What are the Chinese going to get from your TikTok that google isn’t stealing from you? Why would the Chinese give two shits about you? Facebook gathers just as much if not more then TikTok.

Absolutely incorrect. Tik Tok collects WAY more data, and changes it's behavior if the app determines you are attempting to analyze it's network traffic.

TikTok is shady as fuck.

Your other links are good but you should probably avoid using that Reddit comment. Dude claims he "reverse engineered" TikTok, Facebook, etc and had all the data but unfortunately his laptop died so he couldn't actually prove anything and he also couldn't reverse engineer it again for some reason and was going to post the proof in a few days but has since gone silent for the last couple years.

Fair enough, it was just something I remembered from way back that raised alarms about TikTok that have been proven correct in the years since. There may have even been a different post I'm thinking of, but this is the one I found with a quick Google.
