Amazon Tells Workers To Uninstall TikTok App, Pronto

Amazon employees have been told to remove the short-video app TikTok from their devices immediately.

According to CNN, TikTok is owned by the world's most valuable startup, a Chinese company named ByteDance.

But TikTok does not operate in China and functions as an independent subsidiary.

Its servers are based in the US and not subject to Chinese laws.

However, other organizations have moved to ban TikTok.

The Trump administration was at a loss on Tuesday over the president's suggestion to shake down Microsoft in its proposed purchase of Chinese app TikTok. According to Gizmodo, the Trump administration has threatened to ban TikTok in the US, possibly by putting it on a Commerce Department blacklist. The threat is based on largely theoretical concerns that Beijing-based owner ByteDance could use it to spy on tens of millions of users.
