An FCC commissioner has called on Apple and Google to remove TikTok from their app stores. Brendan Carr, a Republican member of the commission, said that the Chinese-owned app “poses an unacceptable national security risk due to its extensive data harvesting being combined with Beijing's apparently unchecked access to that sensitive data." Karim Hijazi, CEO of Prevailion, breaks down the potential threats posed by TikTok, how it's different from other popular apps, and if the ban will actually come to pass. “This access to the data for supposedly improving the application is being accessed by Chinese engineering groups that could be susceptible to government control or coercion or perhaps or even working for the government. This is a big concern that I think everyone has.”
