After a quick vote in the House of Representatives earlier this week, the US Senate has now passed the National Security Package, which includes the controversial potential ban on TikTok in the US. After the US legislative process, the bill now goes to President Joe Biden, who previously committed to signing it into law.

If this scenario comes true, TikTok parent company ByteDance would have two options. Either they sell to a US-based company within the next twelve months. Or there is a risk of an effective ban on TikTok in the USA.

TikTok has been fighting the ban and forced sales. The bill violated the freedom of expression of its 170 million American users. Members of the House of Representatives and Senate, however, have accused TikTok of being a medium of “Chinese propaganda.” The social media app is “tied to foreign adversaries” and “providing significant amounts of user data to the Chinese Communist Party.”
