In a French language newspaper Don’t derniere heure PVDA President Raoul Hedibou says he has no intention of removing the app from his smartphone. “It is a great way to connect with thousands of young people and discuss social issues. But also to discover artistic and humorous creativity.
According to Prime Minister Alexandre de Croo (Open Vld), the ban is nothing more than “common sense”, but Hedebouw disagrees. He said: “The United States and its multinational corporations are the heroes of the invasion of privacy and computer espionage.”
Even today, US intelligence services have free access to our data, for example through social networks. The government chose to target TikTok, even though in the words of Vincent Van Quickenborn himself, there is no evidence of abuse. Why this double standard? Is espionage acceptable if the United States? ”
According to the opposition party, the government should protect our privacy on all platforms. “Not only on TikTok, but also on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram… We know that the revenue model of these companies depends on misusing our data. A ban will not improve the situation,” said Member of Parliament Nabil Boukeli on Friday after banning TikTok.
“Instead, we need to deploy robust tools: a truly independent data protection authority to monitor what happens to our data, algorithmic advertising, or an open source application,” concludes Nabil Boukeli.
