Despite the fact that in the world TikTok ban for government workers gains momentum over security concerns and the app’s Chinese owners, another popular app from ByteDance has so far managed to avoid similar attention.

CapCut, a video editing tool that helps people quickly create online videos and memes, has been downloaded more than TikTok in recent weeks, according to app download trackers in the US, writes WSJ. CapCut was created by ByteDance just for TikTok, but is also used for other social networks.

The app makes it easier for people to edit videos with different templates, filters, visual effects and music. Users say it helps them create clips that look more professional and have a better chance of going viral on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube.

The app was launched in 2020 and now has over 200 million monthly active users (TikTok has over a billion users worldwide).

In its privacy policy, CapCut states that in order to provide its services, it collects content uploaded by users, as well as their data, including location, gender and birthday, which is a common practice for video editing tools. CapCut says it stores this data in the US and Singapore, just like TikTok.

Last year, CapCut worldwide downloads grew by 43% to over 400 million, with about 7% of downloads since last year coming from the US. Late last year, CapCut began charging users for cloud storage as well as additional features and effects.
