Government intentions to ban Tik-Tok are politically pathetic. It is especially pathetic trying to ban Tik-Tok under the pretence of privacy and security. If privacy and security is an issue, most mobile applications would need to be banned. Social media applications, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and even Pokémon GO, take far more user data than Tik-Tok. The only difference is that Tik-Tok is owned by Chinese people and the others are majority-owned by people from the USA.
