Is a TikTok ban reasonable?

Do you think that TikTok should be banned in the United States?

  • I’ve actually tried to do research on this to determine if user’s privacy is at risk. I came across an article where USA government agency such as FBI say that users browsing history is being shared with China. Now how accurate this article is could be questionable but if it has to do with national security and protecting USA and it’s people then I think it should be banned. Or confirm the rumors don’t exist. 

  • How does this ban function? Is the website totally inaccessible? Is the app blocked from app stores? If the app is already on a citizens phone in a ban area does it still function? Maybe the app still works but there is no service/videos? It is not clear to me.

  • It's very ridiculous, up to a million dollar fine and a possible 20 year sentence. How can anyone think that's ok?

    Well, so far the rumors haven't been confirmed. But the talk still goes on. Montana has banned TikTok...

  • A blanket ban never work for anything, there is supply if there is demand, takes drug for example. Better is to educate and promote better alternative.

  • No, it is not. They are using protecionist measures disguised as "data protection". The equivalent would be all other countries banning Google, Facebook, Amazon and all other tech companies for gathering their citizens' data. 

  • I don't think it is

  • I don’t think it should be banned and let people be responsible for themselves and use the own discretion.

  • Whoa... I have not heard this. Who is this punishment for? Users or Execs?
