    I've never gone to Temu, Shein or installed TikTok but still pretty sure I'm on a list somewhere...

    I've shopped at Temu, but I'm sure I've been on a list (or two) for a while now.

    Why you must delete the dangerous shopping app Temu ASAP

    Temu isn't unique in all the info it wants to capture from your phone. Most apps out there want as much as you'll give up. But considering its ties to Communist China, the permissions seem even more frightening to me.

    Temu collects, among other things:

    The info you provide, like your name, address, and phone number.

    Details you enter, like your birthday, photo, and social media profiles.

    Your phone or computer's operating system and version, IP address, GPS location (if you allowed it), and browsing data.

    They also gather more about you from third party sources, including Temu sellers, public records, social media, data brokers, credit bureaus, and marketing partners.

    I don't use the App - I've only visited their website (using my laptop) - Don't "shop" using my phone at all.

    I also don't enter my Debit Card info - I paid for the items via Paypal.

    Either way, at this point, with all of the cookies, tracking bots, etc. I'm sure all of that information has been gathered by other sites as well.

    Come and get me, you stinkin' varmints!

    Temu/TikTok - Chinese

    If you've ever gone to the Temu web site, how many browser tabs did they open?
    No way! Seriously?

    I can't convince my kids to leave those apps alone. Apparently Temu makes you pay some game that requires you to invite your contacts to play. I refused but wonder since they emailed me a link if temu already has my info.

    I don't know if Amazon is much better, I've never seen a driver last more than a week or two.
