Two US senators have called TikTok a Chinese surveillance tool in an attempt to stop the Biden administration from striking a deal that could allow the video-sharing app to continue operating in the US.

President Joe Biden's administration is seeking a security deal with TikTok. It would include routing US users' traffic through servers maintained by Oracle. But critics believe data could still leak into China.

It’s not just the content you upload to TikTok but all the data on your phone, other apps, all your personal information, even facial imagery, even where your eyes are looking on your phone. TikTok is “one of the most massive surveillance programs ever, especially on America’s young people,”

Arkansas Republican Tom Cotton said on "Fox News Sunday" said.

Two Republican lawmakers, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and Representative Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin, are set to introduce a bill to ban the use of TikTok in the US.

Earlier last week, TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew said the company was working on a project called Project Texas that would isolate sensitive data from US users so that only US-based employees would have access to it.
