TikTok App is Feeding Data to the CCP

TikTok was launched in China as “Douyin” in Sept. 2016; it had 100 million Chinese users within a year.

In Sept. 2017, the software was renamed TikTok and relaunched internationally.

TikTok rapidly became one of the most popular apps in the world, attracting dozens of A-list celebrity users and conglomerate mergers with the National Basketball Association, pro football, and Comedy Central.

TikTok had almost one billion active monthly users worldwide by 2020, less than four years after launching. However, TikTok may have a negative underbelly.

TikTok is a Chinese company; all private information collected by the app may well be fed directly to the Chinese government, experts warned, citing a slew of Chinese laws that require businesses to work with military dictatorship authorities when asked.

More Details on the Dangers of TikTok

According to Fleming, all of your information on that device, everything you do, and everything you have stored on your phone, has been sent out of the nation and could be used against you.

According to Fleming, the Chinese Communist Party is gathering massive amounts of data. It’s possible they won’t use it against you today.

This threat is not a new one. President Trump signed an executive order in August 2020 to prohibit all TikTok activity in the United States for 45 days if it was not purchased by its Chinese parent company, ByteDance.

A few civil suits and court rulings have since halted Trump’s orders. In June, the Biden regime decided to cancel the commands, rather than directing the Commerce Department to assess whether the platform posed a threat to the country.

Now, it appears the United States government is taking on new measures to address the safety dangers posed by TikTok, as well as other international apps, along with a suggested change in rules to broaden congressional oversight of foreign-controlled applications.

The proposed new rules would give the Commerce Secretary the authority to restrict Americans’ access to foreign apps deemed security threats. According to some experts, however, it may be too little, too late.

Lawmakers are Starting to Speak Out

It is astounding the Biden administration has taken so long to conclude TikTok is a risk to national security. President Trump attempted to address this issue, but Biden was adamant about undoing everything Trump has done, whether it made sense or not.

TikTok, as well as other Chinese-controlled apps, pose an immediate threat to national security. TikTok will be remembered as effective data gathering of Americans by a foreign enemy.

TikTok is Chinese government malware disguised as a social media app.

A few American politicians have expressed similar concerns.

TikTok is owned and managed by a Chinese firm and under the control of the Chinese communist government, according to Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) in a Sept. 2021 tweet.

Americans cannot trust Communist China and should not use its products or services.
