The federal government should assess the threats posed by China-based apps and software

US President Joe Biden has rescinded an executive order issued by his predecessor, Donald Trump, banning Chinese apps TikTok and WeChat in the United States.

The ban faced a series of legal challenges and was never enforced.

Instead, the US Department of Commerce will now review applications designed and developed by those within a “foreign adversary’s jurisdiction”, such as China.

Biden said the department should use an “evidence-based approach” to find out whether such apps pose a national security risk to the United States.
