US expressed to ban TikTok and other Chinese apps
US entities have expressed concerns over TikTok in recent months. Last year, the US Navy banned the app over security concerns. In May, Republican Senator Josh Howly said TikTok should be banned for all federal employees.
Earlier today Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, said that the US government is certainly looking at banning Chinese apps including TikTok "We are taking this very seriously. We’re certainly looking at it. We’ve worked on this very issue for a long time; whether it was the problems of having Huawei technologies in your infrastructure…we’ve gone all over the world [sic] to get that out" he said.
