US President Joe Biden on Wednesday (June 9) revoked an executive order during the period of former President Donald Trump that banned Chinese apps TikTok and WeChat in the US Operations.

This ban has never really taken effect due to a series of legal challenges.

But this does not mean that applications such as Titok have “passed”. Instead, there is a new administrative order under which the U.S. Department of Commerce will review applications designed and developed within the “foreign opponent’s jurisdiction”, including those in China.

Biden said that the authorities should adopt “evidence-based methods” to see if they pose a risk to US national security.
