No disrespect meant.

There is no way this would happen. F-droid is a place for open software, and tik-tok is the representation of the opposite software model. If a web app was made, it would actually make open source software like bad as well. Especially with TikTok’s mission.

If anybody can prove me wrong, I am more than willing to say I’m wrong.

The back-end (tiktok.com) can be (almost) completely closed but maybe the front-end (F-Droid app) could be libre software with Anti-Features, like:

And the user must know that as soon as the back-end decides it the app will stop working…

Kind regards!

not an App but there is an extension called libredirect libredirect.github.io that uses something called proxitok GitHub - pablouser1/ProxiTok: Open source alternative frontend for TikTok made using PHP

I believe that with the latest update, untrackme also allows redirection to proxitok

I’d like to add it to F-Droid if it’s still alive.

Better to just stay away from tik tok and their associations such as Google and Facebook.

Exactly. Any company that forces you to abide by their rules while stealing & sealing your data illegally or intentionally causing other issues for a person shouldnt be used at all.

Since when did it take all this junk to upload & view videos online? I thought(still do) JS was the worse thing websites adopted but didnt require. I try not to think about the bs used now lol
