China's video-sharing app TickTock is taking legal action to challenge US President Donald Trump's ban.

By mid-September, TickTock will be closed from all types of financial transactions by US-owned company ByteDance, according to an order from the Trump administration.

Tiktak authorities have been saying such fears are baseless from the beginning.


China's video-sharing app TickTock is taking legal action to challenge US President Donald Trump's ban. Trump recently issued an executive order banning ticks. According to the order, from mid-September, all types of financial transactions of TickTock US-owned company ByteDance will be closed.

Recently, US security officials feared that China could use the app to steal the personal information of the US people. However, the Tiktak authorities have been saying that such fears are baseless from the very beginning. They say the app is not controlled by the Chinese government and they do not exchange information with the Chinese government. The number of active users of TickTock per month in the United States is eight million. Trump's announcement took the bitterness about China-US one step further.

Ticktak says they have been trying to work with the Trump administration for a year. However, they have faced lack of proper process and administration. This administration does not pay attention to the truth. A spokesman for the company said the rule of law should not be abandoned and we should treat companies and users fairly. To ensure that, there is no way but to challenge that executive order through the judicial system. The process could begin this week. This information was given in a report of BBC online.

Trump has signed an executive order banning all financial transactions with Ticente, the owner of WeChat, in addition to BitTance, the company that owns TickTock US. Last Friday, Americans of Chinese descent filed separate lawsuits against Trump over the order.

Tightcom's parent company, ByteDance, is headquartered in Beijing and has spread worldwide since it became popular in China. As its popularity grew, so did its criticism. Tiktak has been the most criticized in the United States. Several senators in the country have called for an investigation.


On June 30, India shut down 59 Chinese apps in India, including TicTac and WeChat. New Delhi has decided to shut down these apps, citing them as dangerous for the country. However, Delhi took the decision on June 15 after 20 Indian troops were killed in a border clash with China in Ladakh.
