Tik Tok ban on Sunday


The US Government has announced plans to restrict access to TikTok and WeChat this coming Sunday as the Trump administration’s executive orders against the two apps are set to take effect.

CNN notes that the Department said that as of Sunday, any moves to distribute or maintain WeChat or TikTok on an app store will be prohibited.

Trump has moved aggressively against Chinese parent company Byte Dance, announcing his intention to sign the executive order that would effectively ban TikTok in the United States unless they found an American buyer by September 20. Trump claims that the hugely popular app could be used as a spying tool by Beijing, and that it could be leveraged to collect personal data on US citizens.
