US mit Bipartisan Gesetz zum Verbot der TikTok App

By Ninian Carter

December 14, 2022 - US Gesetzgeber schlagen ein Verbot von TikTok vor – die in China überaus populäre Video App – und nennt Sorgen um die nationale Sicherheit als Grund.

U.S. Republican Senator Marco Rubio has announced bipartisan legislation to ban China’s popular social media app TikTok, amid fears the app could be used to spy on users.

If passed, the legislation would block all transactions from any social media company under the influence of China or Russia.

FBI Director Chris Wray believes TikTok’s U.S. operations raise national security concerns, flagging the risk that the Chinese government could harness it to influence users or even control their devices.

In 2020, then-President Trump tried to block new downloads of TikTok in the U.S. but was defeated in a series of court battles.
