I mean, yeah, it's true that TikTok's app is a security and privacy risk and no sane person should install it.

But that's also true of the Facebook app and the Instagram app and the Twitter app and the WhatsApp app.

I suspect the only reason they care about TikTok is the spying is being done by Chinese companies instead of American ones so the data is available to the Chinese government instead of the American government.

If they have to take TikTok out of the stores then they should take the rest of the surveillance media apps out too.

> "TikTok poses an unacceptable national security risk due to its extensive data harvesting being combined with Beijing’s apparently unchecked access to that sensitive data."
