First it was Microsoft, now it’s Oracle, and now  Alphabet Google may be in the game to purchase a share of TikTok. Apple had said that it was interested in buying Tik Tok but has no interest  the Chinese app  as of now. TikTok is owned by  the Chinese company  by ByteDance.

President Trump has been trying to ban the  social media app in the US due to  the Chinese stealing our data. Trump felt it was one of the options to punish China for sending the Coronavirus to the United States. Amazon even told employees to delete the app because of security risks but they later changed their minds and stated that was an error.

As reported by The Street, CNN reported an email sent to the DNC security team that  read,” We continue to advise campaign staff to refrain from using TikTok on personal devices. If you are using TikTok for campaign work, we recommend using a separate phone and account.” Source the Street.com
