Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

Is the agreement of this ban by some groups to do more with the content and main demographic of TikTok users rather than actual privacy concerns?

If it’s concerns, how do they justify other apps and services that gather and track data similarly, i.e. , , etc.?

Am here for the ban discourse.

How people negotiate their data privacy/rights is an area that really interests me.

Does allowing a ban on this app set precedent for the government to be able to ban other apps they deem harmful?
