TikTok Exec declares agreement with US government to address concerns over user data

During a nearly three-hour Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on Wednesday, Democratic and Republican lawmakers pressed the company on issues with Chinese employees’ access to U.S. user data and whether any employees had ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
