In just a few days, people in the U.S. will no longer be able to download TikTok or WeChat, another popular Chinese app

2020 just keeps on coming. In addition to the constant barrage of other bad news we’ve all been facing this year, the U.S. Department of Commerce just made an announcement about TikTok, one of the most popular social media apps at the moment and the center of a mounting national security controversy: Beginning Sunday, U.S. users will be banned from downloading TikTok on all app stores.

WeChat, another popular Chinese app that works as a messaging platform, will also be banned beginning Sunday.
