The US president Donald Trump has recently signed laws meaning that businesses in the US must stop using TikTok within 45 days. Mr. Trump made this law because he thinks TikTok are taking American user’s personal information and then it could be sent to the Chinese government.

TikTok said that they were very protective of their user’s personal information. This law will also affect the income of many people in the US who make videos on TikTok for a living. It will also affect 70 million US TikTok users - about a quarter of the American. population.

A few weeks ago, TikTok was banned in Hong Kong and India after a new Chinese security law and due to suspicions of TikTok collecting personal information.
