TikTok took the world by storm in recent years and, in turn, has become one of the most widely used social media platforms on the planet. Of course, this also represents an equally growing risk to privacy and security . To mitigate this concern, make sure your account is set to private. This allows only your followers to see your videos. Moreover, you can also turn off comments, allow only friends to send you messages and prevent the app from suggesting your account to others.
