Is TikTok really a threat to national security?

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

TikTok, the popular Chinese-owned social media app, has become a target for state and federal lawmakers over the past two years because of privacy and security risks. They are concerned that the Chinese company that owns TikTok, ByteDance, could share information from its more than 100 million American users with the Chinese government.

More than a dozen states have banned TikTok from government-issued devices, while congress, state lawmakers, college campuses and cities have adopted or considered rules to outlaw the app. TikTok proponents have argued banning the app would infringe on their First Amendment rights to free speech, and the matter would go to the Supreme Court.
