At a guess you have downloaded this file from somewhere other than google play store ?

The genuine app will not flag up as a threat.

Please run update manually or wait a couple of hours until the latest modules are downloaded automatically. It appears that TikTok app has recently updated and an old detection was triggered on the app. It has been fixed in the latest engine module.

my TikTok app was updated last night and I received the same threat as mriggins. 

Threat: Android/TrojanDropper.Agent.ELX

After updating modules, it seems to have gone away.

Probably you had outdated modules if detection ceased after a module update. The last change in the detection was make on Nov 3, we haven't fixed anything related recently.
