Bipartisan Bill Reintroduced in the Senate That Blocks TikTok From Exporting Data to China

A bipartisan group of senators reintroduced a bill that would block Chinese-owned social media platform TikTok from exporting data to China.

The Protecting Americans’ Data From Foreign Surveillance Act of 2023, first introduced in 2022, will include several updates, such as directing the Commerce secretary and other agencies to identify categories of personal data that, if exported, could harm U.S. national security.

The Commerce secretary will also be asked to compile a list of low-risk countries where data can be shared without restrictions and a separate list of high-risk countries where exports of sensitive data will be blocked. The department will also be asked to create a system to issue licenses for data exports to nations not on either list.
