    "Trump Administration to Ban TikTok and WeChat From U.S. App Stores

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration said Friday it would bar the Chinese-owned mobile apps WeChat and TikTok from U.S. app stores as of Sunday, striking a harsh blow against two popular services used by more than 100 million people in the United States.

    The restrictions will ban the transferring of funds or processing of payments through WeChat within the United States as of Sunday. In the case of WeChat, the restrictions will also prevent any company from offering internet hosting, content delivery networks, internet transit or peering services to WeChat, or using the app’s code in other software or services in the United States.

    Those same prohibitions on providing services go into effect on Nov. 12 for TikTok..."

    "TikTok says Oracle can review its source code, but deal won’t allow tech transfers

    SEOUL — China's TikTok sought to tamp down domestic controversy over its deal with Oracle and Walmart, saying in a blog post Monday that there would be no technology transfer to Oracle, though the U.S. company would be able to check its software for safety...

    'The current plan does not involve the transfer of any algorithms or technology,' ByteDance said in the post on its official WeChat account. 'Oracle has the authority to check the source code of TikTok USA'..."
