Privacy Alert TikTok's InAppBrowser Tapes
TikTok's InAppBrowser taps all keyboard inputs on iOS and Android, capturing users' information such as credit cards and passwords, according to security researcher
"TikTok's InAppBrowser keystroke inputs Monitor Sensitive Credentials, Passwords, and Credit Card Info, as well as every Tap on the screen," Krause stated
He praised his technological abilities: "This is the same as putting a keylogger on third-party websites, that TikTok needs to fix"
Krause said, "Users should have an option for switching to default Browser for links, such as Safari on the iPhone to protect themselves from malicious code"
"Whenever you open a link from any social app," Krause said, "check whether the app displayed the website on your regular browser." "Except TikTok, most applications do that"
