European consumer organisations file complaint on TikTok
Test Aankoop/Test Achats, together with BEUC and 16 other European consumer organisations, have lodged a formal complaint against TikTok. The complainants are asking the European Commission and the various regulators to conduct an in-depth investigation into the practices used by the popular Chinese app.
Through their complaint, the consumer groups hope that the app will become a safer environment. “A better TikTok app that respects the rights of its users is possible – and that’s what we want,” explain Test Aankoop/Test Achats spokespersons, Simon November and Julie Frère.
