TechCrunch: TikTok just gave itself permission to collect biometric data on US users, including ‘faceprints and voiceprints’. “A change to TikTok’s U.S. privacy policy…introduced a new section that says the social video app ‘may collect biometric identifiers and biometric information’ from its users’ content. This includes things like ‘faceprints and voiceprints,’ the policy explained. Reached for comment, TikTok could not confirm what product developments necessitated the addition of biometric data to its list of disclosures about the information it automatically collects from users, but said it would ask for consent in the case such data collection practices began.”
