The North American country of the United States of America
has decided to ban TikTok, a video sharing app owned by the Asian country of China.
The decision has come shortly after India, one of the key partners
of the US in Asia, banned the app.
The key decision has been announced by US President Donald
Trump. He has said he would release an order within few days.
He has claimed that the Chinese app violated the data privacy
policy followed by the country. The US security authority has said that the app
could be used to secure the personal information of US citizens.
The video sharing company has denied all allegations raised
against the app.
There is a clear political angle in the development. The US
at present not in good terms with China – which the second most powerful
country in the world.
There are at least 80 million people who use this app in the US.
