FBI is ‘extremely concerned’ about China’s influence through TikTok on U.S. users

Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers Tuesday that he is “extremely concerned” about TikTok’s operations in the U.S.

Wray’s remarks build on those from other government officials and members of Congress who have expressed deep skepticism about the ability of the Chinese-owned video platform to protect U.S. user information from an adversarial government.

He assured lawmakers that “it is certainly something that’s on our radar and we share your concerns.”
