In a move that will be wildly misunderstood, on purpose, of course, it looks like the Trump Administration is set to take some sort of prohibitive action against Chinese owned apps TikTok and WeChat. TikTok is a wildly popular mini-video application, and WeChat is a multi-use communication tool frequently censored by the Chinese Communist Party on their own soil
“TikTok and WeChat are the biggest forms of censorship on the Chinese mainland, and so expect strong action on that,” Navarro alleged.
“What the American people have to understand is all the data that goes into those mobile apps that kids have so much fun with and seem so convenient, it goes right to servers in China, right to the Chinese military, the Chinese Communist Party, and the agencies that want to steal our intellectual property,” he told Fox News.
“Those apps can be used to steal personal and financial information for blackmail and extortion, they can be used to steal business intellectual property and proprietary secrets.”
And, for Americans, that is an invasion of privacy, plain and simple. If the American people understood that fully, few would use the apps, let alone the devices that allow all of us to play with them, there would be hell to pay, honestly. As it is, these apps are not allowed in China, the country that developed them, and have recently been outlawed in India along with dozens of other Chinese owned apps.
Navarro’s words on this subject were actually first brought up by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during a press conference last week. If this is being discussed at the highest levels of the government it is a serious problem and worth considering before downloading those apps on any device.
