If you and/or your minor child used the TikTok and/or Musical.ly application, You May Be Entitled to a Payment from a Class Action Settlement.

In Illinois, you may be able to get up to 6x the payment if you used the TikTok app to make videos and you live there.

A group of people filed a class-action lawsuit against the defendants. They said that TikTok, Inc. f/k/a Musical.ly Inc., ByteDance, Inc., Musical.ly n/k/a TikTok, Ltd., and Beijing ByteDance Technology Co. Ltd., violated federal and state law by collecting, using, and sharing Plaintiffs’ personal data without giving them enough notice and consent.

A note: If you don’t qualify for this settlement, don’t try to get it.

Remember that you are submitting your claim under the threat of perjury. You are also hurting other people who are eligible for benefits by making a false claim.
