikTok said in a post.

“We know we are among the most scrutinized platforms from a security standpoint, and we aim to remove any doubt about the security of US user data,” said Albert Calamug, who grips US security public policy at TikTok.

President Joe Biden last year cancelled executive orders from his predecessor Donald Trump looking for to ban Chinese-owned apps TikTok and WeChat from US markets on national security concerns.

Trump had assumed his dedication to a plan that would have given TikTok to US tech giant Oracle.

With investments from retail powerhouse Walmart, but that deal unsuccessful to win approval in Beijing.

Biden’s new executive order nixed the unimplemented prohibition and called for “an evidence-based analysis to address the risks” from internet applications organized by foreign entities.

WeChat, part of Chinese tech giant Tencent, is a “super app” which contains social networking, messaging, e-commerce and more.

TikTok exposed late last year that it had a billion users worldwide.

“Today, 100 percent of US user traffic is being routed to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure,” Calamug said.

“In addition, we’re working closely with Oracle to develop data management protocols that Oracle will audit and manage to give users even more peace of mind.”
