Congressman Johnson introduces bill to regulate social media app “Tik Tok”

South Dakota congressman Dusty Johnson has introduced legislation he says is aimed at curtailing the social media app “Tik Tok” as a national security risk. The app is owned by a Chinese parent company and reportedly was freely accessing sensitive user data such as passwords, keystrokes, browser history and voice and facial recognition according to a release from congressman Johnson. If passed his “Block the Tok” act would prohibit Tik Tok from accessing U.S. Citizens’ user data from within China and prohibit the installation of the app on government devices. The bill would also call on the Federal Trade Commission to initiate an investigation to determine if TikTok has engage in unfair or deceptive acts or practices.
