A bipartisan group of US lawmakers has introduced legislation requiring ByteDance to sell TikTok within six months to address national security concerns regarding its Chinese ownership. This measure aims to prevent potential surveillance and manipulation of American users by foreign adversaries, notably China. The bill also proposes making it illegal for app stores to host TikTok if ByteDance retains control, underscoring growing tensions between US policy and foreign-owned tech platforms.
