Tiktok may be banned even in Australia
There is also talk of banning social media app Tiktok in Australia. The Australian government believes that Chinese social media apps such as Tiktok are a threat to national security and users share data with China. Tiktok has 1.6 million users in Australia. Australia believes that Tiktok, owned by China’s ByteDance, is collecting data from the people of Australia and all information is being stored in a server in China, posing a major threat to national security for Australia.
