Does ANY of my information get accessed by TikTok since Quicken has now partnered with them?

Quicken announced a partnership with TikTok. ALL data in TikTok is accessible to the Chinese government. They are not known for honesty and they are known for hacking data. Is any of my Quicken information (user information, financial activity, etc.) exposed to TikTok in any way?

    Hello @karilyse,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community with your concern.

    Could you please provide the source of where you found this information? I have checked our internal channels and have not found nor am I aware of any existing or new partnership between us (Quicken) and TikTok.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your response.

    This email may likely have been sent from a scammer and not Quicken. To verify this; could you please provide a screenshot of the email? And/or provide the exact sender's email address that this email came from, please?

    For instructions on how to attach a screenshot please refer to this Community FAQ. Alternatively, you can also drag and drop screenshots to your response if you are not given the option to add attachments.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for providing these details. 

    The email you provided is in fact not from Quicken and would likely be a phishing or scam email. We ask that you please forward the email to [email protected] so this can reported to the proper channels.

    Thank you!

    I also received the email stating that Quicken has joined TikTok. The email is from [email protected] That doesn’t look like a scam to me. That looks like quicken and TikTok are teaming up.

    I also received an email from Quicken referencing TikTok. It is the last item in the August update, titled 

    Quicken Update | August 2022

    The email certainly looks authentic. The section that mentions TikTok says,

    I forwarded the email as directed even though a detail review of the source does not indicate it is a scam.

    It appears that the email did come from Quicken but "We've joined TikTok" just means that Quicken has posted some videos on TikTok. Quicken would like us to go to TikTok and comment on the videos.

    Assuming that is the case, your financial data is not at risk. But if you choose to post a comment on TikTok, that will identify you as someone who is interested in Quicken, and whatever you share in your comments will be there for anyone to see.
