How TikTok Spied On Me And Lost Its Credibility

In this talk, Emily Baker-White from Forbes, will reveal how TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, used the world’s most popular app to surveil her.


6. June.

Time: 09:00 - 09:30


The presentation will explore why tech companies have pursued these actions — and the (often criminal) repercussions they have faced for them. Emily will also discuss other cases where tech companies have spied on journalists, including Hewlett Packard’s impersonation of reporters to obtain their phone records, and eBay’s egregious harassment of a blogger, which included physically stalking her and sending live cockroaches and spiders to her home.
