TikTok Ban - 9/18/2020 Marketing Update

 The Trump administration said it will restrict access to TikTok on Sunday, Sept. 20.

You'll still be able to use TikTok — if it's already on your phone.

But TikTok will vanish from Google and Apple app stores on Sunday, Sept 20.

That means US users looking to install the app after Sept. 20 won’t be able to do so.

And users who are looking for security patches or other updates won't be able to receive them, under Commerce Department restrictions

Talks are still underway among parties including software company Oracle and Walmart to come up with a plan to rescue TikTok by becoming the app’s trusted technology provider.

TikTop has more than 100 million users in the U.S. and 700 million globally.

Parties have until Nov. 12 to finalize a deal or the administration will fully ban TikTok, White House officials said.
