ByteDance, the owner of TikTok, will pay 92 million dollars to its users in accordance with the agreement reached in the lawsuit filed under the “Biometric Information Privacy Act” of the state of Illinois in the USA.

In the federal lawsuit, it was announced that TikTok had violated the Illinois state “Biometric Information Privacy Act” by storing all personal data, including face and fingerprint scanning, without the consent of its users.

In a statement made by e-mail, TikTok stated that the application aims to create a safe and fun environment for the user community and agreed to pay $ 92 million to US users under the agreement reached in the lawsuit.

Facebook also agreed to pay compensation

The US state of Illinois is the only state that allows individuals to claim financial compensation against companies that collect data without their consent.

Similarly, Facebook agreed to pay 550 million dollars in damages in a lawsuit filed for collecting and storing users’ biometric data without permission in February.
