Biden Revokes Trump-Era Bans On Chinese-Owned Tiktok, WeChat

President Joe Biden on Wednesday revoked a series of Trump-era executive orders that sought to ban Chinese-owned apps such as TikTok and WeChat, while also directing his Commerce Department to initiate its own review in identifying national security risks associated with the apps.

According to the Associated Press, the new executive order “directs the Commerce Department to undertake what officials describe as an ‘evidence-based’ analysis of transactions involving apps that are manufactured or supplied or controlled by China.”

The department will also reportedly make recommendations on how to best “protect against harm from the unrestricted sale of, transfer of, or access to United States persons’ sensitive data,” including information such as “personally identifiable information, personal health information, and genetic information, and harm from access to large data repositories by persons owned or controlled by, or subject to the jurisdiction or direction of, a foreign adversary.”
