If you or your children have used the TikTok or apps, you could be entitled to money from a recent class-action lawsuit settlement.

A $92 million settlement is currently pending in the TikTok, Inc., Consumer Privacy Litigation. This lawsuit alleges the company violated federal and state laws by harvesting consumer data without consent, including facial and fingerprint scanning.

TikTok denies the allegations, but on November 15th, a notice was posted in the app directing users to visit this website for more information about the settlement.

To be eligible for a payment, you must have used the TikTok or app before September 30th, 2021. If you’re the parent of a minor child who is eligible, you may file a claim for them too. The deadline to submit a claim form is March 1st, 2022.

Because the lawsuit alleges that TikTok broke the Illinois biometric privacy law, you may be entitled to up to six times the payment amount if you live in the state of Illinois.

Claims can be submitted electronically here or by printing a form and mailing it in.

Individual payout amounts will depend on the number of people submitting a claim. You can choose to receive your payment via PayPal, Venmo, a virtual prepaid card, or a physical check mailed to your address.

    Read the whole faq but didn’t understand how much money we will actually be getting. Living in Illinois people get 6x more. But how much 🤔

      They won’t know an exact number until the sign up is closed. The total settlement will be for $92 million minus attorney and court fees. Even if only 20% of the eligable users apply, the payment will be less than a dollar per person.

    Wouldn’t count on any money. Last class action check I received bounced when I cashed it the next day.
