Speaking about the TikTok ban, a representative for China’s Foreign Ministry said, “We firmly oppose those wrong measures.”
All federal agencies have been been told by the US government to remove TikTok from whatever equipment they control. The Bytedance-owned TikTok, one of the most widely used social media applications in the US, especially among younger demographics, has been issued to these federal agencies a 30-day deadline for removal.
This injunction was issued after TikTok was accused of utilising users’ personal information and of having close ties to the Chinese government. So, US legislators think that downloading the application onto equipment held by the government could compromise national security.
