India has already of course taken upon itself to ban hundreds of Chinese apps within the country \u2013 including the likes of TikTok, Aliexpress and also PUBG mobile and now, it seems that the United States will also go down a rather similar path. A report coming in from Reuters goes on to claim that the US president in Joe Biden could end up signing an executive order which will end up being aimed at safeguarding Americans\u2019 sensitive data, and this will end up being done by forcing Chinese apps to take tougher measures in order to protect private information if indeed they want to remain in the US market. It has been claimed that the goal of such an order is to keep foreign adversaries such as China and Russia from gaining access to rather large amounts of personal as well as proprietary business information.

Indeed the agency may end up negotiating conditions for the sake of their use in the United States or ban the apps. While it is the case that the new order hasn\u2019t exactly named any companies, it could end up capturing more apps than as compared to the Trump administration\u2019s bans and also hold up better if it is the case that it will be challenged in court. The government happens to be rather concerned about China\u2019s ability so as to track locations in relation to governmental employees, as well as building dossiers of personal information for the sake of blackmail and to conduct corporate espionage. The US commerce secretary in Gina Raimondo will end up deciding which apps to target for the sake of the US action, but of course, they must end up meeting certain criteria.
