FBI Director Wray: Communist China Can Take Control Of ‘Millions’ Of Americans’ Phones With TikTok

  • Wray noted that China’s Equifax hack allowed them to illegally obtain through theft the Personal Identifiable Information (PII) of nearly half the population of the United States.
  • “So it’s the control of the data to conduct all sorts of big data operations,” he said.
  • “It’s the control of the recommendation algorithm, which allows them to conduct influence operations. It’s the control of the software, which allows them to then have access to millions of devices. So you put all those three things together, and again, come back to the starting point, which is, this is a tool that is ultimately within the control of the Chinese government and it to me screams out with national security concerns.”
