TikTok & WeChat May Disappear From App Stores

As we reported earlier this year, the US Government is on a mission to crack down on foreign apps like TikTok and WeChat. Last month rumors heated up about Microsoft buying TikTok, but this seems to have fallen through. In the meantime, the clock has been ticking and both of those apps may disappear from the Apple and Google app stores on Sunday. This will prevent new users from downloading the app but it still function for anyone who has it installed. If a US-based firm cannot come to an acquisition deal by November 12, the apps will stop functioning.
