It puzzles me a bit when people think that the TikTok app (and other apps) would be able to do anything remotely like this :p. It certainly can't, especially not when not active.

So, that's more likely (since people might use the app now and then), but it seems like bases would be much easier to detect with regular satellite intel.

That said, I agree that apps in general should be restricted in such situations.
