In the United States, TikTok just so happens to be a very popular app among the general public. Many people use TikTok to create fun videos, promote their companies, or otherwise take advantage of what the app has to offer.
However, there have also been certain security concerns raised when it comes to TikTok. The terms and services that people agree to when they use the app are eyebrow raising, to say the least.
TikTok users are granting the app incredible access to their personal information, going all the way down to the keystrokes on their phone. For this reason, some governments have moved to prohibit TikTok from being used on official state and/or federal devices.
China, which owns TikTok via ByteDance, remains deeply displeased about moves to crack down against TikTok. The communist regime is subsequently lashing out against the United States.
The latest from China regarding TikTok bans
According to the People’s Republic of China, the United States is “overstretching” national security concerns and even “abusing” the power of the state. Some people may view these accusations to be ironic, given the communist leadership style that remains inherent to how China operates.
