• ByteDance allowed a Chinese Communist Party unit to censor content and access data, a new lawsuit alleges.
  • The unit, referred to as the “Committee,” even had a “death switch” to turn off certain apps.
  • ByteDance built a “backdoor channel” to enable CCP access to US user data, the suit alleges.

I hope this app gets picked apart and investigated thoroughly. If the claims in the lawsuit are true, then it will have confirmed what probably a lot of privacy-minded people have long been suspecting. xpost from privacy@lemmy.ml


This is interesting as these claims are from an ex employee. More credible than some politicians pointing fingers. Also might be a disgruntled employee trying to cash in on the growing outrage.

I hope he has some credible evidence.
