Earlier in the day, the company reiterated that the app is safe and will be back soon. The responses came after McAfee and Samsung Security Scan ToTok identified as malware.
“Some software has tagged ToTok as false-based malware. We ask them to correct the false detection. Try to download the latest version of ToTok from the Samsung Galaxy Store or our official website and the warning will be removed,” the tweet said.
In an exclusive interview with Khaleej Times on December 29, ToTok co-founded Giacomo Ziani reiterated that such developments and allegations of espionage were a “conspiracy.”
“The irony is that our prosecutors have requested a technical analysis from a former NSA employee who concluded that ToTok” just does what it claims to do, and actually nothing more. No spyware, no back doors and no malware, “said Ziani.
He noted that the company had a productive dialogue with Google and will jointly address issues with Apple. The app will be back on Google from Friday.
