TikTok under scrutiny in US Congress hearing

Social video app TikTok is creating a lot of concerns in the US in relation to China and its own privacy practices. The China-based company refused to testify in a Senate sub-committee hearing as part of a national security review. The company was invited, along with Apple, to appear in the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism hearing titled “How Corporations and Big Tech Leave Our Data Exposed to Criminals, China, and Other Bad Actors.” According to the BCC, TikTok said it was “committed” to “working productively” with Congress on issues around national security interests.
