The risk of TikTok being banned in the US is getting bigger and bigger. U.S. national security adviser Robert O’Brien recently added that the video platform is recognizing the faces of millions of U.S. citizens, mapping their relationships, and then sending all of this data. about China.

When criticized that Facebook and Google also collect user information, Mr. O’Brien said: “It is not just about finding your interests via the search network to know car advertising. Meanwhile, Tiktok wants to have all personal information, privacy, everything about you. ”

“They will soon be able to score society with all Americans and everyone in the world. We need to make sure that doesn’t happen, so we take TikTok, WeChat and a number of other applications seriously, ”the advisor added.

The risk of TikTok being embargoed by the US became apparent last week, when US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed in a television interview that the government was considering a ban on TikTok.

When asked by the host Laura Ingraham about the possibility of banning Chinese applications, especially TikTok, Mr. Mike Pompeo said: “We have been researching this issue for a long time … I don’t want to surpassing the President, but that is what we are considering “.

In fact, since last year some US military units have banned the use of TikTok on government equipment. Earlier this week, US bank Wells Fargo ordered employees who installed TikTok on their company’s mobile devices to remove the app.

Forecast, if the US banned TikTok, many other countries will follow suit.
