Reuters: FBI chief says TikTok ‘screams’ of US national security concerns 

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – China’s government could use TikTok to control data on millions of American users, FBI Director Christopher Wray told a U.S. Senate hearing on Wednesday, saying the Chinese-owned video app “screams” of security concerns. 

Wray told a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on worldwide threats to U.S. security that the Chinese government could also use TikTok to control software on millions of devices and drive narratives to divide Americans over Taiwan or other issues. 

“Yes, and I would make the point on that last one, in particular, that we’re not sure that we would see many of the outward signs of it happening if it was happening,” Wray said of concerns China could feed misinformation to users. 

 “This is a tool that is ultimately within the control of the Chinese government – and it, to me, it screams out with national security concerns,” Wray said.
