tile over painted concrete floor

I want to tile over a painted concrete floor. The paint is very thin and scrapped in some spots. Do I need to remove all the paint or just tile over it using thinset??

If the paint is flaking off now, and you don't remove it. Then the thinset will be sitting on something that could release later.

For best results, as much of the paint as possible needs to come up.
