Earlier TikTok was banned by the Modi government in India. In this way, after India, now America has also given a big blow to China. To stop these apps, there was a discussion in the US for the last several weeks, after which now both apps will be completely banned from Sunday.

The US Commerce Department has issued an order on Friday, according to which both Chinese apps will not be downloaded in the US from Sunday, September 20.
Recently, in the directive issued by the President, it was said that a large number of information is being taken from users from these apps and these risks are real. This data can possibly be accessed by the Chinese Communist Party. The action was preceded by a news story in which Trump said he had held talks with Walmart and Oracle representatives to decide on TikTok. TikTok is currently owned by Beijing-based ByteDance.
