Chances are, you use TikTok and/or your minor child does too.
Well, if you said yes to either of those (or both) you should know, there is a TikTok Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Which Means You Can Get Paid. Here’s How.
People all over the US are receiving a TikTok notification claiming they are eligible for a settlement payment if they used the app before October 1, 2021.
So, what does this mean for you? Well, if you used the app before that date, you are entitled to a cash payment from the settlement.
What is the TikTok class action lawsuit for?
Plaintiffs filed a class action complaint, claiming that TikTok “violated federal and state law by collecting and using, without sufficient notice and consent, Plaintiffs’ personal data in connection with their use of the TikTok – Make Your Day video-sharing application.”
How much money can TikTok users receive from the Class Action Settlement?
According to the settlement, U.S. residents who used TikTok prior to September 30, 2021, may submit a claim to receive a payment.
If approved, the Settlement could pay $92,000,000 to those who file claims. The final payout will be based off how many claims are filed. So, you know, it could be like $0.10 if everyone files. But still…
Illinois users are eligible to receive 6x the amount, as stated by the settlement notice website.
