The outcome of this decision is uncertain for now, so stay tuned for updates on how it develops. More here: President Biden has signed the TikTok ban. Now what? The U.S. Senate has passed a gnarly bill requiring TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, to sell the app or face a ban. The bill, part of a larger $95 billion aid package primarily for Ukraine and Israel, combines international aid with domestic cybersecurity concerns. The legislation grants ByteDance a nine-month timeline to complete the sale of TikTok, with an optional three-month extension if necessary. The bill also restricts ByteDance from controlling the algorithm that powers TikTok, a crucial element behind the app’s personalized video recommendations. Why It Matters With TikTok used by 170 million Americans, the legislation reflects growing bipartisan unease over privacy and national security risks, particularly fears that the Chinese government could access user data. This bill isn’t just about one app but points to larger tensions between tech autonomy and national security.
