Australia's Decision To Annoy Trump - TikTok is safe

Australia completed the TikTok investigation that was launched last month. As a result of the investigation, it was concluded that TikTok did not contain any threat.

TikTok, one of the world's most popular video sharing apps, is under pressure from the US for allegedly sharing data with the Chinese government.

US President Donald Trump first announced that he would ban the Chinese practice, but then abandoned this decision and gave Microsoft a mandate to buy TikTok.

The Australian government has completed its investigation for China-based apps like TikTok and WeChat last month. The country's security agencies concluded that the Chinese video platform does not have any national security concerns at this stage.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said:

"We could not find any evidence to ban TikTok. There is no evidence that Australian citizens' data is in danger. But we will continue to monitor the implementation." 

Still reminding that the application is based in China, Morrison said that citizens should use the application in consideration of this.

While Australia has yet to find any evidence, it is forbidden to use TikTok in the country's defense forces.
