Americans have become increasing concerned that ByteDance is sharing data from U.S. customers with China's ruling party.

  • TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew will testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee about the video platform’s relationship with the Chinese Communist Party as well as its privacy and data practices, the committee’s chairman announced Monday.
  • “ByteDance-owned TikTok has knowingly allowed the ability for the Chinese Communist Party to access American user data,” Chairwoman Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers says.
  • During what will be his first congressional committee appearance, Chew will testify March 23 about “TikTok’s consumer privacy and data security practices, the platforms’ impact on kids, and their relationship with the Chinese Communist Party,” the committee also said.
