I had similar logs in my Logcat. You can get the process which creates the log by using adb and matching the process number (PID) to the number in the log. Use this command to list the Android processes:

adb shell ps -A

In my case, these were the processes which created the TikTok logs:

  • com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox:interactor
  • com.google.android.apps.wellbeing
  • com.google.android.apps.fitness

It looks like they all come from Google apps (and not TikTok). Also, the logs say com.google.apps.tiktok.*, if it was actually TikTok, it would be something like com.tiktok.*.

I also found this tweet:

And the Twitter user @pratik13butani commented:

Tiktok is an internal component in Google used by many of the apps, it was written and named like that before the social network existed and is absolutely unrelated.

So it seems like it is just an internal Google component.
