The Joe Biden administration has indefinitely suspended the plan that forced TikTok to sell its US operations to a group made up of Oracle and Walmart.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the government of the Democratic president will review the actions promoted by Donald Trump. The former presidency, The Trump administration, indicated that since it was a risk to national security, it was forced to sell TikTok to a US company.
The new government, however, will not take its eyes off TikTok and other Chinese apps. US national security officials will continue in talks with ByteDance. Among the main issues to be addressed are data collection, its security, and how to prevent the Chinese government from accessing it.
“We plan to develop a comprehensive approach to securing US data that addresses the full range of threats we face. In the coming months, we hope to review specific cases to gain a comprehensive understanding of the risks,” said National Security Council spokeswoman Emily Horne.
In essence, the Biden administration is not going to undo everything the previous administration has done, but they do want to take action based on current reports. In the coming months, we will see the new measures that the current government will carry out.
