Australia's federal government is planning to join the list of countries that have banned Chinese video-sharing application TikTok on government devices over security concerns, as it fears that the platform may be used for foreign interference by China, Business Standard reported citing ABC News. Recently, many nations have decided to block TikTok, after revelations that its staff based in the U.S. and China used the application to spy on American journalists who were writing stories critical of the platform.
