tiktok 02US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday that the United States is “certainly looking at” banning Chinese social media apps, including TikTok, suggesting it shared information with the Chinese government, a charge it denied.
 

US lawmakers have raised national security concerns over TikTok’s handling of user data. Pompeo said Americans should be cautious in using the short video app owned by China-based ByteDance.


TikTok said it has never provided user data to China. “We have no higher priority than promoting a safe and secure app experience for our users. We have never provided user data to the Chinese government, nor would we do so if asked,” TikTok said in a statement.


美国正在考虑封杀抖音


美国正在考虑禁止抖音(国际版)等中国社媒体应用APP在美国发行。
 

蓬佩奥在周一晚上接受了福克斯新闻频道的采访。他在回答主持人提出的美国是否应该禁止中国社媒体应用的问题时回答道:“关于人们手机上使用的中国应用,我可以告诉你,美国会解决这个问题的。”蓬佩奥说,美国对这个事情是非常认真的,“我们在这个问题上已经关注了很长时间。”
 

但蓬佩奥表示,他不想在这个事情上抢在总统的前面。


抖音在美国和其它西方国家非常流行,成为中国以外排名第一的中国社媒体平台。今年头三个月,抖音下载量多达3.15亿次。
 

如果美国对抖音等中国应用颁布禁令,这将是中国应用产品在海外市场遭遇的第二次重大挫败。印度日前发布禁令,58种来自中国的应用产品在印度全国商店下架,其中包括抖音、微信等中国最流行的社媒体应用。

美国议员提出的理由是:抖音处理用户数据的方式存在国家安全问题。
