That is just one concern. It might not even be valid in these circumstances (I don't know what TikTok tracks), I am just saying that it should be at least scrutinized because of reasons we can't even imagine yet.
As jdreyer points out, we are playing by the precedent they established.
I was trying to give an example of why you might not want a foreign adversary to have such information about it's citizens. And that seemingly innocuous information can be used for nefarious purposes.
If you trust China enough to not take a closer look at their operations, that is your call. I wish you the best.
