Some politicians are worried the app's Chinese owner, Bytedance, poses a risk to national security.

Others worry about the fact China requires its social-media apps to provide the state access to users' information.

People should be worried about TikTok just like about any "social" media. China is just more open about the fact that they make heavy use of all data they collect. Just like eg. Facebook does.
