Access to TikTok and WeChat will be Banned Starting Sunday
The Trump administration have band TickTock and WeChat from the Apple store in Google store.
Americans Will no longer Access China-based applications WeChat and TikTok from Sunday midnight, citing national security concerns. However, existing TikTok users will still be able to use the app until Nov. 12, but will not be able to access updates from midnight Sunday, according to new rules issued by the U.S. Commerce Department.
Wilbur Ross, the US commerce secretary, said: “We have taken significant action to combat China’s malicious collection of American citizens’ personal data, while promoting our national values, democratic rules-based norms, and aggressive enforcement of US laws and regulations.”
The imminent removals come as Oracle and ByteDance, the owner of TikTok, continue talks with the Trump administration over how to resolve its concerns over the video app. Any deal will also have to be approved by Beijing.
