TikTok says it has never been used to target specific people after Forbes reported the app would be used to monitor some individuals' locations
TikTok claims that the service has never been used to harass or harm any US government officials in any way.
In the United States, TikTok has been at the centre of privacy and security controversies.
On Friday, TikTok denied targeting US government officials, activists, public figures, or journalists.
After Forbes reported on October 20 that ByteDance, TikTok's China-based company, intended to use the app to track some Americans, the social media platform tweeted the denial.
Forbes stated that TikTok uses IP addresses to estimate user locations.
Concerns that Beijing may influence TikTok have sparked privacy and security issues under former President Donald Trump and current President Joe Biden.
