Biden Issues Executive Order On TikTok & Other Apps From China
President Biden has revoked former President Trump’s executive orders targeting TikTok, WeChat and other Chinese social media companies.
Biden has replaced the orders targeting individuals companies with one executive order aimed at apps linked to foreign adversaries including China.
The White House says the new order will safeguard Americans’ personal data.
Policymakers are concerned that apps connected to China could be used by the communist Chinese government to disclose users’ personal data.
