TikTok has stopped working on your phone, can you confirm pleases?
Mine is still working though! ✌
The United State under the President Trump administration has said that it will restrict access to the short-form video app TikTok today Sept 20 if the parent company ByteDance are unable to find a US buyer for its US operation.
This is coming on the hills of the company’s alleged connections to the Chinese government who can at any time request for access into the company’s user data, and this can results into a massive security treat to American Users.
It is yet not very clear though if and when this happens if you are still going to have full access to the app on your mobile device or not.
However, different sources have it that you’ll still be able to make use of the app if you already have it installed on your device, but you will not be able to get any future security patches or updates.
On the issue, the company has said;
“Our community of 100 million US users love TikTok because it’s a home for entertainment, self-expression, and connection, and we’re committed to protecting their privacy and safety as we continue working to bring joy to families and meaningful careers to those who create on our platform.”
Although the company refused to sell its US operation to Microsoft and Walmart it has been in talks with Oracle, and we hope that the deal is going to be completed soonest.
If this goes true as is it is going to amount to a big loss for the company on different level or what do you think?
