Tom Cotton, R-Ark., in a letter to the director of national intelligence, asking him to check if any other app with a similar name, TikTok — a very popular Chinese-owned app announced the 15-second videos — is a threat to the national security of the U.S.

“With more than 110 million downloads in the U.S. alone, TikTok is a potential counter-threat we can’t ignore it,” said Schumer, and Cotton. “Given these concerns, we request that the intelligence community is conducting an investigation of the national security risks associated with the TikTok and the other is a China-based content platforms operate in the U.S., and a brief Conference about these findings.”

TikTok is emphasized that the independence of China, as a response to the concerns raised by the senators. However, cyber security concerns prompted the U.S. Navy, to prohibit the TikTok by all of the government-issued mobile devices.
