TikTok, Biden administration agree to drop litigation over Trump-era app store ban

In a filing in the US District Court for the District of Columbia, the two sides said they had mutually agreed the suit should be dismissed.
The move follows President Joe Biden’s decision to rescind then-President Donald Trump’s 2020 executive order targeting TikTok. Biden replaced that order with a more sweeping one that addresses apps linked to foreign adversaries including China.

As a result of Biden’s reversal of Trump’s order, Trump’s proposed app store ban became moot. TikTok is still negotiating with the US Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States on a plan to address security concerns surrounding the data of US users.
