Should you think twice before downloading TikTok? Amazon is struggling to decide.
On Friday, Amazon told employees to delete the app to prevent data collection on the company, but hours later they retracted their decision. The U.S. has been suspicious of TikTok and is even considering a ban of the Chinese-owned app. TikTok has released statements in response to Amazon’s email that reinforce their commitment to user privacy. Still, the concern for security remains for those U.S. users who have downloaded the app 170 million times.
