The United States is considering banning other Chinese apps, including Tik Tok

The United States has begun considering banning other Chinese social media applications, including Tik Tok.

Speaking to Fox News, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said,
"We are taking this issue very seriously. We are definitely looking into it. We respect Chinese apps on people's phones." 
But in the United States, the right apps will be given space.

In recent months, members of the US Congress have raised concerns about tik-tok talk, alleging that tik-tok users could leak data to the Chinese government.

Asked if he would advise American citizens to use Tik Tok, Mike Pompeo said 
"only if they want to hand over their private information to the Chinese government."

Reacting to the US Secretary of State's statement, a spokesman for TikTok said: 
"TikTok is headed by a US CEO and has hundreds of safety, security, product and public policy employees and key officials in the United States. "We have no priorities more important than consumer protection and the security of the app experience. We do not provide any user data to the Chinese government, nor have we been told so."

The Indian government justified the ban on these apps by justifying security risks and protecting user data.

On the other hand, the trade war between the United States and China has been going on for a long time and any decision to ban other Chinese apps, including Tik Tok, will only make the situation worse.

Young people's favorite application

Tik Tok, which allows users to make short videos, has become increasingly popular among young Americans.

The company said last year that 60 percent of TikTok's 26.5 million monthly active users in the United States are between the ages of 16 and 24.

U.S. policymakers have also expressed national security concerns over the handling of TikTok user data.
