Rep. Adam Kinzinger

If you are one of the millions using the TikTok and Zoom apps, you could be helping out a communist country.

Congressman Adam Kinzinger isn’t a fan of either popular app.  He thinks the apps are routing information of yours to China.  Kinzinger tweeted Sunday that TikTok can be used to “build a picture for blackmail, corporate espionage, influence, etc.”  He’s asking Congress to stop using both apps.

Kinzinger plans to introduce legislation dealing with TikTok and Zoom in the interest of security and free speech.  TikTok is a Chinese-based company while Zoom officials have argued they are an American company with offices in China.
