TickTalk will automatically collect “facial and voice” data
The debate began in June, and Dickdock began to ask about the matter. At the time, Chinese application Byte Dance claimed to obtain “all necessary permissions” within the laws to collect “facial and voice prints”. As discovered Tech Crunch.
As Dictak is not yet explicit on this issue, senators Globuschar and Tunn wrote in a letter asking the social network to explain the changes in detail. They want to know exactly what “face mark” and “voice mark” are, how this data will be used, how long it will be retained, and with whom it will be shared.

The senators’ letter highlights a significant increase in social networking activity during corona virus outbreaks, which “increased the need to protect consumer privacy.” This document further clarifies the concerns of children and adolescents, who are “more than 32% of Dictok’s active users”.
