Amazon asks workers to delete TikTok amid security concerns

published on July 13, 2020

Tick tock you guys know what that is that's that fun video sharing platform that Gen Z has apparently become obsessed with well now it is being banned by Amazon we have Yahoo Finance's Dan Roberts with the details hey Dan yeah hey Kristin so

Amazon just about an hour ago sent out this email to all of its US employees whose mobile devices are connected to their internal Amazon email and the email is very terse and tells them to delete the app from their

Devices by the end of the day today or they will lose access to their Amazon email pretty interesting and of course the larger conversation here is that earlier this week Mike Pompeo had said that yes the US was looking into

Potentially banning tik-tok of course tik-tok has a us office in LA and just recently hired former Disney exact Kevin Mayer to be a CEO but it's owned by Mike dance which is in China based in Beijing and actually tick-tock quickly responded

Here's the statement that tick-tock sent to Yahoo Finance talks about safety of the app and then here is the relevant part to Amazon while Amazon did not communicate to us before sending their email and we still do not understand

Their concerns we welcome a dialogue so we could address any issues they may have and enable their team to continue participating in our community and one other very interesting part of this that I would highlight the Amazon email to

Employees notes that for now they're free to still access tick-tock on their laptops their Amazon laptops on a computer browser so kind of interesting of course most people don't access tick-tock that way but for example I can

Go to twittercom on my computer and I can see tick-tock video is in tweets but mostly we're talking about use of the mobile app I don't have tick-tock so I know nothing about using I'm also not Jen's II so anyway thanks so much Dan
