United States President Joe Biden has lifted the ban on TikTok and WeChat applications imposed by his predecessor Donald Trump.

The corresponding order was made public on Wednesday, June 9.

The text of the document indicates that such bans should be introduced after a thorough study of the threats posed by applications created by programmers associated with the government of unfriendly nations.

It is specified that the U.S. Department of Commerce should take action only if the software really threatens the privacy of Americans or security.

Biden ordered the Commerce Department and other federal agencies to develop guidelines to “protect personal data, including personal information” from misuse.

Recall: Trump has claimed that Chinese apps pose a threat to national security. He even tried to force the sale of TikTok to U.S. investors.
