On Tuesday, The Joe Rogan Experience host Joe Rogan expressed worry that one of the most popular social media platforms in the globe, TikTok, might pose a unique concern for U.S. data privacy and safety.

Bytedance is a Chinese firm that owns TikTok. China’s Civil Military Fusion Policy and 2017 National Intelligence Law stipulate that private enterprises in China must provide information and data to the Chinese government upon request.

“I read TikTok’s terms of service, I went down a TikTok rabbit hole yesterday…This is so crazy,” Rogan said on the latest episode of the Joe Rogan Experience.placeholder

“Is it good or bad?” interjected his guest, podcaster and comedian Theo Von.

“Bad!” Rogan responded.

“Listen to this, this is from TikTok’s privacy policy,” Rogan said. “It said, ‘We collect certain information about the device you use to access the platform, such as your IP address, user region.’ This is really crazy.”

“‘User agent, mobile carrier, time zone settings, identifiers for advertising purpose, model of your device, the device system, network type, device IDs, your screen resolution and operating system, app and file names and types,'” he continued.

“So all your apps and all your file names, all the things you have filed away on your phone, they have access to that,” he said. “‘File names and types, keystroke patterns or rhythms.'”

“So they’re monitoring your keystrokes, which means they know every f—ing thing you type,” Rogan added.

“‘Battery state, audio settings and connected audio devices, where you log in from multiple devices, we will be able to use your profile information to identify your activity across devices. We may also associate you with information collected from devices other than those you use to log into the platform'” Rogan said.

“Meaning they can use other computers that you’re not even using to log into TikTok. They can suck the data off that. That’s what you’re agreeing to when you download and start using TikTok,” he said.

Von asked Rogan, “It’s insane… Do you think they created TikTok just on purpose to have all that?”

“100 percent,” Rogan responded.placeholder

Rogan also mentioned the bank runs in China and the country’s Central Bank Digital Currency.

“What’s going on in China, I don’t know if you’ve seen this, but they pulled tanks in front of banks to stop people from f—ing rioting because they just took all their money,” he said.

The risks of losing freedom that come with China’s digital currency, which it uses to dominate its people, was also mentioned by Rogan. “If you see what’s going on over there, with the digital currency, what they have is the ability to tell you, you can’t buy gas. Like, “Hey Theo, we don’t like the way you’re living your life, so you’re not going to be able to buy a plane ticket,'” Rogan said.
