TikTok has agreed to resolve a lawsuit alleging that the app captured biometric and private data from users in the United States. Several law firms reached a settlement through a social media app on Thursday, and TikTok agreed to pay $92 million.

The lawsuit also accused TikTok of passing private user data to third parties. The law firm said in a joint press release that the settlement agreement will require the company to “launch a new privacy compliance training program.”

A TikTok spokesperson said in a statement: “Although we disagree with these claims and not proceed with lengthy litigation, we want to focus our energy on building a safe and happy experience for the TikTok community.”

US$92 million will be used to compensate TikTok users. The settlement still needs to be approved by the court.
