TikTok Denies Breach After Hacker Claims ‘2 Billion Data Records’ Stolen Davey WinderSenior Contributor_Forbes

Earlier this month, I reported how security researchers had uncovered a serious TikTok vulnerability that could have exposed users to a 1-click account takeover exploit. That issue, impacting Android app users, has long since been patched by TikTok. However, just as TikTok users breathe a sigh of relief, reports that TikTok U.S. has been hacked have started circulating, first on an online data breach marketplace forum and then Twitter over the holiday weekend. A TikTok spokesperson has told this reporter that no evidence of a security breach has been found. Security experts recommend that TikTok users change their passwords and ensure two-factor authentication (2FA) is activated anyway, out of an abundance of caution.
