Tiktok to be banned
Chinese video app

US Senators wants TikTok banned in the United States. The senators say they have evidence of security and data infringement against the federal law.

The senators also said that the TikTok have violated children privacy protection.

The Four U.S. senators, including a China hawk, exhorted the Federal Trade Commission to investigate the claims that the popular video app TikTok violated a consent statute protecting children's privacy.

In their letter, lawmakers noted a report by the Center for Digital Democracy, Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood and others saying that Chinese-owned TikTok had failed to take down videos made by children under age 13 as it agreed under a 2019 consent agreement with the FTC.

The report added that TikTok failed to provide parents with "direct notice" of data practices before collecting information on children and did not put a link to its privacy policy on its home page, as required under the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
