Amazon tells employees to delete TikTok by end of day

Amazon has ordered employees to delete the wildly popular TikTok app from their phones, citing “security risks” associated with the app’s Chinese-owned parent company in a Friday memo.

“If you have TikTok on your device, you must remove it by 10-Jul to retain mobile access to Amazon email,” the Seattle-based e-tailing giant said in an IT email. “At this time, using TikTok from your Amazon laptop browser is allowed.”

A representative for Amazon did not respond to The Post’s request for comment.

TikTok has been under scrutiny in recent days as accusations that the data it collects could be shared with the Chinese government have grown.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said this week that the US is “certainly looking” at banning TikTok and other Chinese social media apps due to security concerns.

“I don’t want to get out in front of (President Trump), but it’s something we’re looking at,” Pompeo said in an interview with Fox News on Monday. “We are taking this very seriously.”

US lawmakers have voiced national security concerns over the short-form video app’s handling of user data, saying they were worried about Chinese laws requiring domestic companies “to support and cooperate with intelligence work controlled by the Chinese Communist Party,” Reuters reported.

India on Tuesday banned TikTok amid a military standoff with China.

Every State’s Travel Guidance for Residents and Visitors

Most U.S. states imposed limitations on interstate and international travel shortly after the coronavirus began to spread across the country in the beginning of February. Five months later, with most of the country open to some extent, travel bans and requirements are also being lifted.

24/7 Wall St. reviewed executive orders from state governors, travel advisories, and guidelines from public health and tourism departments to find and list travel restrictions that are still in place in every state. 

Nationwide, travelers coming from Brazil, China, Iran, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and countries from the European Schengen Area are not allowed to enter the United States based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention travel advisories. On a state level, only Hawaii has a measure in place that compels visitors who refuse to be quarantined to return home immediately without leaving the airport. 

People can still plan summer vacations and road trips, though travelers have to be cautious, wear masks, avoid crowds, and practice good hygiene.
