If you use TikTok for watching and creating videos, you might want to sit down for this one.

It is actually happening but TikTok Will Be Banned In The US Starting Sunday, September 20 and there are some things you need to know.

First off, this honestly doesn’t seem real or true but it is.

The President is banning TikTok and WeChat in the United States until a deal that he approves of is reached with these companies.

Now, it was said that Microsoft lost the bid for the purchase and overtake the US operations for TikTok and that Oracle actually won the bid.

However, nothing further has taken place causing the ban.

So, what exactly is the ban? Well, if you already have TikTok downloaded on your phone, you will be able to continue using it for now.

However, if you do NOT have it downloaded already, you better do it before Sunday because the ban is for new downloads of the app. This will prohibit growth of TikTok here in the US.

Also, once the ban goes into action, there will be no updates of TikTok allowed which is a problem because app updates often provide bug and security updates. So, we will not have access to those.

“The only real change as of Sunday night will be [TikTok users] won’t have access to improved apps, updated apps, upgraded apps, or app maintenance. Today’s actions prove once again that President Trump will do everything in his power to guarantee our national security and protect Americans from the threats of the Chinese Communist Party. At the President’s direction, we have taken significant action to combat China’s malicious collection of American citizens’ personal data, while promoting our national values, democratic rules-based norms, and aggressive enforcement of U.S. laws and regulations.”

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Fox Business.

That is all that will happen for now but if a deal between Oracle and TikTok isn’t reached by November 12, 2020 we could face a total ban here in the US including not being able to use the app at all.
