President Donald Trump says he may ban TikTok in the United States.
The video-sharing app is one of the fastest-growing social platforms in the world. It has been downloaded more than two billion times.
TikTok is popular in the US. It is used by 80 million Americans every month, and the US is also home to its biggest star, Charli D’Amelio. She has over 75 million followers.
However, the President has expressed concerns about the app which is owned by Chinese firm ByteDance.
There have been concerns that the app takes users’ personal data and passes it on to the Chinese government.
However, TikTok has denied accusations that it is controlled by or shares data with it, and says all US user data is stored in the US, with a backup in Singapore.
There are a number of countries expressing concerns about the app.
TikTok was recently been banned in India and Australia is also considering banning TikTok.
