The US is taking another big step towards banning TikTok – here’s what you need to know

A TikTok ban in the United States is closer than ever before, with the US House of Representatives passing the relevant legislation on Saturday – meaning it could become law within days.

As reported by Android Authority and others, the short-form video and social media app must cut ties with Chinese owner ByteDance within the next six months (with a possible three-month extension) if it wants to continue operating in the US.
