- New Hampshire GOP Gov. Chris Sununu in signing the executive order late last week cited concerns the Chinese government could “access users’ personal information.”
- “TikTok can harvest large amounts of data from devices it is installed on including when, where, and how the user conducts internet activity,” the executive order stated.
- The concern is that TikTok owner ByteDance is willingly or by force having to give China’s communist government U.S. user data, considering China’s 2017 National Intelligence Law that states “Any organization or citizen shall support, assist, and cooperate with state intelligence work in accordance with the law, and maintain the secrecy of all knowledge of state intelligence work.”
- At least 11 GOP-led states have impose such bans.
