President Biden revoked a Trump-era attempt to ban Chinese-owned apps TikTok and WeChat. Instead of the ban of the popular video-sharing app, his administration will conduct its own review of apps with ties to China and other “foreign adversaries.”The White House has issued a new directive to the Commerce Department to take an "evidence-based" approach to scrutinize the transactions on the apps. The officials are primarily looking out to secure the personal and health data of the users from being mishandled.
