CHICAGO (WLS) — People who have been using TikTok since before September could be entitled to money from a class action lawsuit against the company.

TikTok has disclosed a $92 million settlement proposal from its Chinese parent company, ByteDance. It comes from a federal lawsuit claiming TikTok illegally collected and used personal data from its users.

The lawsuit cites both federal law and Illinois law that allows plaintiffs to seek money when their data is harvested without consent.

You don’t have to live in Illinois to claim your share of the settlement, but the state’s residents could get up to six times more money.

People who think they are impacted can file claims on https://tiktokdataprivacysettlement.com/.

Just don’t be surprised if your piece of the pie is tiny. A recent Pew Research study shows 48% of 18-to-29-year-olds said they use the video sharing app.
